How to Choose Between TimberTech Lines 

You’ve decided to go with a composite decking product and have narrowed it down to TimberTech. So, now you need to decide between the different TimberTech lines, but which one is right for you and your project?

Three TimberTech Product Lines 

TimberTech organizes its decking products into three distinct lines: 

Choosing the right TimberTech line will depend on your specific project, personal preference, and budget.

TimberTech Azek

Did you know that Azek and TimberTech used to be separate companies? The two companies merged in 2012, which added a PVC deck option to TimberTech’s lineup.  

The four distinct advantages to the TimberTech Azek line: 

  1. PVC deck boards don’t have any organic material in the decking core or surface, making them resistant to water. Notably, Azek decking also has the added protection of their patented Alloy Armour Technology, which protects the surface from mold, mildew and rot. 
  1. Azek deck boards are 100% synthetic, making them extremely lightweight. When compared to standard composite decking, Azek is about 25-35% lighter.  
  1. TimberTech’s Azek line has better heat distribution. When compared to composites in similar colours, Azek tends to be cooler to the touch (and more comfortable on the feet!). 
  1. Azek is the only line that offers multi-width decking. It’s available in 3 widths for unique design options.

TimberTech Pro 

The TimberTech Pro line is a composite decking product with a core made from over 70% recycled material (wood and plastic). TimberTech built their recycling plant, diverting thousands of pounds of plastic from landfills into their products.

TimberTech Pro is the brand’s premium composite line: 

  1. The deck boards are capped on all four sides. Unlike some other composite decking products, even the groove is capped – which protects against moisture, mildew and rot.  
  1. Another thing that sets TimberTech’s composite line apart from competitors is the absolutely no wood fiber in the cap material. In addition, TimberTech developed a proprietary protective shell that helps prevent the surface from weathering and/or cracking.

TimberTech Edge 

Lastly, we have the TimberTech line, Edge. Similar to the Pro line, Edge is a composite decking material, and the core is made from a mixture of plastic and wood particles. Additionally, it features the same capped material – 100% synthetic – protecting it from water damage

There are two things that set TimberTech Edge apart from the Pro line: 

  1. Edge collection deck boards are only capped on three-sides. 
  1. The board bottoms are scalloped instead of solid. 

Because of these design choices, TimberTech Edge is at a lower price than the other two TimberTech lines. As a result, it has become a more budget-friendly option. 

Which TimberTech Line is Best? 

TimberTech makes three distinct lines so that you can choose the best product for your project and budget. First, if you’re looking for a PVC option – Azek is your best choice. Second, for people interested in an economical composite deck, TimberTech Edge is a great entry product. Lastly, for those who are looking for the longest-lasting composite deck, TimberTech Pro is the way to go.”
