CALIFON, N.J. - Here's good news for anyone planning to build or renovate a deck. Now, for the first time, there's a hidden fastener system available for all decking materials, wood and composite, EB-TY®, the award-winning firm that invented the systems, today announced.
"No matter what kind of decking material you choose - including composites and hardwoods - or what climate you live in, we have a hidden fastener system for you," said Glenn B. Eberle, EB-TY vice president of sales and marketing. "Plus," he added, "our Hidden Deck Fasteners(TM) also are great for boardwalks and boat docks."
According to EB-TY (WWW.EBTY.COM), decks have become one of the most important features of American homes today. More and more people are coming to realize that having a deck enhances the value of their home as well as their lifestyle. They extend any home's living space and connect people to Nature all year round.
"We invented EB-TY Hidden Deck Fasteners because we wanted to build beautiful, safe, long-lasting decks for our clients without splinters and hundreds of nail and screw holes that, aside from being unsightly, allow moisture to seep into the wood, leading to water damage, " said Harry Eberle, founder and president of the family-owned firm. "Our easy-to-install Hidden Deck Fasteners give decks a clean, uniform appearance. They are virtually invisible from top or
bottom, so they highlight the beauty of all types of woods and composites, " he added.
EB-TY's Hidden Deck Fasteners are safer than nails and screws. They don't pop up like nails and screws, which is good news for people who love to be barefoot when they're outside, enjoying their deck.
In addition to aesthetic and safety considerations, EB-TY's Hidden Deck-Fastening Systems(TM) are long lasting and maintenance free. They're made in the United States of ultra-violet resistant polypropylene. They can't rust, they're compatible with every climate, and they're guaranteed to last 100 years with normal use.
EB-TY Hidden Deck Fasteners recently were featured on A&E Network's Inside This Old House, and have been featured on national television programs such as the Learning Channel's Men in Tool Belts, Designing Spaces and the BBC Series, Moving Up.
EB-TY won the Journal of Light Construction's Innovation Award for its "innovative, high-quality" hidden deck fasteners, the MVP (Most Valuable Product) 2005 Award from Hanley-Wood Publications and has been featured in building magazines including This Old House, Fine Home Building Magazine, The Family Handyman, Better Homes and Gardens Special Publication "Garden Deck and Landscape," Builder/Developer Magazine, Remodeling Trends, Do!, Extreme How-To, Journal of Light Construction, and other national/international publications.
