Doesn't look like a huge big deal but may come in handy for some of you to know about.

LP Building Products (Louisiana-Pacific) has issued a Product Advisory for decking products, including railing and accessories, sold from its Meridian, Idaho plant after January 1, 2005

Some of the product can prematurely deteriorate and break, posing a risk of injury.

Deck owners should check decks for safety and arrange for an inspection. Homeowners are asked to stay off decks with deterioration.

Products Subject to Advisory

WeatherBest® decking and railing, sold nationwide at building products dealers after January 1, 2005

Veranda and ABTCo decking and railing, sold at The Home Depot after January 1, 2005 in the western U.S. - AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY, and TX (El Paso markets)

Weatherbest and Veranda products produced after November 2007 by the new owner are not included in the advisory.id="blue">

The web site actually has a video detailing some of the failures.


They want everyone with this stuff to register with them and state they will even pay for needed deck inspections. Could be some work in it for some of you in the affected States, get set up to do deck inspections for them - To contact by phone dial 1-888-325-1184
