Latitudes Wave is available in Gray and Walnut, and opens the door to homeowners who want the beauty and endurance of a wood-composite product with the simple elegance of a hidden fastener system, all at an affordable price. Also at IBS, the Company is to launch a new color for its elegant Latitudes Captiva™ decking: Willow, which joins Gray, Cedar and Walnut in the Captiva palette. It will be available in 12’, 16’, and 20’ slotted lengths with solid boards available for use as perimeter boards or stair treads. Captiva decking features Strandex technology and is capped with an ultra-low-maintenance surface. That means Captiva delivers exceptional resistance to fading, water damage, staining and scratching — leaving a smooth, beautiful surface on your deck. Plus, it’s backed by a 25-year limited warranty. The Company also will veil 12-inch fascia boards to match all Latitudes decking options. These boards feature Strandex composition and match all Latitudes colors, eliminating the need to paint or stain a deck’s wood structure. “By listening to our customers and the consumer, we continually enhance our popular Latitudes decking products to provide even more options for creating outdoor living environments that complement every look and style at many price points, and that meet the distinctive tastes of homeowners and designers,” said Senior Product Manager Chris Camfferman.
