Why We Use MoistureShield

By John Lea // |

Outdoor Living Done Right

Everyone wants to have a perfect outdoor living space: whether you want a cozy night by the fire or a space to entertain friends and family, you want your deck design to meet your desires, needs, and budget. But how do you go about executing your vision for your outdoor sanctuary? Decksouth is here to help! We use MoistureShield technology to build our customers the backyard of their dreams. Our award-winning services and skills ensure that your outdoor living space is as durable as it is gorgeous.

MoistureShield’s Cutting Edge Technology

Decksouth works exclusively with MoistureShield, an industry leader in creating composite decking material. MoistureShield utilizes their cutting-edge Solid Core technology to ensure that their composite wood decking is sturdy, moisture resistant, and free of rotting or warping. Here are some MoistureShield decking innovations that we often use in our projects.

  1. CoolDeck® Technology: All composite decking provided by MoistureShield utilizes CoolDeck Technology, which serves to keep your deck board cool to the touch by reducing up to 35% of heat absorption - even under the hot Georgia sun!
  2. DiamondDefense™ Coating: MoistureShield’s deck boards are coated in their trademark DiamondDefense liquid polymer solution, to create strong, damage-resistant wood composite boards.
  3. TruTexture™ Surface: MoistureShield wants to provide the look and feel of an authentic wood grain finish, without risking wood’s capacity for damage. Their trademark TruTexture Coating gives your deck that realistic wood grain texture, with added scratch resistance. This allows you to spend less time and money on maintenance costs, and more time spent relaxing in your new backyard oasis. 

MoistureShield has pioneered these innovative methods that have enabled Decksouth to create beautiful, hardwearing, and comfortable outdoor living spaces for our clients.

MoistureShield Decking in Action

In a recent project, we built a two-story porch that included a beautiful spiral staircase, a fireplace for the chilly Georgia nights, and 16ft sliding doors. For this design, we chose a MoistureShield Vision decking in a smokey gray color. The Vision collection is their strongest wood composite board, protected by a DiamondDefense™ Coating that resists scratches, stains, and damage on impact. We wanted this design to not only look amazing but last forever, and we knew MoistureShield was the way to go.
