SKOKIE, IL—AZEK Building Products, an industry leader in technologically advanced, high performance building materials, is featured on the 2017 This Old House Idea House located at 84 East Matunuck Farm Drive, South Kingstown, Rhode Island. The 3,200-square-foot, three-story shingle style residence features AZEK on its wraparound porch, deck and screened-in porch. Amidst a patio and outdoor shower, future homeowners will truly be able to embrace outdoor living in this picturesque coastal town. The house is currently open to the public for tours. It will also be featured in both the October issue of This Old House magazine in addition to the 2017-2018 season of the Emmy®-Winning series, This Old House.
The Idea House features AZEK® Porch in Slate Gray and AZEK® Deck’s Harvest Collection® in Island Oak™, both offering attractive, on-trend grays designed to stand the test of time and resist mold, mildew, moisture damage, stains, scratches and fading. These durable products are scientifically engineered to last beautifully and withstand harsh weather that can affect Rhode Island.
“We invest in material science so that our premium building products look great for decades while also providing homeowners with a durable and low-maintenance outdoor living space solution,” said Julia Fitzgerald, Chief Marketing Officer of AZEK Building Products. “AZEK decking and porch are ready to stand the test of time no matter what the New England weather brings.”
This Old House partnered with Union Studio Architecture and Community Design, Sweenor Builders, and Denise Enright Interior Design for its 2017 This Old House Idea House. The team incorporated smart-home tech, weather-resistant, energy-efficient materials and thriving-in-place products and design to create an inspirational beach home for growing families and plenty of multi-generational guests.
“Because it’s situated in a seaside community, our 2017 Idea House has to be able to stand up to the elements—both extreme coastal weather conditions and lots of visitors,” said Claudia Jepsen, Vice President of Marketing at This Old House. “We chose AZEK for its durability and beauty. The rich, warm grays of the AZEK Porch and Deck are perfect complements to our sand and sky color palette.”
