Modern Bungalow Features Two 40-Foot Decks with 16-Foot Windows, Blending Indoor And Outdoor Living Space. Fortis Aluminum Deck Boards Were Chosen for Their Marine-Grade Resistance to Salt Water and Harsh Weather Conditions

Fortis Aluminum Decking

Fortis Aluminum Decking was chosen for its ability to withstand harsh marine conditions.

Mr. Carkonen said he was initially interested in Fortis Aluminum Decking because of its ability to withstand exposure to salt water conditions. "... I chose Fortis primarily because of its saltwater rating."

Dennis Carkonen was a custom homebuilder for over 25 years. When he retired in 2011 to build his own waterfront home on Washington’s Hood Canal, he designed a modern bungalow with two 40-foot balconies and 16-foot windows that allow for panoramic views of the canal. Carkonen said he put as much thought into the design and aesthetics of his balconies as he did into the inside living spaces of his home because it was important to have a seamless incorporation of inside and outside living spaces.

Mr. Carkonen said he was initially interested in Fortis Aluminum Decking because of its ability to withstand exposure to salt water conditions. "Because the house is so close to the water, I needed a material for my decks that could withstand exposure to salt water. I chose Fortis primarily because of its salt water rating." Mr. Carkonen also added, “I was very impressed by the Wahoo Decks sales team. Since I am so far away, it was important to me to find a company I could trust. They were able to assure me of the quality of the product, make helpful suggestions, and answer all of my questions.”
