This Is TimberTech
It's more than a deck. It's a better way to be. Building with TimberTech means the most technologically-advanced materials and the most design options for a more enjoyable, longer-lasting outdoor space.
SKOKIE, IL—AZEK® Building Products, a leader in the development of premium composite decking, is raising awareness alongside the North American Decking and Railing Association (NADRA) this May for Deck Safety Month. As summer approaches and people begin to enjoy their outdoor living spaces, it is the ideal time to address and fix any poorly maintained or unsafe decking structures.
“Decks are exposed to sun, rain, snow and extreme temperature changes throughout the seasons and the years,” said Julia Fitzgerald, chief marketing officer of AZEK Building Products. “May is a great time to remind everyone to inspect decks for safe outdoor entertaining. Safety is our number one priority so our decking is scientifically engineered to stand up to the elements and remain sturdy, reliable, and splinter free for years. Likewise, our railing is not only beautiful, it’s low-maintenance as it is sturdy."
Here are the top tips to ensure a safe deck:
“Homeowners who have an AZEK® or TimberTech® deck don’t have to worry about many of the traditional performance issues wood decks present,” said Fitzgerald. “Our products are protected with advanced polymer materials which make them resistant to mold, mildew and moisture damage. Also, our railing collections are certified to meet the International Building Code, and International Residential Code for load bearing and other universal safety considerations. Wood just can’t compete when it comes to long lasting safety and durability.”
AZEK Building Products manufactures home building materials under two divisions: TimberTech® and AZEK Exteriors®. TimberTech offers a premium portfolio of capped polymer and capped composite decking – as well as railing, porch, lighting and paver products – while AZEK Exteriors manufactures distinctly unique trim and moulding. Together the brands present homeowners, builders, architects, dealers and contractors with a comprehensive suite of first-rate products that are long lasting, sustainable alternatives to wood. AZEK is headquartered in Chicago, IL (with plants in OH and PA) and also owns Minneapolis-based Ultralox railing systems.
