Are you tired of unexpected splinters, mold, and damaged finishing on your wood deck? While wood decks are beautiful, they do require maintenance. For those who are looking for a low maintenance alternative to wood decking, consider some composite decking options. Composite decking material is a man-made product made up of a mixture of recycled wood fibers and recycled plastic. The three most popular types of composite decking are fiberon vs. trex vs. azek. You can’t go wrong with any of these options, but it’s important to know about each of them.
Fiberon vs. Trex vs. Azek, Oh My!
If your home is lacking a great outdoor hangout spot, building a deck is a great idea. Before starting this project, read up on these composite decking options.
Fiberon decking boasts warm tones and grain patterns that are made to look like real wood. That way, you’re getting the classic beauty of wood, but the benefits of recycled materials that won’t hurt your feet or your wallet. With tons of options for colors, tones, and board types, you’re bound to find something you love from this eco-friendly wood alternative.
This is another brand of composite decking that is long lasting and easy to care for. With 18 different color options, there is a Trex look for everyone! Trex has a weather resistant shell on its boards, which serves to protect your deck from fading and staining. Trex also offers a large product line beyond just decking:
- Deck Railing
- Spiral Stairs
- Outdoor Lighting
- Outdoor Furniture
Azek decking is made from capped polymer and is known for its high performance protection by Alloy Armour Technology. This enhanced wood look only requires periodic cleaning and has a 30 year limited warranty against fading and staining, and a limited lifetime warranty against material defects, termite damage, and rot damage. Azek offers 27 colors and styles, and has board lengths of up to 20 feet. Azek also makes other products, such as trim and moulding, as seen in the photo.
