Composite decking has not been around nearly as long as other building materials, and EverGrain decking was one of the first brands to burst onto the scene. A product of Envision decking, EverGrain is still an excellent option for homeowners today.
We briefly discussed this brand when we covered the best composite deck review, but this time around, we're going to take a look at their classic product. We are also going to tell you what to expect from the company's other three decking lines under the Envision brand.
Envision Decking Collections
Envision has been producing EverGrain decking for around twenty years, but since that time, they have expanded their lineup to include other products. Over the past decade, they moved into capped composite decking doing with accessories like skirting, railing, screws in the EverClip hidden fastener system. All of the company's decking is compression molded, which adds greater detail and a more grain-like texture.
Envision EverGrain Decking
EverGrain decking is an affordable bull composite deck board that's available in four different colors. Homeowners looking for something traditional will appreciate Weathered Wood, Cedar or Redwood while Cape Cod Gray offers nice change-of-pace. As these multi-tinged boards are uncapped, you can expect them to fade over time naturally as they weather outdoors.
Envision Distinction Decking
the distinction decking collection from Envision is there premium composite deck line. These boards are capped with a random wood grain pattern. This collection only has four colors available as well, but each board features of variation of between 4 to 6 colors. GreyWood, Rustic Walnut, Spiced Teak, and Shaded Auburn are in-line with EverGrain from a color standpoint, just far more detailed.
If you prefer blended colors in your deck boards, you will want to check out the Envision Inspiration decking collection. While Weathered Wicker, Tangled Twine, and Barnwood Plank aren't quite as wild compared to the distinction line, the color variations are noticeable but natural. These two-tone blended boards have a bonded outer layer, just like the companies premium series.
Envision Expression Decking
The most affordable capped composite deck board from Envision decking comes from the expression taking collection. These compressed boards have distinct green patterns with no repetition across the board. There is no color variation but there are four colors to choose from with canyon Ridge, Caribou Brown, Woodland Bark, and Harbor Grey.
Envision EverGrain Deck Warranties
EverGrain maybe the companies oldest brand of decking and uncapped, but you'll still get a solid warranty. There is a 25-year guarantee on that collection for residential use, and TAMKO applies the same warranty to the Envision decking collections under their banner as well. Homeowners can transfer their warranty one time, but only within the first 5 years. Oddly enough, their hidden fastener system and deck screws are only guaranteed for 20 years.
Envision Deck Sizes
All boards from Envision Decking are sold in standard sizes. That means you can choose from 12’, 26’, and 20’ deck boards. Sizes are standard as well, but only with the Envision lines, not EverGrain. The Distinction, Inspiration, and Expression collections are all sized at 1” x 6” nominally. The EverGrain deck boards are available in that size as well, but you can also choose a variant v measuring 2” x 6”.
Where to Purchase EverGrain and Inspiration Decking
Envision's lineup of decking products aren't as widely available as boards from TimberTech. That means you won't find them in large hardware stores like Home Depot, so your next option is to search for a local source through the company's website. We were able to find several Envision deck dealers through this method although no pricing information is available.
Envision Decking Pros, Cons, and Ratings
You won’t find nearly as many colors from the EverGrain collection or Envision's other lineups compared to larger brands. That said, their two premium lines look just as good as the big brand's deck boards. Their budget-friendly decking lines are nice looking as well, just not quite as realistic.
Pros: Nice price points across the collections. All decking including the affordable EverGrain series, is made in the USA. Solid 25-year warranty on their decking.
Cons: Lack of colors compared to other brands. Their decking could be difficult to obtain and price depending on where you live.
