Do You Know About TimberTech?
What is TimberTech?
TimberTech products are a relatively new line of composite outdoor construction materials that are durable, sustainable, and cost-effective. Here is a comparison between TimberTech products and more traditional materials.
TimberTech was created by the company AZEK, which has established multiple recycling facilities and manufacturies in the United States to produce and recycle TimberTech products. Watch the short video below to learn more about the production and recycling process.
How durable is it?
The materials and processes used to create these products result in great protection from the elements. TimberTech decks are safe from mold, mildew, and moisture damage! They're also engineered to resist stains, scratches, and fading. You won't have to think about replacing a TimberTech deck for decades to come.
What makes it sustainable?
TimberTech's committment to upcycling plastic and wood waste materials means that their products are made of 60-85% recycled plastic and wood waste. Because of this, TimberTech decking has a reduced impact on the environment compared to traditional wood decking.
Not only is the product Earth-friendly, but the process of creating it is too. According to TimberTech, their production facilities have closed-loop systems water that re-use 96%. They've already diverted 500+ million pounds of waste plastic and wood waste from landfills. TimberTech products are also designed to be fully recyclable at the end of their useful lifecycles.
Is it really cost-effective?
While the initial cost to build with TimberTech products is typically more expensive than wood, there’s no resurfacing or staining needed. These decks last for decades, which means that the long-term savings will continue to add up over time.
When registered contractors, like us, install TimberTech products following the manufacturer's instruction guides, you have the added protection of the Limited Replacement Labor Warranty in addition to the industry-leading warranties that are attached to the products themselves.
