Azek PVC Decking
Pressure Treated Decking
Family owned and operated. We offer all of the top choices in decking materials from standard pressure treated decking, 2x6 Prime, to top quality composite decking from Azek, Timbertech, and Trex. We also carry the best quality Brazillian Hardwoods like Ipe, Tigerwood, Cumaru, and Garapa. No deck builder can say that they have installed every type of deck but there's a good chance no matter what type of deck you looking at we can help.
Pressure Treated Pine:
Pressure treated pine comes in dozens of Brands, grades, processes, and sizes but to make it easy, pressure treated pine is typically rated as Standard or Premium Grade in either 5/4x6 or 2x6. 2x6 is also available as a "Prime" grade. Standard 5/4 is what most people have now on their deck. 2x6 PT will reduce cracks and cupping. All pressure treated pine should be screwed down. KDAT is a process ( kiln dried after treatment ) KDAT is simply pressure treated pine that has been treated and then dried so that it is ready to stain without having to wait. KDAT can be bought in any grade of decking from #2 Standard to the top of line C grade such as Yellawood Super Select that is not available in a "wet board". KDAT is already dried and ready to stain but it is still just pressure treated pine and will still warp and/or crack as it expands and contracts outside. We typically prefer to install KDAT in screen porches where we can protect it from weather until after it is stained or in vertical applications like screen walls and railings.
There are several types of Hardwood decking from all around the world but in this market the most popular are from Brazil. Whether you are interested in Ipe (E-pay), Tigerwood, Cumaru, or Garapa the most important thing to understand is that hardwood decking requires no chemical preservatives to keep the wood from decay. Harwood decks do have to be protected from UV light. Hardwood oils are designed to seal the wood and enhance the grain and require yearly maintenance or they will turn grey. They are often better used under cover.
Composite and PVC :
By far the most popular decking choice today is a composite decking. Composite decking is 50% pvc and 50% wood fiber. Not all composites are the same. In order to get a composite that is stain and fade resistance you have to have a "capped composite" that has a hard polymer shell like Trex or Timbertech. Composites are typically installed with hidden fasteners for a better look. Azek is a pure PVC decking without the use of fibers and carries the longest warranty of all decking. All composite decks should be installed by a manufacturer Authorized Installer to preserve the warranties as improper installations will void warranties.
