GAF Offers Tropical Beauty in Your Backyard

GAF, manufacturer of ultra-low maintenance DuraLife™ Siesta™ decking, announces the addition of a new, chic and stylish Hardwood Collection.  DuraLife™ Siesta™ decking is the number one rated composite decking product by the most trusted consumer advocate publication in the U.S. 

The DuraLife™ Siesta™ Hardwood Collection offers the beauty of a finished premium hardwood deck in four natural and easy-to-maintain earth tones, including Brazilian Cherry, Garapa Gray, Tropical Walnut, and Golden Teak. GAF’s unique color application process combines multiple colors to give a more natural appeal and overall look. DuraLife™ Siesta™ Hardwood Collection’s ColorLock™ Multi-Layered Finishing System helps resist fading over time, unlike ordinary composite decking products. While ordinary decking products can stain with every spill, the DuraLife™ Siesta™ Collection is also highly resistant to stains, allowing for quick and easy clean up with just soap and water. 

“We are very excited about the new Hardwood Collection,” stated Chris McGroarty, product manager at GAF. “These decking boards offer exceptional durability and performance, while displaying a truly beautiful new aesthetic with a blend of colors and different grain patterns that truly mimic expensive hardwood boards.” 

The DuraLife™ Siesta™ Collection is environmentally friendly; it’s made, in part, of recycled materials and uses no toxic chemicals or preservatives. It Is also backed by the strongest warranty in the industry — including the only warranty with both material and labor coverage for product defects --- which is  transferrable and not voided due to incorrect installation, unlike other manufacturers.*
