Modified Wood Building Materials

Nothing warms a space like real wood. It provides natural beauty that just can’t be duplicated. However, as we all know, it does have its drawbacks, which has opened the doors for science and innovation to enter. New to the marketplace, and likely to only gain popularity as the technology evolves, are modified wood building materials.

Using proprietary methods to modify the wood structure with the use of thermal and/or non-toxic chemical agents, fast growing woods like ash, pine, sycamore and poplar, are turned into extremely durable, long lasting exterior building materials. And like other natural wood building products, at the end of their original intended use, they can be repurposed or recycled, leading to zero waste.

These amazing new modified wood products are being found in commercial, as well as residential construction, all over the world. However, distribution seems to be a drawback.

Due to a patented process of modifying softwoods, Kebony products are extremely durable. Distributed by Cedar Country Lumber

At this time we are pleased to offer Kebony products by special order. Developed in Norway, Kebony has created a patented process using bio-based liquid that enhances the properties of sustainable softwoods to provide them with hardwood characteristics, such as extreme durability and stability. Refined and beautiful, Kebony modified wood products are backed with a 30-year outdoor warranty. They offer products for decking, cladding and millwork. Learn more HERE

AZEK® Decking Named #1 in Quality in 2017 BUILDER Brand Use Study

SKOKIE, IL—AZEK® decking has been honored as the #1 Quality product for composite/PVC decking by building and construction-industry professionals through the 2017 BUILDER Brand Use Study.

AZEK Building Products invests heavily in materials science research and development to create a capped polymer decking product that resists scratches, stains, fading, mold, mildew, and moisture damage. Through product innovation, the AZEK Building Products team ensures AZEK decking is a high quality, durable product that also adds beauty and value to a home.

Developed with advanced polymer engineering, AZEK’s Alloy Armour Technology is a proprietary alloy formulation that provides improved performance characteristics, such as outstanding weathering and UV protection, resistance to scratching, and the ability to hold color over time. This technology has allowed AZEK decking products to carry an industry-best, 30-year limited fade and stain and a limited lifetime warranty.

“AZEK lives at the intersection of science and style,” said AZEK Building Products CMO Julia Fitzgerald. “Builders tell us AZEK’s polymer core makes it perfect for heat bending to create curves in premium decks. We also find that builders are changing our cities’ skylines with AZEK rooftop decks.  The lightweight durability is perfect for rooftop applications.”

“Being recognized for offering a product that is best ‘Quality’ by those in the field is truly rewarding,” said Patrick Barnds, General Manager of Decking at AZEK Building Products. “We always strive to earn the respect of our customers as being the company that manufacturers the best decks.”
