TimberTech Decking

Recently, TimberTech has updated its lineup of decking with renaming and offering its wide selection of surface textures and colors in a new way. The PVC version is no longer named AZEK. It is instead named Advanced PVC with Azek technology. When you visit it the web site and go to the Shop Decking page, you see many colors and styles. Then you can narrow the selection by choosing Composite or PVC and also by choosing the number of dollar signs. The samples I photographed a year ago I believe can be found in the current selection. I do not have photos of each version of decking. The new web site features an image (below) that shows their 5 different styles of surface texture and coloring.

Timbertech Prime Collection

TimberTech Prime Collection

With its scalloped profile reducing the composite content, this is the company's more economic version. It is categorized with a single $. I still have not determined what is the downside of scalloped profiles. If they are not as strong, they are still specced to be built 16" on center. This version is available in a number of colors. Shown above is Coconut Husk.

TimberTech Legacy Collection

TimberTech Legacy Collection

is a composite that is categorized with three $$$. The finish is "hand scraped. It has a 30-year fade and stain warranty. All of the TimberTech variations that I have seen, including the single $, are capped all the way around, which the industry calls "capped four sides." The example shown above is the "Mocha" color.

TimberTech Reserve Collection

TimberTech Reserve Collection

also rates three $$$. Shown here is the "Driftwood" color. It has a "reclaimed wood" look. The texture is "Cathedral Grain" and is "color-blended." It has a 30-year fade and stain warranty.

TimberTech Vintage Collection

TimberTech Vintage Collection - Advanced PVC

This one rates 4 $$$$. It is made from 60% recycled PVC, which would suggest that it is 40% new PVC. This is an accomplishment because recycling PVC is not as easy as recycling Polyethylene. One unique feature of the Vintage Collection is that it is available in three different widths: the standard 5.5" and also 3.5" and 7.25". This means you can have a much more interesting and natural looking deck. It has a 50-year fade and stain warranty.

In conclusion, if you are considering TimberTech, check out the web site and look at all of the color and texture variations to see which one appeals to you. Then see if it is wishing your budget. While PVC is more expensive, I am not convinced it is necessarily a better choice.
Like the other leading companies, TimberTech offers other deck and outdoor living products. I will try to cover that in future editions of this site.
