Timbertech decking is a very popular decking option.
Wood decks have the natural beauty and feel that so many homeowners want, but they fade and rot over time. Fortunately, Timbertech deck can be a great low-maintenance alternative decking product.
How it’s made
Most TimberTech decking is “capped composite”. This is because the core contains 95% recycled sawdust and plastics that is wrapped in a hard protective shell. Amazingly, no trees are cut down to make this product. They only use wood scrap and recycled plastic and then combine it with their secret sauce.
Maintenance and Warranty
Timbertech offers a 25-30 year warranty on material defects, fade and stain.
You can also easily maintain this decking. Simply wash it with a mild soap and water periodically. It also resists fading and staining and never needs to be stained or sealed. It won’t rot, scratch or splinter, and 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. Also, TimberTech 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.
