Deceuninck North America’s Clubhouse PVC Decking Revitalizes the Porches on an Historic Tavern in Bedford, Pa.
MONROE, Ohio, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Deceuninck North America, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality systems for windows, doors, and outdoor living, has contributed to the restoration of the decks and patios at Jean Bonnet Tavern, an historic tavern and inn in Bedford, Pa. Keystone Vinyl, a company specializing in the installation of decking, vinyl railing systems and fencing, installed nearly 1,200 sq. ft. of Deceuninck’s Clubhouse(TM) PVC Decking on guest room balconies and the back porch that serves as part of the tavern’s outdoor dining area.
“The Jean Bonnet Tavern dates back to the late 18(th) century, which means any renovations had to maintain the tavern’s authentic appearance,” said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “With its deep-grain embossing and wide variety of colors, Clubhouse PVC Decking was the optimal solution for a project such as this. The decks are appealing to the eye, they match well with the look of the rest of the structure, and they are now stronger and more durable than ever before.”
Clubhouse Decking is 100-percent PVC and contains no wood or wood fillers. It is formulated to be up to 25-percent lighter than most wood and composites, and its denser cell structure offers superior strength and solid underfoot feel with Deceuninck’s Korelite® technology. Korelite also helps to keep moisture out and reduces the opportunity for degradation from mold, mildew, freezing and thawing.
SunShield® technology helps protect Clubhouse from the harsh effects of the sun, including UV resistance and fade protection, resistance to cracking and brittleness, and surface degradation. Clubhouse Decking is also 100-percent recyclable and does not require painting or staining. It features a limited lifetime warranty with 25-year fade and stain protection backed by Deceuninck.
“Clubhouse by Deceuninck was the perfect choice for this project,” said Josh Weyandt, partner of Keystone Vinyl. “Its warranty can’t be matched. It’s practically maintenance free. Clubhouse also retains its color and is slip- and scratch-resistant. All of this was important to the Jean Bonnet.”
The tavern chose Clubhouse Decking in cobblestone to create a stacked stone appearance to match the look and feel of the historic structure.
