Best decking system (composite/PVC)?

K Ross

We're about to install a deck and screened in porch. Any recommendations on Trex, vs Timertech vs. Azek vs. other manufacturers?

    We have Timbertech. It is the flooring in our 3 season room and also an outside deck. Our outside deck gets full sun and has faded. It has scratched from our dogs nails. It is now approximately 10 years old. Whatever you choose- make sure you use the hidden clips to install. At the time we were having ours done, our contractor had never installed one before. Thank goodness I researched the product and found out about the clips or he would have screwed the boards down. :(
    Good luck- the composites have improved since ours was done- but all in all it's great not having to stain the deck every other year. On a side note-- I had the contractor put down a fine screening product to prevent bugs, etc from getting into the 3 season room. I'm so glad he did that.

    Fine screening product? Anything to keep the dogs from going through the screen?


    Thanks BTW. Very helpful!

    Deborah b, did you mean screen below the deck? great idea.
  • Deborah B.
    Yes, it went under the planks of the decking, just in the sunroom.
    Wish a had a better picture.

    We have Aztek. It’s now 5 years old. No warping, no fading, no scratches. One you power wash it, it looks brand new. We also did hidden fasteners. It gets super hot in the summer so you always have to have flip flops on or you’ll burn your feet. Overall, I love the deck. No complaints and would go composite again.

    Very helpful. How is temperature compared to a capped composite? The other criticism is that all composite decks are too hot.

    Just got this question from another user! Re. heat, check out this heat test a builder did, where our TimberTech Whitewash Cedar competed head-to-head with wood!
