Deck material used by Bryan
Hi,

I saw a show a few months ago. It might have been part of the Leave it to Bryan series, except he was working on his house in the mountains. On the show I saw, he was working on his deck. He explained that he was using a new product that had the durability of Trex, did not require yearly maintenance, but was real wood and not made from plastic. Does anyone know the name of that material?

Thanks for the help.

It could have been this product. There should be some information available on the episode if you knew where to look.

Thanks for the link. I don't think that is the product as it doesn't say that it does not need continuing treatment over time.

In terms of finding information on the episode, unfortunately, I don't know where to look. That is why I am asking here. If you know where I can find information on the episode I would be happy to check.

Robb I am not sure either. There are some on the forum that have advised on this in the past. Maybe they will chime in on the subject. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Try looking around this site:

I didn't see a resource guide on the website though. It is a Canadian production so going to the Canadian site might be more productive.

Thanks so much, swschrad, and all who answered. I think that is it. I tried to watch the video as I can now see it is the House of Bryan show, 2nd season, and the episode called Hit the Deck. But when I try to watch it says something about wrong region. I guess there is a restriction of some kind.

Again, thank you.

The Canadian networks block access from the states because they run the shows on US networks. To see his videos you need to watch then on HGTV.com or DIYNetwork.com in the USA.

I wouldn't waste my time with those so called products. We are just now seeing all over the internet about composite decking, law suit after law suit...
If your going the extra cost just buy something that has been proven over and over.

Bryan's product was a treated wood, but not your typical PT wood product. It was on his House of Bryan Lakeside project.

uh, Nona, I wouldn't have gone there. the bad guys are considerably less than 1%. considerably.

as far as treated decking goes, I will continue to expect that wood products outdoors require regular maintenance over their lifetime (or you get a third or less of that) but a good initial treatment extends that considerably. the best possible product would be ipay mahogonay, and that gets its maximum lifetime while it is still part of the living tree Wink same as cat fur, it only looks good and holds up while it's on a purring cat.

Per the Perennial Wood company's web site, the product used by Bryan for his island retreat is no longer being sold by them. Apparently the Emerson Chemical Company CEO didn't want to be in the building products business so they discontinued the line. It is currently being marketed by Accoya Wood.

Check out Accoya Wood (www.accoya.com)

Cheers.
