Green Bay, WI – July 12, 2010 – Green Bay Decking, LLC, The Composite Solutions Company, today announced that its flagship product, GeoDeck™ Composite Decking, now has a current and updated evaluation report from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) for all four product colors, including the newest color released, Walnut.
ICC-ES is the United States’ leading source of technical information on building products and building technology for code compliance.

The evaluation process culminates with the issuance of reports on compliance with the major U.S. building codes, which are available at www.icc-es.org.
GeoDeck Composite Decking, manufactured by Green Bay Decking, LLC, received an evaluation report (ESR#1369) from ICC-ES, providing documentation that the environment-friendly, high performance, composite decking meets code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, designers and homeowners rely on the ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide assurance for using or approving building materials in construction projects. GeoDeck’s full evaluation report can be found at www.geodeck.com.
"We are pleased that the new walnut color, updated quality control, and process improvements implemented on GeoDeck are fully sanctioned and approved by ICC-ES," said Lanny Jass, president of Green Bay Decking. "The internal and third-party testing, updated process improvements, and subsequent renewal of GeoDeck’s evaluation report further validate both the mechanically superior performance of GeoDeck in residential decking applications, and reaffirms to our customers that GeoDeck is an excellent choice in the composite decking market."
ICC-ES President Mark Johnson added why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. "Green Bay Decking can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements," Johnson said.
