AZEK® First to Offer Decking as Cladding for Residential Homes

Tags: deck, azek

Homeowners across America are gravitating towards a new trend, designing dramatic exterior accent walls. To achieve this effect, many select exotic and tropical woods. This may provide a unique “pop” of color, but wood cladding is not sustainable and is anything but low-maintenance.


At AZEK® Building Products, innovation is what propels us forward. We are thrilled to announce we are the first leading alternative decking manufacturer to be issued a code compliance research report for using its products in residential cladding applications. A vast portion of the builder, architect and design community already knows our high-performance, composite decking products are 100% smarter than wood.  Now we can provide yet another innovative application for homeowners looking to upgrade their curb appeal.
