When a homeowner decides on their project design, the next big decision is material choice.  And beyond the architectural plan, material selection will heavily influence price, style, and maintenance.

So, today let’s take another look at TimberTech decking.

Most experienced deck contractors are willing and able to build with any material you want: pressure treated lumber, cedar, hardwood, composite or synthetic.  The fact-of-the-matter is this — there ARE lots of fantastic options.  And with the sheer number of products in the marketplace today, homeowners want guidance.

Alas, there is never a one-size-fits-all-perfect-choice but there IS a best choice for you!

Depending on your lifestyle, budget and your long-term plans, one decking product might be a smarter choice than another.  For instance…

  • Will you be moving in the near future?  If so, then a pressure treated or cedar wood deck will bring the highest return-on-your-investment when you sell your home.
  • Want to keep outdoor maintenance to a minimum?  Then a composite, capped composite or vinyl product might be the ticket.
  • Is the idea of an all-natural wood deck most appealing for its style or sustainability?  Or how about a man-made decking product that emulates the look of ‘real’ wood?

So when it comes to the best decking selection, it totally depends on your individual circumstances, your budget and your style preference.  These three TimberTech deck pictures below show different colors, price-points and styles.

But let’s get back to TimberTech.

Say your product preference IS low-maintenance decking instead of wood.  Well, then TimberTech can be a fantastic option for three reasons:  color, price-point and warranty.

Color – No matter your style, TimberTech offers a large selection of colors and shades — grays, beiges, browns, reds.  Then pick a railing.  Match the decking color or opt for a contrasting rail to achieve a particular and precise aesthetic.

Casual?  Contemporary?  Classic or Coastal?

Elegant?  Eclectic?  Traditional?  Tropical?  Or how about rustic with that ‘real-wood’ vibe?  It’s all possible.

Price Point – When it comes to decking, TimberTech offers low-maintenance products at a variety of prices.  From composites such as TwinFinish to their capped-composite line called Earthwood Evolutions (Terrain, Tropical and Legacy), homeowners will find a fit for their pocketbook.  And if you’re interested in a high-end PVC product, TimberTech now offers this option under the AZEK label ever since the two companies merged.

Warranty – TimberTech products have an upscale design but equally important, the products are built to last.  And TimberTech has proven their long term obligation to homeowners with a meaningful warranty.  We can speak from first-hand experience.  In those very few cases where their product wasn’t up to par, TimberTech replaced the material; thus, we’ve re-decked a project or two over the years.  In the end, everyone was happy.
