As other decking brands have moved to capped products, MoistureShield decking is now the only composite brand to offer 2x4 and 2x6 uncapped deck boards, which are water resistant and sized for dock and marina uses.

With our unique manufacturing process we’re able to offer marina owners an attractive, affordable and durable choice for their decking needs.

As boating season gets underway this spring, dock and marina owners looking for durable, moisture-resistant decking will find the solution with MoistureShield® composite decking. As the only water-resistant composite decking available in both 2x4 and 2x6 sizes, MoistureShield is both an affordable and attractive decking solution for any marina application – including decks, docks and boardwalks. It’s the only composite option that can withstand the rigors of harsh marina conditions. Made with a unique manufacturing process that protects each board to the core, MoistureShield is also the only composite decking durable enough to be installed on the ground, in the ground or underwater and still be protected by the industry’s leading lifetime warranty.

“Marinas from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico rely on our water-resistant composite decking as an alternative to wood, concrete and steel,” said Brent Gwatney, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MoistureShield. “Other manufacturers have tried to introduce composite boards for these applications, but the market continues to weed out products that don’t hold up. Many of them have turned to capped composites that still aren’t moisture resistant, and are expensive. With our unique manufacturing process we’re able to offer marina owners an attractive, affordable and durable choice for their decking needs.”

Notable marina applications of MoistureShield composite decking include:

  • Port Royale Marina, Lake Lanier, Georgia

“Prior to MoistureShield, we always used 2x8 pressure treated lumber. Long-term durability is the key of course, that’s why we chose MoistureShield. Plus, our customers love it,” said Brent Pearson, Operations Manager for TEI Industries.

  • Port of Orillia, Trent-Severn Waterway, Ontario

“We like the look of the product and expect its durability to save on maintenance over the years,” said Susan Lang, Harbor Master.

MoistureShield decking and railing’s water resistance results from a one-of-a-kind manufacturing process that fully encapsulates wood fibers in polyethylene plastic. This protects each board to the core, and allows them to be cut, drilled and fastened without compromising their ability to stand up to water. MoistureShield products come in a variety of colors, and deck boards are available with grooves to accommodate hidden fastening systems.
