Remember the ill-fated Azek truck hybrid? Yeah. This ain’t that. This is Azek decking.
Azek decking is the most popular of the PVC composite decking products.
It is also one of the most visually striking and beautiful of the composite decking options.
Wood decks have the natural beauty and feel that so many homeowners want, but they fade and rot over time. An Azek deck, on the other hand, can be a great low-maintenance alternative decking product.
How it’s made
The Azek deck board is a capped cellular PVC decking product. This means it is solid PVC on the inside and is capped with a proprietary alloy that resists fade, stain and scratch and prevents mold and mildew from creeping in.
Maintenance and Warranty
Azek offers an impressive 30 year warranty on material defects, fade and stain.
Maintenance is simply a mild soap and water periodically. It is resistant to fading and staining and never needs to be stained or sealed. Also, this decking won’t rot, scratch or splinter. Finally, it resists mold and mildew.
Although it takes more energy to make a composite board than to cut down a tree, it is made from recycled material. Azek keeps wood scraps and plastic out of landfills by recycling it into decking. And, since the product lasts so long, it will prevent the waste of tearing down the deck to replace in 10 years. Not too bad.
Azek decking comes in three lines:
- Harvest $$$ This is their most affordable collection in 5 color options
- Arbor $$$$ This is mid-priced collection with the most (6) vibrant color options
- Vintage $$$$$ Their flagship collection with more realistic mutli-color streaking and rustic texture in 3 color options
