Atlanta — MoistureShield distribution has expanded in Florida through a partnership with BlueLinx Holdings Inc. based in Marietta, Georgia. BlueLinx will now distribute the full line of MoistureShield composite decking products from their distribution centers in Miami and Jacksonville, in addition to their Lakeland, Florida location.
“The BlueLinx team is excited to offer MoistureShield distribution from our Florida facilities to our valued dealers in these regions, using our strong service platform,” said Paul Lyle, BlueLinx’s Regional VP of the Southeast Region. “Adding MoistureShield allows us to offer our customers a full range of decking products and options.”
The MoistureShield product line features Vision capped wood composite decking and exclusive DiamondDefense Coating. MoistureShield also features CoolDeck technology, for select products, which is designed to reduce deck board surface temperatures by up to 35% compared to conventional capped wood composites. Other products include Infuse decking, with a wood-grain finish and Vantage, an uncapped composite with the workability of wood. All MoistureShield decking features the Solid Core Difference for advanced strength and moisture resistance, the company says.
“We are very pleased to expand our MoistureShield distribution footprint with BlueLinx in Florida,” said Ken O’Neill, EVP of National Group, Oldcastle APG. “We know this is a very rough time for Florida and BlueLinx will be relied on for its high levels of service to dealers, as they assist in the rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Dorian.”
MoistureShield composite decking and railing is manufactured from 95% recycled content, which the company says diverts tens of millions of pounds of plastic and wood scrap from landfills annually. It can be installed directly on the ground, in the ground or under water. The line is backed by a warranty against decay, rot and termite damage.
Headquartered in Marietta, Georgia, BlueLinx distributes its comprehensive range of structural and specialty products to over 15,000 national, regional, and local dealers, as well as specialty distributors, national home centers, industrial, and manufactured housing customers.
