Marie of Ocoee, Florida took her backyard to new heights with this beautiful Slate BamDeck® Composite Deck! With a humid tropical climate and lots of rainfall, Marie need durable, all weather decking that holds up the elements. Because BamDeck is 90% less absorbent of moisture than other leading composites, Marie made the smart choice for her lakeside patio!
“I ordered the Slate BamDeck from CaliBamboo a while back and I must say it still looks pretty good/like new after going through several years in the hot Florida sun as well as many storms. Not to mention family gatherings, pets, and all the above. My deck is still working hard for my family.”

I have installed a large deck using Cali bamboo decking – after a year I am finally nearing completion. I found out I am 4 double sided planks from finishing. I need 4 double sided gray planks 16 ft long. I order all of our decking from Cali Bamboo would they still have records of what we bought?
Thank you. Rick Raraigh 412-953-9392
While we no longer offer the double-sided wide slate, The single-sided product should be pretty similar. I see you worked with Mary in the past, would you like me to have her contact you?
Hi, we just installed our bamboo deck and love it. Thoughts on a good railing?
Living in southwest Oklahoma we have extreme weather from 105 degree heat to occasional torrential rain! I need a covered deck to protect from the elements. Do you have composit posts to support the roof over the deck?
Sorry Kathy, we only offer composite decking.
Lovely deck! What material did you use for the bannister railings and balusters (spindles)?
I’ve emailed the homeowner, I’ll let you know.
I would be very interested in the answer to the above question. Does Cali Bamboo recommend railing systems?
The homeowner has not yet responded. We are currently reviewing several railing systems that will work well with our decking, we should have some recommendations in a week or so. Stay tuned.
Walter – curious as we need posts and rails to look as good as your deck material.
We’ve paused the sale of the rail systems until our testing is complete to be compliant with building requirements in all states. Hopefully, they’ll be available shortly.
Better measurements for estimate:
Approximately 192 sq.ft. of bamboo decking materials.
Approximately 20 x 3 = 60 sq. ft.
Approximately 22 x 6 = 132 sq. ft.
Caps 56 linear feet
Lumber 36 linear feet
110 1 3/4″ x 3 5/6″ posts
is the railing system available yet?
