In July of 2017, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”), Plycem USA LLC
(“Plycem USA”) initiated a voluntary product recall for its Allura™ Decking and Fascia products due to
cracking and delamination that may occur under certain circumstances. We believe these issues are a result
of improper installation, where pre-drilling recommendations have not been followed, but we are still in
the process of conducting further testing.
All Allura™ Decking products, including Decking Fascia, are subject to this voluntary recall. These
products include the Allura™ Decking for direct screw application and for hidden fastener applications,
as well as all Allura 8” and 12” Decking Fascia products.
Allura™ Decking products were available throughout the U.S. However, most of the Allura™ Decking product
sales were made in the south and southwest parts of the U.S.
Allura™ Decking comes in a neutral sandy color and it looks similar to natural wood. Photos are available
on our web site at www.allurausa/deckingrecall.
If you bought Allura™ Decking, assume that your product may be affected; you should immediately contact
Plycem USA to discuss the next steps.
If you see any signs of cracking, chipping, or delamination, you should immediately cordon off that area
to prevent potential injury. Even if there are no signs of cracking, chipping, or delamination, it is
important that you also immediately contact Plycem USA at 1-844-452-6787 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., CST,
or visit www.allurausa.com/deckrecall to provide us with some initial information so that we can arrange
to inspect your deck. There is a Registration Form available on our web site for this, or if you place a
call to us at the number above we will collect the necessary information from you over the phone.
Some premature deterioration may occur within the decking as delamination and this might not be easy to
detect. Obvious deterioration will look like cracking or chipping. Deterioration may vary depending on
the exposure of the boards. Some boards may be unaffected at one end, but degraded on the other end.
Deterioration may cause the board to weaken and break, and there is a risk that someone may fall through
the broken decking and suffer injuries
This must be determined through inspection. Please call us as soon as possible to arrange for an inspection
Yes, please contact us and register by calling 1-844-452-6787. We want to arrange for an inspection as
soon as possible to avoid any potential injury.
The most important and first step is to arrange for an inspection. This can be done in one of two ways.
The preferred way is to go to www.allurausa.com/deckrecall and fill out the Registration Form that is
available there. You can also call 1-844-452-6787 for help and provide the information needed for the
Registration Form by telephone. After the Registration Form has been filled out, someone from Plycem USA
will contact you to make arrangements for an inspection.
After you have completed the Registration Form (either online or by telephone), an inspection of your
deck will be arranged by Plycem USA. Inspections will be scheduled in the order that completed
Registration Forms are received, however, priority will be given to decks that are currently exhibiting
signs of advanced deterioration or decks that appear to be a present safety hazard.
Plycem USA will arrange for the inspection. Their inspectors are trained to determine whether the
decking product presents a safety risk.
After you have completed the Registration Form, Plycem USA will arrange for an inspector to examine your
deck and determine if it presents a safety risk. If the results of the inspection indicate that your deck
is prematurely deteriorating, it will be remedied – at no cost to you. Plycem USA will arrange to have
the decking removed and then replaced at no cost to you.
Please contact Plycem USA 1-844-452-6787 to provide this information, and they will advise you.
Plycem USA and independent contractors retained by Plycem USA will work closely with homeowners to replace
affected decking with comparable material.
At the current time, inspections are expected to take place within about 21-28 days from the date that
Plycem USA receives your completed Registration Form. However, where safety issues exist, Plycem USA
will arrange for inspection more quickly.
Yes. Based on the information that Plycem USA receives from the completed Registration Forms, decks that
appear to present a current safety risk will have priority status for inspection and the necessary remediation.
Yes. Both Plycem USA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission want to make sure that buyers of
your home are aware if this voluntary recall so that if the inspection has not taken place before your
home is sold, we can communicate with the buyers to move forward with an inspection and any remediation
that may be needed.
