The Highly Engineered AZEK Decking Advantage | AZEK Blog
There’s a reason so many homeowners are choosing materials other than wood to build their deck. PVC capped polymer is more durable, easier to maintain, and offers longer lasting aesthetics than wood. In addition to being easier to work with, engineered decking is also a better investment than traditional materials, requiring less upkeep and fewer repairs over time—and initial price points to fit a variety of budgets.
ENGINEERED TO PERFECTION
Unlike wood, engineered decking is a precisely crafted product. All of our AZEK decking is created by blending and heating quality raw materials to forge a plank with the desired characteristics. This is then shaped, cooled, embossed and cut to size. The result is a board that combines the beauty and texture of real wood with superior durability, workability and lasting, low-maintenance performance.
DECIDING ON DECKING
Choose the right decking can depend on many factors, including color, texture, material and price. Engineered decking falls into two main categories: PVC capped polymer and capped wood composite. AZEK is PVC capped polymer composite decking and includes only inorganic materials, which enables superior performance characteristics.
