SKOKIE, IL—AZEK®, the building industry’s leading brand of technologically advanced and high performance building materials, is featured in Sunset’s 2016 Bay Area Idea House, a house built for visitors interested in the latest trends in home construction. Nestled in Oakland, California’s Claremont Hills, this innovative home boasts expansive views of the San Francisco Bay and an ultra-modern design. The Bay Area Idea House will be open to the public from August 19 through September 25.
The expansive home, featuring AZEK Deck in Dark Hickory, will also be showcased in the November issue of Sunset magazine. AZEK Deck’s Dark Hickory from the Vintage Collection® is made with the latest in materials science innovation. It resists scratches, stains, insects, moisture, mold and mildew, and has a Class “A” flame spread rating. All AZEK Deck products carry industry-best 30-year fade and stain and limited lifetime warranties.
“We are committed to developing AZEK products that uphold the highest standards for quality and versatility, and these products are engineered to last beautifully,” said Julia Fitzgerald, chief marketing officer of AZEK. “Since AZEK products truly represent the intersection of beauty and science, and the Bay Area is known for its breathtaking, sweeping views and love for open spaces and light, AZEK Deck is a natural fit for Sunset’s Bay Area Idea House. And, with the increasing importance for fire safety in California, the Class “A” flame spread rating offers additional peace of mind to the homeowners.”
Every year, Sunset partners with a builder, interior designer, architect and landscape architect to create a show home that displays the industry’s best state-of-the-art designs and decorating ideas. This year, the art-filled Bay Area Idea House is brimming with texture and one-of-a-kind pieces, pushing the envelope in an unprecedented way. Design enthusiasts can visit Sunset’s Bay Area Idea House at 540 Gravatt Road in Berkeley, California.
“California lifestyle highly encourages interaction between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The durability and quality of AZEK decking allows for the numerous decks facing the San Francisco Bay to be enjoyed for years to come,” said Lauren Geremia, the founder of Geremia Designs, the creative minds behind this year’s house.
