TimberTech vs. Trex: Design

Our portfolio combines the performance of innovative composite decking with the eye-catching look of wire-brushed, reclaimed wood.

TimberTech vs. Trex: Performance

TimberTech AZEK Decking has no organic material in its core or surface, which can compromise performance. Our product’s synthetic nature makes it much less susceptible to damage from moisture, mold, and mildew compared to boards that include or expose wood fillers. And, with our TimberTech PRO Decking line, we never cut corners — we protect them with our 4-sided caps. The result: two premium decking lines that can outperform any competitor.

TimberTech vs. Trex: Warranty

The standard warranty in the composite decking segment is 25 years — but we’re so confident in our capped composite and capped polymer decks, we decided to raise the bar. Our innovative engineering processes and technology mean the most durable and advanced composite decking available. It only makes sense that we'd back that up with industry-leading warranties.

TimberTech vs. Trex: Installation

To us, “performance” starts before the products are on the home. When products are made well, the quality is noticeable from the time they arrive on the job site to long after they’re installed on the home. Here’s why this approach gives TimberTech AZEK and PRO decking lines the edge over the competition when it comes to installation.
