Decks should increase your home’s curb appeal and be a place where treasured memories are made — not a site of regular, costly maintenance. However, traditional wood decks will need just that: lots of exhausting upkeep over the years. The good news? That’s not the only option. All weather decking from TimberTech is an ideal choice for your outdoor living space due its durability and lasting beauty.
TimberTech® composite decking keeps the value of your deck high, and the weathering effects to a minimum — all with little maintenance from you.
What Is the Best Decking Material?
When it comes to choosing a decking material, there are several main categories, including composite decking, softwoods (pressure-treated lumber, pine, etc.), and hardwoods like Ipe.
Composite decking as a marketplace term refers to engineered decking materials including both capped polymer and capped composite boards.
Weathering: Composite vs Wood Decking
Our capped polymer and capped composite deck boards beat out their wood counterparts, no contest. Exposure to the elements has little effect on them compared to a wood deck, due to their engineered cap and sturdy core.
On the other hand, a traditional wood deck will inevitably deteriorate over time, even if you stick to a strict maintenance schedule characterized by sanding, sealing, and staining every other year.
Wood’s Weathering Woes
Weathering agents such as wind, rain, snow, UV rays, mold, and mildew can wreak havoc on a traditional wood deck and cause issues including:
- Discoloration / fading
- Insect damage
- Warping or cracking of the deck boards
Given all this, the best wood for an outdoor deck? It isn’t wood at all.
Your All Weather Decking Solution: TimberTech Composite Decking
TimberTech capped polymer and capped composite decks serve as your all weather decking solution because they can better withstand the weathering agents that will immediately begin to fade or erode a traditional wood deck.
Better Tech, Better Deck.™
Using innovative materials science, we developed 100% engineered, no-wood capping for our TimberTech AZEK®, TimberTech PRO®, and TimberTech EDGE® decking lines. These caps are built to better withstand harsh weather without compromising on appearance.
Don’t just take our word for it; see it for yourself. TimberTech composite decking goes through vigorous internal testing to ensure each product reaches the highest standards of weather resistance.
After six months of outdoor weathering, the TimberTech AZEK samples on the lower left and the lower middle, and the TimberTech PRO sample on the lower right, maintain an attractive appearance like their control samples above.
Each TimberTech decking line offers superior all weather decking performance thanks to unique, proprietary cap materials.
In fact, our TimberTech AZEK decking line boasts our most advanced engineered material technology without the use of wood particles, Alloy Armour Technology®, so your deck stays highly resistant to fading and weathering agents.
Six months of outdoor weathering can do a lot of damage to traditional wood. These samples (cedar, treated pine, and mahogany) are clearly faded from their original color (upper samples) after being exposed to the elements.
Traditional wood decks, including pressure-treated wood, weather quickly and noticeably. Even premium hardwoods like Ipe can’t stand up to the elements without being markedly affected.
