Homeowners, guests, and home buyers alike all enjoy the entertainment and relaxation possibilities offered by a well-designed deck. And of course, a lovely new porch boosts curb appeal and makes visitors feel welcome. So, if your deck and porch are lacking or you need more outdoor living space, a gorgeous replacement, from Siding & Windows Group, might be in order—especially when you choose the right material to build with.
Enter composite decking—which delivers attractive, lasting results to boost your home’s value and outdoor enjoyment.
What Is Composite Decking?
Composite decking is a beautiful, durable, and popular alternative to natural wood. With a unique design and engineering behind it, composite decking is superbly resistant to moisture, fading, and other effects of weather, wear and tear.
When homeowners choose composite decking for their home decks and porch installations, they turn to industry-leading TimberTech AZEK® deck materials.
TimberTech Composite vs. Wood Decking Materials
There are many reasons homeowners choose TimberTech instead of wood for their deck replacements and porch installations.
- Beauty — TimberTech decks and porches look as stunning as wood, and successfully mimic wood grains and colors for pleasing results.
- Low maintenance — Wood requires high maintenance—which costs homeowners time and money yearly. TimberTech is low maintenance—giving you more time to relax and enjoy your deck.
- Lasting design — Engineered to last, TimberTech composite decking eliminates the most annoying problems that come with natural wood. There’s no cracking, graying, fading, splitting, splintering, cupping, or rotting to deal with.
Benefits of Investing in TimberTech Deck or Porch Installation
Adding an elegant deck or porch to your home is a fabulous upgrade that brings years of enjoyment. Consider these advantages:
1. Long-Lasting Performance
Composite decking offers the beautiful appearance of wood, but is designed to last much longer than natural wood does. Its unique makeup yields years of reliable performance. TimberTech decks last 30 years or more, on average, while wood lasts 10-20 years, depending on its exposure to the weather.
You’ll love the long-term enjoyment your TimberTech deck replacement will give you, your family and guests.
2. Easy Maintenance
Traditional wood decking may look attractive at first glance, but homeowners must invest a lot of work to keep it in top shape. Every few years, wood needs to be resealed to help it resist moisture. It needs power-washing at least once a year to remove dirt, pollen, mold and mildew. To keep its color, you’ll have to re-stain it.
Not so with TimberTech deck replacement materials! TimberTech composite decking never needs to be sanded, re-stained, or resealed. And a simple rinse with a hose and TimberTech deck cleaner makes it simple to clean away dust and dirt.
3. Resistance to the Elements
One of the main reasons for deck replacement is that the homeowner’s old deck has worn down due to exposure to the elements. Chicago’s wet weather can cause wood to rot, warp and splinter, but TimberTech decks are specially engineered to resist:
4. Gorgeous Aesthetics
Wood’s tendency to fade, stain, mildew and wear down can make its appearance dull and aged as time passes. But TimberTech composite decks and porches retain their beautiful appearance, looking good as new for years.
And it comes in numerous colors and looks to give you the design of your dreams. You’ll always be proud of the attractive, eye-catching style of your composite decking.
Sustainability is an important goal for many homeowners, and it’s a priority for TimberTech too. TimberTech’s composite decking is made with up to 80% recycled materials—including 100% recycled wood and plastic. The company’s environmentally friendly commitment has saved more than a million trees since 2015 and diverted millions of pounds of waste and scraps from landfills.
6. Excellent Return on Investment
When you want your deck installation or porch installation to yield lasting value, composite decking is a smart investment. Its years of performance and low-maintenance nature save homeowners on the need to repair and replace it as often as wood requires. Over time, its durability and beauty more than make up for the initial installment costs.
7. Great Warranty
TimberTech is so confident in the reliability and lasting performance of its deck and porch installation materials that the company offers superb, industry-leading warranties to back it up. TimberTech AZEK decking carries an impressive Lifetime Limited Warranty. And the company also offers a 50-Year Limited Fade & Stain Warranty—giving you peace of mind your deck or porch will look fabulous for years to come.
