The dREamodel Team recently attended a product training seminar presented by Azek / Timbertech and hosted by Wasau Supply in Lakeville, MN.
Here is a brief rundown of the material we covered.
1) New decking categories:
Azek / Timbertech will be offering 3 categories of low maintenance decking material. All Timbertech / Azek products come with a 30-year transferable warranty.
-Timbertech Edge is a polyethylene composite with 3 capped sides. This product is available in 4 colors for the square profile. A scalloped profile will be available in 2 colors and will be priced to compete against cedar wood decking. The reliefing of the board profile will bring down the cost without affecting performance.
-Timbertech Pro is a polyethylene composite board that is encapsulated on all 4 sides. This line features a wide variety of colors, surface types and embossing patterns.
– Azek decking is a capped PVC product that is half as heavy as Timbertech boards. Azek offers 17 colors total across the Vintage, Arbor and Harvest collections. Azek Vintage will now offer a 50 year warranty against fade and stain. There are many benefits of this product, but the pricing is a bit higher than Timbertech.
2) Multiwidth decking for Azek Vintage
Azek Vintage non-grooved deck boards will now be available in 4”, 6”, and 8” widths in 6 colors. This will allow our builders and designers more flexibility in offering interesting and attractive flooring layouts.
3) Avoid “Dandruff” spots on your deck.
Azek / Timbertech cap stock material contains no wood fiber or organic filler. This prevents white spots to fade unevenly against the darker plastic material.
4) Fun Fact – The deck industry is a 7-billion-dollar industry. Low maintenance products such as Azek / Timbertech now make up over 30 percent of the market for deck projects.
5) Azek Impressions Rail
Azek now offers a bronze or black aluminum railing system. This system comes in preassembled panels and is manufactured locally in Eagan, MN.
