About Azek Decking
Options: Azek, now that it is conjoined with TimberTech, consists of more decking styles, colors, and designs, “all to help you create the most amazing outdoor living space.” With its available resources and decking feature packages, Azek is among the top decking brands on the market. Azek decking price is also above average.
Recycled material: Azek has set out to replace the traditional deck materials, such as wood and metal, with a sturdy synthetic plastic that is more environmentally friendly.
As a whole, customers are pleased with using Azek, sharing how their decks still look new a year later–by which time cheap wood might start to appear weathered. Because of customer satisfaction and how easy it is to work with the material, even deck contractors express their appreciation Azek’s PVC.
Homeowners are assured foot safety (Azek’s materials cannot splinter), a limited lifetime warranty, and easy deck maintenance. For more on the warranty and maintenance, see “Deck Styles” and “Azek Decking Line” below.
See this link on how Azek PVC compares with wood and wood composite.
Azek Decking Styles
Azek has three specific decking styles to choose from: Vintage, Arbor, and Harvest. All three are comprised of capped polymer (recycled polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, which is a plastic that has the appearance of wood) with various grain options to offer a unique look for a homeowner’s choice deck. For customer satisfaction, Azek also pledges a 50-year fade and stain warranty.
Capped polymer is made to be long-lasting, and therefore resistant to staining, fading, scratching, and denting. It is also satisfactory in hot weather, as it dissipates the heat faster than wood or capped composite decking.

Azek Decking Line
Azek is a premium brand through TimberTech, which means it does not use the Good-Better-Best tiered quality options common with other leading brands. All its lines are considered in the “Best” category – and with the quality comes the higher cost of Azek decking.
Maintenance: PVC is relatively low maintenance, only requiring a periodic cleaning to retain the original beauty of the deck. For optimal cleaning, Azek recommends using a hose or power washer with its TimberTech DeckCleaner and a stiff, natural fiber brush. The cleaner should be used for spot cleaning, being thoroughly rinsed from each area before moving onto the next.

Achieving the Best Price for TimberTech AZEK Decks
In the case that you plan on having your deck professionally installed, here are a few helpful tips for achieving the most affordable price:
- Ask more than one deck contractor for a quote on the deck. Comparing quotes will allow you to navigate the best prices for the type of deck and deck features you are looking for.
- Tell the professional deck contractors that they are competing for work. This way, they will be less likely to take shortcuts or over-price you.
- Do not settle on the cheapest bidder without first looking into the company’s quality of work. The lowest quote may be tempting, but it could mean that the quality of the deck is lacking. In this case, the cheap price will feel nice at first, but the deck may not look up to your standards, and it may cost you more in the long run due to unforeseen issues.
Get the Most Value Out of Your Deck
Adding a deck to the house will increase the value of the house, presuming the deck is properly cared for. If the homeowner has the space and desire, building a deck can be in the homeowner’s best interest.
However, a word for the wise: while a deck does add value to the house, some may think that a deck addition just prior to selling the house will mean more profit on the sale. This is not the case.
The most recent national Cost to Value survey from Remodeling Magazine pegs the ROI of a composite deck at 69%. If you spend $20,000 on an Azek deck, you can expect the project to increase your home’s potential sale price by about $13,900. You’ll lose money if you sell the house immediately.
So, build a deck for your enjoyment. If you do sell your home at some future point, a good-looking TimberTech Azek deck will certainly be a selling point.
