TimberTech offers two main types of composite decking: capped polymer and capped composite.  Your budget and needs for a deck will help you decide which product is the best fit.

Capped Composite

At TimberTech, our capped composite decking is made of up to 80% recycled plastic and wood fibers, making it more resistant to moisture and the elements than traditional wood. Capped composite boards, found in our TimberTech PRO and TimberTech EDGE decking lines, are splinter-free and upkeep is low stress; there’s no need to seal or stain your deck annually like with pressure-treated wood. With the look and feel of real lumber, capped composite decking offers the charm of traditional wood without the hassle of frequent maintenance.

Our TimberTech PRO line is coated with a protective cap on all four sides that flows into every groove. That cap contains Mold Guard Technology™ to add even more protection from mold and moisture damage. While most manufacturers cut corners and neglect the bottom of the deck board and groove, TimberTech goes the extra mile, making your deck strong enough to resist scratches, stains, and fading. A balance of affordability and aesthetics, these practical, low-maintenance decks are a great option for a value-conscious buyer.

Capped Polymer

With an enhanced real-wood look and added strength, the TimberTech AZEK line of capped polymer decking materials is top of the line in quality and beauty. Our team of engineers and designers have developed high-performance decking materials that withstand the test of time and nature with unparalleled beauty.

Each collection in the TimberTech AZEK decking line is backed by Alloy Armour Technology in the board's cap. This special formula protects the capped polymer boards from fading, staining, and scratching. Throw a backyard bash without worrying about chairs scraping and condiments staining your deck. It’s a high-end look with added strength and longevity.
