Fiberon announces Martin Weiss and his family as the winners of the first Deck Day Giveaway video contest.

The Weiss family will take home a $20,000 composite decking outdoor living space.

NEW LONDON, NORTH CAROLINA, July 29th, 2014—With tens of thousands of votes and social media shares, the Deck Day Giveaway video contest has officially come to a close. Martin Weiss submitted the winning entry.

With a video that highlights how he and his family enjoy their outdoor living space every day, Martin’s submission is both fun and meaningful. With quirky humor spliced with touching family moments, the winning video shines the spotlight on what Fiberon is all about—having fun and spending time with others.

When the contest officially kicked off, Fiberon asked submitters to answer a question with a video response. That question: “what is your favorite memory of your outdoor living space?”

For Martin Weiss and his family, the answer is “everything.” From gardening and father-and-son playtime to grill outs and dog tricks, the Weiss family truly gets the most out of their deck. As the video shows, all the hours the family spent on their outdoor living space resulted in wear-and-tear.

The Weiss family had a wood deck, and after a few years of making memories, the boards began to splinter, the nails began to pop out, and mold grew on the railings. Now that Martin Weiss will receive a new composite decking outdoor living space, his family can spend all the time they want out there without worrying about depreciation.

According to Edie Kello, Director of Marketing Communications for Fiberon, the Deck Day Giveaway video contest affirmed that the composite decking product gives families opportunities to spend time together in a beautiful space without having to worry about splinters and rotting, or having to stain or paint the deck and rails every year.

“It’s not about home improvement with [Fiberon]. Our composite decking gives families more time to enjoy outdoor living —whether that’s watching the dogs play in the backyard, going for a swim, or relaxing after a hard day at the office. These videos were a joy to watch, and we appreciate the time and creativity the contestants put in to making these videos. ”

Martin Weiss’ submission was declared the winner through user voting. Many homeowners spent time and energy putting together their videos, and the voting often shifted back and forth.
