Are all the white trellises/fences, etc. made of Azek, too? - Why did you choose Azek over painted Cedar? We live in the South and have termites, constant humidity/moisture and heat/sun. We want to build a pergola and architectural details on the house, but don't love the maintenance or wood. It seems no one here uses Azek and I'm not sure why. Expense? Availability? Does it look like wood? The pictures are beautiful of all the garden/trellis/arbor structures. Thank you!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
In our experience, Azek is a great product with the look and finish of finely painted wood. We have not seen it rot, crack or split. Our experience is, however, that it is prone to bending and warping if used alone in spans, especially in the heat, and should not be used as a structural member without additional support. Temperature variations can also cause the product to expand and shrink, so one must use restraint in designing large uninterrupted lengths. Overall, I think you will find that once you factor in the cost of lumber, assembly, prep, paint and maintenance, Azek, (or other cellular pvc equivalents) are a reasonable and effective alternative.

What is the climbing rose please and the green shrubs to the left, thanks
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I would guess that the rose is probably a climbing rose called New Dawn. It's often used to cover arbors like this.

Are you using Azek with a nominal thickness greater than 1 1/4"? - Beautiful work and we may need you! We're homeowners up the line in Fairfield, CT. We're struggling to find Azek that is thicker than what their catalogue indicates as a nominal 1.25" (their 2x trim boards). Are you using that thickness for your pergolas? It looks thicker than 1.25" for sure and seems the rafters should be 1.5" or more in thickness. Appreciate any insight into this.
