Originally hailing from Brazil, Eddy is a firefighter who purchased a major fixer-upper in a beautiful South Miami neighborhood for his family of four. His friends thought he was crazy for buying a house that had walls covered in mold and a collapsed roof, but he spent countless hours transforming the property into a gorgeous place his family now calls home. A true labor of love, Eddy’s latest project was putting in a new swimming pool, complete with a poolside deck made with Slate BamDeck® Composite Decking. Eddy loves how the deck looks, holds up to extreme weather, and stays cool to the touch during warm days in the Sunshine State. His next project: building a backyard halfpipe for skateboarding!
“I’ve been doing a lot of projects around the house, and I just finished the pool deck about six months ago. We always try to look for eco-friendly products, and we found Cali Bamboo online. They sent me some samples and we really liked it. The price was really affordable in comparison to everything else, and we love the look and the quality. It was pretty easy to install, too! The main reason we picked BamDeck is because in Miami it rains a lot and it’s extremely hot in the summer, so we wanted to get something durable that would last here. I have two kids that love playing in the pool and hanging out on the pool deck, and we don’t have to worry about splinters or anything. It stays cool in the summer, and we’re really, really happy with it!”- Eddy
