Trailhead decking: Affordable composite decking with a best-in-class warranty
New Deckorators® TrailheadTM composite decking offers an entry-level, low-maintenance composite that does not sacrifice quality or peace of mind.
Trailhead makes composite decking more affordable for homeowners interested in trading up from wood decking. This entry-level wood-plastic composite (WPC) decking family has a target retail price of $2 per foot, closer than ever to the price of treated-lumber decking but without all the maintenance.
Deckorators backs the quality and durability of Trailhead with a best-in-class 25-year structural, 25-year stain-and-fade, 25-year removal-and-replacement warranty. Unique to Deckorators, the 25-year removal-and-replacement limited warranty covers the labor costs to remove and replace the product if it fails due to a manufacturing issue, giving homeowners unmatched peace of mind.
Trailhead is available in three colors — Ridgeline (gray), Pathway (brown) and Canyon (red brown) — with natural embossing and rugged undertones to complete the perfect combination of looks, performance and price.
ALX aluminum railing post extensions: Perfect for hanging outdoor lights
Deckorators ALX aluminum railing post extensions make it simple to install and hang popular outdoor lighting such as string lights and bistro lights. They help extend deck enjoyment into the night, add ambience, increase safety, and even bring the vibe of outdoor restaurant dining to the backyard.
Designed to fit the minimal, sleek Deckorators ALX Classic and ALX Contemporary railing systems, the Textured Black extensions turn 39-inch railing posts into 105-inch (8.75-foot) posts or 44-inch posts into 110-inch (9.16-foot) posts. Installation only requires inserting the extension into the ALX aluminum railing. An aluminum hardware clip is included to hook the outdoor lighting from post to post.
Deckorators ALX aluminum post extensions come with a lifetime limited warranty on manufacturing defects, a 25-year removal-and-replacement limited warranty and a 10-year limited salt/coastal water applications warranty.
ALX Contemporary deck gate: Where safety and style come together
The ALX Contemporary deck gate adds a safe and convenient entrance and exit point that coordinates seamlessly with modern, simplified ALX Contemporary railing. Available in Textured Black and Textured White, the attractive gate can help keep children and pets safe and contained.
Easy to install and use, the gate comes in a preassembled 48-inch wide gate available for a 36-inch railing height. A gate jamb kit is available for 36-inch and 42-inch rail heights, allowing for custom gate sizes. Gate hardware, hinges and a latch are included. To install, builders simply need to cut ALX Contemporary railing to size and assemble the gate with brackets.
The ALX Contemporary deck gate is backed by a lifetime limited warranty on manufacturing defects and powder coating and a 25-year removal-and-replacement limited warranty.
