New London, NC – October 14, 2010 | At the North American Decking and Railing Association’s (NADRA) Annual Meeting and National Industry Awards banquet held in Baltimore, MD, on September 15, 2010, six prestigious deck builders were recognized in nine categories of the 2010 NADRA Deck Competition. Barry Streett, of Rolling Ridge Deck Co., Inc., and Jamie Turrentine, of Southwest Fence & Deck, Inc., won Best Alternative Deck Over 500 SF and Best Alternative Deck Under 500 SF, respectively; both of which were built with Fiberon® decking products. A diverse panel of media and industry representatives honored the deck competition winners for skill, craftsmanship, and creativity.
“Fiberon is proud of each deck competition winner, but especially of FiberPROs Mr. Streett and Mr. Turrentine who were recognized for their deck construction and design that features our Horizon and Tropics decking products,” said Chris Beyer, vice president of marketing for Fiberon. “We believe the enduring beauty and durability of these products parallels the talent and originality these Fiberon deck builders put forth to win in their respective categories.”
“I’ve been working with Fiberon products for close to five years and have always had a positive experience with both product performance and customer service, ” said Barry Streett, Rolling Ridge Deck Co., Inc. “This project was quite a challenge, and the realistic look of the Fiberon product really helped pull it all together.”
“We’ve had great success with the Fiberon Horizon product line,” said Jamie Turrentine, Southwest Fence and Deck. “For this particular project we used the Horizon Tropical color IPE which has been very well received by our customers. It’s the closest looking product to real wood on the market.”
