What is AZEK Composite Decking?
There seems to be a lot of confusion about decking products on the market today. While AZEK performs beautifully as a wood deck alternative, it is not considered composite decking. AZEK decking is made from polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, which is the same material used in vinyl siding. It's known for exceptional strength and durability. Since it doesn't contain any wood or wood by-products, AZEK decking does not absorb moisture which makes it an ideal low-maintenance option. As an experienced AZEK deck designer, Woodland deck builders have extensive expertise in working with AZEK, the pioneer in solid PVC decking.
Advantages of AZEK Decking
- Durability - AZEK decking will not rot, mold, warp or splinter.
- Low Maintenance - It's stain and fade resistant, and there's never a need for sanding, sealing, staining, or painting.
- Many Options Available - AZEK decking comes in a wide range of colors and wood grain options.
- Longest Life expectancy - AZEK offers an industry-leading 30-year warranty.
Disadvantages of AZEK Decking
- Cost - Solid PVC decking is the most expensive synthetic option on the market, but the long life and low maintenance requirements of an AZEK deck can make it an economical decision in the long run.
There are a wide variety of AZEK products available today. In addition to decking, AZEK also offers high-end railings, trim, molding, pavers, and lighting. And if you're going for a uniquely distinctive look, an AZEK pergola or canopy might be just the thing to add a striking architectural element to your landscaping, patio, or garden. At Woodland, we can work with you to combine just the right the ingredients to create the perfect AZEK deck to suit your outdoor living space, lifestyle, and budget.
