We’ve just added several new deck design options to our arsenal: more wide-width deck boards in the TimberTech® AZEK® line, the four on-trend hues in the TimberTech® PRO® Reserve Collection, and our sleek Drink Rail.

Broaden Your Deck Design Options

See and feel the variety of TimberTech Multi-Width Decking to start dreaming up deck ideas that are anything but standard.

Benefits of Multi-Width Decking

Multi-Width Decking lets you keep your deck design options broad. You can introduce a sleek, finished feel to your deck by installing an attractive picture frame border, or you can choose to mix and match with narrow-width deck boards for an eclectic multi-width look. The options are endless – just like your creativity.

Benefits of Wide-Width Deck Boards

Wide-width deck boards offer a number of benefits, including fewer fasteners needed to complete the project – which can mean less time, labor, and overall cost. Plus, wide-width deck boards create an expansive feel throughout your deck, drawing the eye outward and capturing the feel of a sprawling outdoor escape.

2: Reach for the Rich Hues of the New Reserve Collection

The color, gloss, and grain pattern of your deck boards will also play a huge role in the overall feel of your deck design. To enhance our extensive portfolio of color-blended hues, we launched our new TimberTech PRO® Reserve Collection.

Our newest collection takes capped composite decking to the next level thanks to four vivid, elegant hues – including two contemporary grays. Inspired by reclaimed wood, the heavy wire-brushed, low-gloss finish emphasizes the timeless cathedral wood grain pattern.

Benefits of the Reserve Collection

  • Four-sided capping that protects the composite core.
  • A premium polymer cap that contains no wood particles to prevent mold and mildew.
  • Proprietary Mold Guard™ Technology to repel moisture damage.
  • Improved slip and fade resistance.
  • Industry-leading warranties, including a 30-Year Limited Warranty and a 30-Year Fade & Stain Limited Warranty (five years more than that of many competitors).

If you’re looking for even more deck design options, remember that we offer over 30 decking colors from which to choose. No matter your personal taste or the style of your home, we have a complementary color to enhance the style and atmosphere of your outdoor living space.

3: Raise a Glass to the Drink Rail in the Classic Composite Series

Most decks just don’t feel complete without an attractive railing. TimberTech railings work with the color and/or widths of your deck boards – as well as other design components – to capture an inviting look and feel and keep guests safe.

We offer railing for everyone, from the traditional- to the minimalist-minded, but one of our railing systems is the Classic Composite Series. The Classic Composite Series, a simple railing system with endless design options, combines four railing profiles into one. It uses a new Universal Rail for the bottom rail and fastener system that offers four top rail options: Premier Rail®, RadianceRail®, Trademark Rail™ , and a deck board for a party-ready Drink Rail option. The Drink Rail is designed for the homeowner who wants an impactful railing design that complements the deck as well as the home’s exterior.

Benefits of our Classic Composite Series

  • Clean lines for a polished look.
  • Nearly limitless infill options for total creative freedom.
  • A Universal Rail that adapts to our four sleek top rail options and is sold individually for total freedom to customize.
  • New Drink Rail uses a deck board as the top rail to unify the look and feel of the outdoor living space and deliver serious durability.
