TimberTech Story: Bre Bertolini

"We Heart TimberTech" wordmark logo

Welcome to Bre Bertolini’s Modern Outdoor Living Space

When the creative mind behind Brepurposed Design began imagining a backyard refresh for her family’s Youngstown, Ohio home, her search for low-maintenance and high-style options quickly led her to TimberTech.

Meet Bre [@brepurposed]

Self-described “interior decorator, blogger, and lover of all things DIY,” Bre Bertolini is no stranger to home makeovers. The mother of three has been on a journey with her husband, Dan, as they renovate their home — both interior and exterior — to suit their modern tastes and their family’s needs.

Their most recent renovation? A gorgeous, sprawling TimberTech deck the whole family can enjoy. Read the full story of her deck project on her blog.

It looks exactly like real wood and I don’t have to maintain it. Amazing!

Hear Why Bre Chose TimberTech

Bre knew she wanted an outdoor living space that served as a natural extension to her home’s interior — and required minimal maintenance. Plus, it was important that the deck design also complement her striking home exterior. Then, there was the matter of safety and performance. She wanted to rest easy knowing her kids had a splinter-free, durable, long-lasting space to spend time outdoors.

The answer? TimberTech capped polymer decking in Weathered Teak® paired with the Classic Composite Series Railing with Contemporary Top Rail in Classic Black.

The high-performance decking and railing deliver the quality and peace of mind Bre needed. And the realistic wood grain and color of the boards gave her the look and feel she wanted.

The final result? A contemporary, contrast-rich palette with sun-washed Weathered Teak boards for a warm, inviting foundation and sleek black railing for a distinctive, darker tone that complements her home’s exterior color.

High-style design with low-maintenance performance means Bre can spend her time enjoying her space instead of worrying about maintaining it.

The Decking: Weathered Teak

Bre chose Weathered Teak wide-width capped polymer decking from the TimberTech AZEK® Vintage Collection® for its warm, light color and premium hardwood looks that perfectly complemented her interior flooring. The splinter-free, cooler-to-the-touch surface means she doesn’t have to worry about her kids running around barefoot in the summer.

The Railing: Classic Composite Series

For a modern perimeter, Bre chose the Classic Composite Series Railing with Contemporary Top Rail in Classic Black, with an industrial-chic stainless steel cable rail infill. She loves the sleek, streamlined design as well as the modern, see-through railing that allows her clear sightlines of her kids playing in the yard.
