Experienced Homebuilder Chooses Fortis Aluminum Deck Boards to Complete Waterfront Home in Washington State

Experienced Homebuilder Chooses Fortis Aluminum Deck Boards to Complete Waterfront Home in Washington State

Modern Bungalow Features Two 40-Foot Decks with 16-Foot Windows, Blending Indoor And Outdoor Living Space.

Fortis Aluminum Deck Boards Were Chosen for Their Marine-Grade Resistance to Salt Water and Harsh Weather Conditions

The Carkonen residence with Wahoo Fortis aluminum decking features two waterfront balconies.

The Carkonen residence features two waterfront balconies.

Dennis Carkonen was a custom homebuilder for over 25 years. When he retired in 2011 to build his own waterfront home on Washington’s Hood Canal, he designed a modern bungalow with two 40-foot balconies and 16-foot windows that allow for panoramic views of the canal. Carkonen said he put as much thought into the design and aesthetics of his balconies as he did into the inside living spaces of his home because it was important to have a seamless incorporation of inside and outside living spaces.

Mr. Carkonen said he was initially interested in Fortis Aluminum Decking because of its ability to withstand exposure to salt water conditions.

“Because the house is so close to the water, I needed a material for my decks that could withstand exposure to salt water. I chose Fortis primarily because of its salt water rating.” Mr. Carkonen also added, “I was very impressed by the Wahoo Decks sales team. Since I am so far away, it was important to me to find a company I could trust. They were able to assure me of the quality of the product, make helpful suggestions, and answer all of my questions.”

Wahoo Decks to Showcase Rockwood Thermally Treated American Hardwood Decking as Part of the SeeThru House at the Fall Atlanta Home Show

Wahoo Decks to Showcase Rockwood Thermally Treated American Hardwood Decking as Part of the SeeThru House at the Fall Atlanta Home Show

The 31st Annual Fall Atlanta Home Show and all new Outdoor Living Expo will kick off this weekend on September 5 through September 7, 2014, at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.

Wahoo Decks will feature Rockwood Thermally-Modified American Hardwood decking at the 3,000 square foot SeeThru House built by members of ConsultAHomePro.com.

Rockwood’s Well-Done Stain Walnut decking is a North American Hardwood that has been thermally-modified to resist adverse effects of an exterior environment.

Also featured will be Wahoo Decks’ DryJoistEZ structural deck waterproofing system.

“Most homeowners don’t realize that pressure treated wood is pumped full of pesticides, fungicides and metals,” says Jon Bailey, Vice President of Wahoo Decks and co-founder of Rockwood Timber Group. “Rockwood uses only heat and steam in the thermo wood or thermal modification treatment process, zero chemicals, it’s a ‘green’ choice for the homeowner….when the wood is ‘cooked’ the end result is a decking product with the look of an import hardwood with a 25yr rating for exterior use.”

Also featured at the ConsultAHomePro’s SeeThru House is Wahoo Decks’ patented deck drainage and deck waterproofing system, DryJoistEZ.

DryJoistEZ serves triple duty as the structural joists for the deck, the deck waterproofing and the finished ceiling. The precision extruded aluminum panels of the DryJoistEZ structural deck waterproofing system won’t warp, rot, or decay over time and the panels will protect the substructure of any exterior deck.
