Durable and Sustainable Decking That is Built to Last
By manufacturing long-lasting, durable products that do more than just reduce waste in the manufacturing process. Longer lasting, well-made building materials won’t end in landfills after just a few years of use, meaning less pollution and a healthier environment.
We will continue to minimize our environmental footprint, conserving critical resources, limiting waste, and producing safe decking products and solutions that strengthen our company’s environmental stewardship and help our customers reduce their environmental impact as well.
A 12×12 foot TruNorth deck removes 12,000 plastic bottles from landfills and saves 90 gallons (343 L) of oil. Plus, since TruNorth boards are wood-free, each deck offsets at least 1,132lbs (514kg) of CO2 emissions. Together, let’s leave the trees in the forest.
Doing More With Less
The majority of composite decking sold in the world is manufactured overseas, then shipped and distributed. TruNorth and Clubhouse decking uses significantly less resources as it is made in North America using energy efficient and water conserving practices.
