Porcelain Decking Systems: Boldly Going Where Man-Made Materials Have Gone Before
About the Sponsor
Introducing the next generation of deck surfaces. The entire deck system is like a large lego set including the posts, joist/beams, stairs, railing and deck which can be assembled in just a few hours, it’s indestructible. This took about 6 years to get all the testing done. We launched nationally but found the public weren't quite ready for something so radically different, so we decided to scale back a bit, and just do the deck board. Once we established a foothold we reintroduce the entire system. The perfect deck surface, a place where family and friends gather, special moments are shared, and memories are made. Our dedicated team of professionals set out to create a premium deck surface, an extension of your home, a place that allows you to live outside ordinary.
