Case Study: STRONGDEK™ Ocean Front Fiberglass Decking Impervious to Salt Water Environment

1401-PerdidoBeach-CoastalResortDecking-Main 1401-PerdidoBeach-CoastalResortDecking-DetailSTRONGDEK™ installed at Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama in 2003 has withstood the test of time and elements. Two years after the decking installation in 2005, Orange Beach was pounded by Hurricane Dennis and several panels from the deck were blown away during the storm. Many panels were recovered in good condition and were easily re-installed.

The owner of Perdido Beach Resort, Jim Medlock, told Strongwell, “The deck has held up very well. During the summer months it has a function on it just about every Friday and Saturday night.”

Upon inspection in 2013, the panels showed some minimal wear and tear, but were holding up well with only periodic pressure washing required for maintenance.
