Whether you are in the market for a deck replacement for your current set-up or building for the first time, low-maintenance composites may be an ideal choice. Low- maintenance composites and other man-made materials may be a bit more expensive upfront, but once you factor in annual deck-care costs, composites may save you money in the long run. Synthetic decking can produce absolutely stunning decks that need only regular cleaning to maintain their beauty. (Note: all synthetic materials will fade or change somewhat over time.)
"Our re-deck was more than we hoped for. We love the low maintenance and would recommend TimberTech® decking and Archadeck to anyone. Thank you!"
"We are extremely satisfied with our AZEK® deck. Your expertise and reputation really show."

It is important to remember that working with synthetic decking and low maintenance decking materials can be tricky. Each requires a different set of guidelines for installation. The shrinkage/expansion allowances, drainage needs and support-structure requirements can vary significantly from material to material. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, be forewarned that lumberyards have been known to provide outdated brochures (with outdated specifications).
Sadly, we’ve been called to perform a complete deck replacement or to fix composite decking problems for homeowners whose original contractor is unknown or out of business. When problems result from incorrect installation, the material manufacturer’s warranty is invalidated, and those homeowners are out of luck when it comes to recouping their costs from the manufacturer.
Fortunately, Archadeck uses synthetic materials on so many decks that our suppliers go out of their way to update us on every specification change. In fact, the leading manufacturers, TimberTech® and AZEK®, have awarded Archadeck the distinction of "certified installer."
In addition to installation differences, each synthetic material has its own set of pros and cons (too many to enumerate here). Your local Archadeck owner/operator can show you the materials that best suit your needs and discuss the merits of each, making it easy to pick the ideal decking material.
One of the most important factors to consider when deciding between a composite deck replacement and a traditional decking material is your time investment. While composites and other man-made materials may not require staining and sealing, they do require regular cleaning. It’s much less expensive than sealing, but it still requires some time and effort.
Working with Archadeck, a certified installer of both AZEK and TimberTech, to update your deck or create a new one, you know you will have a gorgeous outdoor living space for years to come.
