For homeowners in the market for a deck, there is a very (very!) tall-list and broad-range of decking material choices out there, some of which come-and-go depending on popularity and quality.

But product evaluation is ‘all-in-a-day’s-work’ for an experienced contractor like Archadeck.  So when it comes to a product-review, we can certainly help.

In our industry, building materials change, evolve, improve and innovate.

But one decking material in particular, has really gotten our attention over the past few years and that’s the TimberTech Earthwood Evolutions line.

There’s no doubt about it, TimberTech has been — and continues to be — a major industry player, especially following its recent merger with AZEK.  The brand consists of a full-array of wood-plastic composites, PVC decking and Earthwood Evolutions capped composite.

The entire TimberTech line is a crowd-pleaser, but for today, let’s look specifically at Evolutions and why we love it.

Technically speaking, Earthwood Evolutions is classified as ‘capped composite’ but sometimes called ‘capped polymer seal’ or ‘capstock’ decking.  It’s a hybrid of composites and vinyls.

Specifically, planks are fabricated with a core made from wood and plastic; however, the board is then fully wrapped in a PVC cap… and thus the labels with the term ‘cap’ were born.

Archadeck owners nationwide have designed and built hundreds of outdoor structures using TimberTech’s capped composite and the reviews are positive.  The consensus seems to be that this product is proving itself to be a great choice for our customers.

There are four subcategories of Earthwood Evolutions.

New to the line is ‘Legacy‘ (shown top) with a unique ‘handscraped’ hardwood appearance, available in Tigerwood, Mocha and Pecan.

Next is ‘Tropical’ and as its name implies, also resembles tropical hardwood and comes in Pacific Rose, Pacific Teak and Pacific Walnut.

Natural’ is distinctive with darker colors – Brick, Brownstone and Slate.

And one of our personal favorites is ‘Terrain’ in Brown Oak (shown above left), Silver Maple and new this year is Sandy Birch.

Evolutions is very sturdy and less pliable when compared to other lines; it’s resistant to dirt and grime with the PVC coating; it has a nice color selection emulating hardwoods; and is moderately prices when compared to solid PVC.

And most importantly, TimberTech fully endorses Earthwood Evolutions as evidenced by a 25 year no stain/no fade warranty along with their standard product warranty against board defects, splitting, cracking or bulging.

‘Evolutions’ certainly looks like a winner for now and in the future.  We give it two thumbs-up and five stars!

So if you’re thinking about adding a new deck, or replacing an old deck, TimberTech Evolutions might be an ideal choice with low maintenance, good looks and budget-friendly price.
