Novation™ & Moisture Shield®
Deck building materials don’t have to be restricted to just using wood. There are other non-wood decking alternatives that you can use that look just as good and are much easier to maintain.
This durable blend of wood fibers and plastic weathers without disintegrating maintains its shape, does not shrink or expand, and will last the lifetime of the residence. It is dimensionally consistent, won't splinter, has no knotholes, is completely rot-resistant, and requires no annual sealing. Crowe Fence and Deck Supply carries many different brands of Composite decking. MoistureShield being one of them.

Ipe is extremely dense and should last over 25 years.
