Affordable Decking | Composite Decking vs. Wood

Composite decks are a much better value over time.

  • New tariffs and increased wood costs make AZEK capped polymer decking and TimberTech capped wood composite decking even more affordable

  • Over 10 years*, lumber, along with annual upkeep, costs more than our low-maintenance, high performance composite decking

  • Wood decks need to be replaced every 10 - 15 years**.  AZEK Building Products provides a more sustainable, wood deck alternative

  • Total decking costs = labor, substructure, deck boards, and maintenance
