Podcast Episode 80 — Shawn Van Dyke at the 2017 Remodeling Show and DeckExpo
Talk about alternate materials for decking as well as easing customer fear.
In this special episode, the fourth recorded live at the 2017 Remodeling Show and Deck Expo, Fine Homebuilding editor Justin Fink and editorial director Rob Yagid talk with FHB Ambassador Shawn Van Dyke.
But first, the guys talked with Larry Harnish from Moisture Shield, the director of marketing at the company that makes synthetic and composite decking materials. Larry talked about the water-resistance and natural appearance of his product. And he mentioned something new from Moisture Shield: “Cooldeck” decking that does not get too hot to walk on.
Shawn was a guest back on the Fine Homebuilding Podcast in Episode 33, so go back and listen to that one for more from him.
