Genovations Deck and Railings Frequently Asked Questions


How would you describe Genovations PVC Decking?

Genovations® Decking is an ultra low maintenance alternative to wood and other engineered decking products. It does not have any foam or wood fillers, making it the ultimate deck flooring material. It will not absorb moisture, enabling the product to stay as strong and durable as the day it was built. The comfortable, slip resistant surface has no exposed fasteners providing a safe, barefoot-friendly surface. Genovations Deck Flooring requires no free airflow clearance, so it can be placed directly over surfaces, such as concrete without the need for additional framing.
