Durable Decking

Positioned right on the ocean, our Beachtown Idea House required building materials that could withstand the humid weather and harsh coastal elements. Because prime outdoor living space was a must, the team selected a decking product made of cellular PVC. Though it has the look and grain of real wood, the material resists mold, scratches, and even wine and food spills. The trim on the house is composed of the same PVC-based material.

Decking and trim: AZEK. Furniture: Gloster. Fabric: Sunbrella.
