ATLANTA, GA — MoistureShield, a signature brand at Oldcastle APG, is partnering with J.M. Thomas Forest Products to expand distribution of the manufacturer’s full composite decking portfolio at all branch locations in Ogden, Utah; Denver, Colorado; and Boise, Idaho.

“We’re excited to partner with J.M. Thomas Forest Products as we continue to expand product distribution across North America,” said Matthew Bruce, Vice President of Sales at MoistureShield. “We are confident that our products will be a tremendous value to their company by providing their selling regions with a unique decking line that sets them apart from any competitor.”

“We chose MoistureShield because we believe it is a unique product line with a great selling proposition,” said Amy Monson, Vice President of Marketing at J.M. Thomas Forest Products. “The way MoistureShield markets and brands their products and the way we are able to sell those products speaks a different language than other competitors — we are excited to embark on this partnership.”

All MoistureShield products are engineered using a proprietary Solid Core manufacturing process, making its decking resistant to moisture and well-suited for installation in the ground, on the ground or even underwater. The Vision line of capped composite decking features MoistureShield’s exclusive DiamondDefense Coating, the strongest cap in the industry made to resist stains, scratches and damage from impact. Select Vision colors also offer proprietary CoolDeck Technology, which can reduce heat absorption by up to 35%.

MoistureShield’s Meridian line features a TruTexture Surface, a low-profile wood grain pattern with reduced pattern repetition that evokes the look and feel of real wood. Rounding out the capped product offering is the entry-level Elevate line; while Vantage uncapped composite decking provides dependable workability beyond wood, with composite performance.

MoistureShield is backed by a 50-year transferrable structural warranty and has stood up to the elements for more than 30 years with no structural field failures.
