Atlanta-based deck builder New Castle Building Group announced manufacturing and distribution capabilities for its newly launched New Castle Steel deck framing, formerly known as Trex Elevations®.
New Castle Steel offers unparalleled performance characteristics that meet the demands of contractors and end-users looking for durable, safe, and sustainable steel deck systems.
"I have been in the construction industry for over 20 years and have a passion for building longer-lasting decks and outdoor spaces for my clients," said Jason Alloway, owner of New Castle Building Group. "When the opportunity arose to manufacture a quality lightweight steel product, I jumped at the chance. I believe our New Castle Steel branded products bring new possibilities in what contractors can offer clients in both deck design and performance."
New Castle Steel is triple-coated to stand the test of time without shifting, splitting, warping, rotting, or rusting. Precise engineering ensures surfaces remain flat. It is lightweight and easy to work with, but its unparalleled strength enables cantilevers and contemporary curved deck designs. This non-combustible material has a Class 1A fire rating and is rot- and termite-proof. New Castle Steel contains 25% recycled steel and is a 100% renewable resource, contributing to LEED points for building projects.
