Name the New Colour Contest Results

Last week, Duradek put the shout-out to deck builders and homeowners alike to submit their best idea for naming Duradek’s latest color of Ultra Cork vinyl, and we’d like to thank everybody for their great submissions. We received an excellent response of entries and many great ideas, but there can only be one winner. And the winner is…..

The New Duradek Cork Colour!



While several participants suggested this name (great minds!), the prize goes to the first person to suggest Graphite on our Facebook page, Katherine Kelly Casey from Calgary, AB. Congratulations, Katherine!

The existing color line-up in the Ultra Cork line of vinyl is Natural, Espresso and Macchiato, and with the addition of Graphite, the Ultra Cork line of waterproof vinyl has a well-rounded selection of shades to complement nearly any exterior design scheme.

Some Notable Entries:

While the name GRAPHITE was the overwhelming winner, we did receive a lot of great ideas. Here are a few of the suggestions…

Several people were inspired by the elements of the earth with suggestions like:

  • Midnight Steel
  • Gunmetal Grey
  • Titanium
  • Charcoal

Others took a more sci-fi approach with ideas like:

  • Dark Side of the Moon
  • Lunar Marble
  • Lava Moonscape

Then there were those that stayed with the ‘coffee’ theme of the existing colors with suggestions such as:

  • Americano
  • Affogatto
  • Earl Grey

And the witty bunch who came up with word-play suggestions like:

  • 50 Shades (of Grey)
  • Gandalf the Grey
  • Grey Matter

Once again, thanks to everyone who participated and we will be sure to keep you informed on when the new Duradek Ultra Cork Graphite is available.
