The Different Types of Composite Decking Materials
September 29 2016
Decking Technology


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

1. Wood Composite

TimberTech’s composite decking is made of plastic and wood fibers, making it more resistant to the elements than traditional wood. Composite boards are splinter-free, and upkeep is low stress; there’s no need to seal or stain your deck annually like with pressure treated wood. A balance of affordability and aesthetics, these practical, low-maintenance decks are a great option for a value-conscious buyer.

2. Capped Wood Composite

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’s composite core is made of plastic and wood fibers and coated with a protective cap on all four sides and every groove. 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. It’s a high-end look with added strength and a competitive price point. 

3. Capped Polymer: AZEK

With an enhanced real-wood look and strength backed by Alloy Armour Technology, TimberTech’s AZEK line of capped polymer decking materials are top of the line in quality and beauty. TimberTech’s team of engineers and designers have developed high-performance decking materials that withstand the test of time and nature with unparalleled beauty.
