MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company, announced that its Meridian capped composite decking will appear in two episodes of “This Old House”, as Silva Brothers Construction renovates the 1880s Concord Country Cape home. Airing January 13, 2022, Episode 4314 titled “Sunshine Power” will show the installation of the moisture-resistant deck and on January 27, “Cinderella Story” Episode 4316 depicts the cast reflecting on the modest cape’s transformation and sums up the improvements made, including final reveal of the deck.
In many locations, “This Old House” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on PBS but check local listings here and enter your ZIP code for the exact time in your area. Full episodes are also available online the Sunday night after each episode’s original airdate here. You can also watch recent episodes on PBS.org, PBS digital apps, The Roku Channel, and on the “This Old House” app.
The 1880s Country Cape deck features Meridian in Citadel color, a cool Atlantic gray shade with a natural patina, a nice complement to the home’s navy blue color.
“We are excited to have Meridian appear on a classic show like “This Old House”, says Matthew Bruce, VP-Sales, MoistureShield. “With minimal upkeep, Meridian combines MoistureShield’s Solid Core manufacturing process for superior moisture-resistance with its TruTexture Surface evoking the real look of wood for the authenticity older homes require.” He noted Meridian also has the proprietary CoolDeck option, providing deck surfaces with up to 35 percent less heat absorption than other composites in a similar color – all at an extremely competitive price point.”
All MoistureShield products, which can be installed in the ground, on the ground or even underwater, are proven in the field for 30 years with zero structural failures and backed by a 50-year transferable structural warranty.
