This Old House Names TimberTech Gate Kits One of the 100 Best New Home Products of 2012

WILMINGTON, Ohio, Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TimberTech, a leading manufacturer of alternative decking materials, has been named to the prestigious This Old House "The TOH Top 100" list of the 100 best new home products of the year for its intuitive Gate Kit solution. The list will be published in the November/December issue of the magazine, on newsstands November 2. The TimberTech Gate Kit is a DIY-friendly product that is designed to work exclusively with TimberTech's RadianceRail system, providing all of the necessary hardware components to quickly construct and install a safe and functioning gate.

The editors of This Old House hunted high and low to find the most unique, helpful and coolest home products in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Building Products, Outdoor Living, Home Tech and Finishing Touches. Each winning product is also labeled with icons such as Money-Saver, Easy Upgrade, Perfect Solution, Eco-Friendly, Splurge or Made in the USA. Also included are editors' picks for the most useful apps in each category.

"The TOH Top 100 is the result of an exhaustive search for the most forward-thinking, relevant and necessary new home products out there," says Scott Omelianuk, editor of This Old House. "Through the winners, we saw several major trends emerge in homes, including bringing the outside in, simplified DIY and getting high-end looks for less. I am confident that these products will impress our readers as much as they did the editors of the magazine and will raise the bar for the industry."

TimberTech's innovative solution allows contractors or homeowners to utilize excess or additional railing materials such as balusters, top and bottom rails and support rails, to create a new gate.

"Gates can often be an after-thought when planning a deck and off-the-shelf options are limited," says Paul Bizzarri, vice president of innovation, TimberTech. "We are thrilled that This Old House has recognized the simplicity of this concept that allows homeowners to easily add a finishing touch to their deck in the same color and style of their existing railing."

The 2012 list marks the second annual "The TOH Top 100" and includes items for people who love houses new or old and are looking for the newest ways to fix them up. A complete list of the "TOH Top 100" can be found at
