With a TimberTech deck, you avoid the costly, difficult maintenance work required one to two times per year — and sometimes every season — by a traditional wood deck, including:

Benefits of low maintenance decking

Compared to wood, TimberTech deck boards are designed to retain their rich hues for decades, not months.

Save Time & Money

Easy to Clean

Tired of lugging out your pressure washer to clean your wood deck, or paying to rent one? Low maintenance decking reviews confirm: TimberTech decking is straightforward to clean.



“It is good looking and easy to clean.” – Homeowner in Chicago, IL

Just how easy? Look at what goes into cleaning a traditional pressure-treated wood deck compared to a TimberTech capped composite or capped polymer deck.

Traditional Wood

Higher maintenance for traditional wood

To clean a traditional wood deck, you’ll need to:

  • Remove debris on the surface and in between each board.
  • Scrub the deck with a wood deck cleaner to remove mildew and mold.
  • For tough stains or persistent mildew, you may need to use a pressure washer.

Then, even more work is ahead of you since you must sand the deck and apply wood deck stain and/or sealer to protect all your hard work.

TimberTech Composite Decking

Your TimberTech deck requires a periodic clean and rinse with TimberTech DeckCleaner™.

Really, that’s it.

The reason TimberTech decking is so easy to clean? It all comes down to our superior materials.

Low maintenance decking reviews for improved safety

For a deck, “safety” often conjures up thoughts of structural integrity. Cracked or splintered deck boards and protruding nails are all common concerns with a traditional wood deck. Not to mention an uncomfortable foot feel if the surface of your deck is in full sun.

With superior deck materials like TimberTech decking, those concerns won’t apply to you, thanks to:

“I no longer have to spend time fixing our old wood deck. No more worries about nails popping out and my children cutting their feet.” – Homeowner in Minneapolis, MN

*Although TimberTech AZEK decking products are cooler to the touch than many other deck board products, all decking products will get hot in the sun. Additionally, the darker the decking color, the hotter it will feel. For hotter climates, consider choosing a lighter color.

Peace of Mind Means More Time Spent Outside
