Treated Wood Decking Being Investigated After Failing on Exposure to the Elements

Americas Watchdog's Homeowners Consumer Center is launching a national investigation of all treated wood products used as decking material. According to the group, "the treated wood decking material was not supposed to fail due to exposure to the elements, but some is, and we want to identify the manufactures who made these products." The group says some of this treated wood decking material is very expensive, it was not suppose to deteriorate, but it is, and we want to find out who made it so we can help make things right for the homeowners. Homeowners who have witnessed a failure of their treated wood decking material can call the Homeowners Consumer Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their web site at Http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com.
