Case Study: The Two-Tiered Deck

A homeowner was looking to create a next-level two-tiered deck around their backyard pool. They reached out to Jim Hartley, owner of Handyman Hartley, who brought their vision to life using Zuri® Premium Decking in Chestnut. Zuri combines the unique natural beauty of exotic hardwood with the durability and low maintenance of PVC.

Gorgeous decking that keeps its cool.

While working on the deck over several hot summer afternoons, Hartley noticed how well the Zuri boards maintained their temperature. “The material does not seem to ever get super hot. Other composite decking gets so baking-hot that sometimes you can’t even stand on it. I’ve never had that problem with Zuri. It also rained a few days, and I never worried about slipping on the deck.”

“It’s an outstanding-looking deck. I would absolutely use Zuri® again and recommend it to others.”

Outdoor space transformation that lasts.

Around a high-profile, high trafficked area like a pool, Zuri® distinguishes itself in all kinds of ways. Unlike competing decking products that don’t resemble wood, Zuri’s cellular PVC core is capped with a photo-realistic woodgrain print and a clear acrylic that resists stains from salt, chlorine and other organic debris. Zuri also provides scratch, fade, moisture, UV light and color fade resistance. The result is luxurious outdoor living space without the upkeep and long-term maintenance costs of real hardwood.
