When it comes to building a deck on your home you have three primary types of materials: treated lumber, cedar lumber, and composite decking. All three options have strengths and weaknesses that make them more or less ideal depending on the situation. Like most things, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and the correct selection of decking material comes down to several criteria. However, when a homeowner’s situation and goals match up with composite decking CoMo Premium Exteriors recommends using the brand TimberTech.
What is TimberTech Composite Decking?
Companies like TimberTech and Trex are some of the most popular manufacturers of composite decking in the market. After many years of working with different products, learning how they perform, and visiting their facilities, CoMo Premium Exteriors prefers using TimberTech out of the options available.
TimberTech manufacturers some of the most natural-looking composite deck boards on the market. They are available in a wide range of wood tones and, depending on which line of products you choose, they come with anywhere from a 25-year to 50-year Limited Fade & Stain Warranty. Their color options include Dark Hickory, Weathered Teak, English Walnut, French White Oak, Mahogany, Pecan, Espresso, Ashwood, and many more.
In addition, TimberTech manufacturers multi-width deck boards including 3.5”, 5.5”, and 7.25” which allows another option for homeowners to achieve unique looks that match their style preferences. All products come with matching trim and cap boards to ensure the final product looks finished and professional.
When it comes to installation, TimberTech has color-matched fasteners for hidden stainless steel clips. TimberTech AZEK boards are also 30 percent lighter than the competition’s composite decking, which lightens the load on your framing and makes installation easier.
Most Important Advantages to Composite Decks
So, what are the best reasons to consider composite materials over traditional cedar or treated wood?
- Longevity – Assuming proper workmanship during installation, composite decks can last you a quarter of a century easily.
- Durability – This will be the kind of deck that can support lots of foot traffic, heavy storms, and anything else you throw at it.
- Low Maintenance – Composite decking is resistant to termites, pests, and woodpeckers. It also does not require yearly re-staining like cedar and treated wood. For the most part, composite decking is maintenance-free.
- Beautiful Aesthetics – Both composite and cedar materials will cost you more than wood, but it’s a good investment in quality and elegance.
- Comfort –TimberTech’s AZEK line of boards stay up to 30 degrees cooler than competitive composite products.
