With a stellar reputation for designing and building exceptional quality custom outdoor living spaces since 1980, based on recent accolades, it should come as no surprise that here in Columbus, Ohio, Archadeck recommends low maintenance Advanced PVC Decking materials from TimberTech by AZEK.
Supporting our preference of easy to care for, low maintenance deck, porch, and screened porch materials, a recent honor bestowed on TimberTech by Good Housekeeping recognizes this attribute.
Famous for the bold, character-rich texture of popular hardwoods like white oak and walnut without the rigorous maintenance of wood, this capped polymer decking features proprietary materials technology that delivers sophisticated, real wood aesthetics you’ll never have to sand, stain, or seal.
TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking Is Honored By Good Housekeeping With Its Sustainable Innovation Award
TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking has been recognized for innovative sustainability from one of the country’s most trusted sources. The Good Housekeeping 2023 Sustainable Innovation Award was given to the TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking, specifically the Landmark Collection, known for its bold hardwood appearance and dramatic crosscut grain texture.
TimberTech Advanced PVC is one of very few decking products that are made without any organic material whatsoever. The lack of any component – such as wood fibers – that could potentially degrade in an outdoor, open-to-the-weather environment is part of what makes our Advanced PVC so durable.
Proprietary technology also contributes to comfort and protection, as the boards are cooler to the touch compared to other composite boards, and 100% splinter-free. The line also carries a Class A Fire Rating, a WUI designation, or both. That means that a deck built with Advanced PVC from TimberTech is a better choice in fire zones.
TimberTech’s manufacturer, AZEK, was carefully reviewed and the products received thorough testing in the Good Housekeeping labs. They first documented AZEK’s energy, water, and waste reduction; use of recycled material and future product recyclability; and overall corporate efforts to reduce carbon, waste, and more. Then, they put the products to the test for functionality, durability, and in TimberTech’s case, beauty.
TimberTech performed well in both corporate responsibility and product performance. With approximately 60% recycled content –including scrap vinyl siding and PVC pipes – the decking’s sustainability credentials were strong.
TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking Checks All The Boxes Of Carefree Outdoor Living
With features like hidden fasteners and interlocking components that help create a seamless and clean look, TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking is made PVC (polyvinyl chloride), a synthetic material known for its strength and resistance to moisture, mold, and rot. The PVC core provides exceptional durability and longevity, making it a most suitable choice for outdoor decking.
TimberTech Advanced PVC Decking is as low maintenance as you can get, requiring minimal upkeep compared to traditional wood decking. It never needs staining, sealing, or painting and is resistant to stains and fading.
With a variety of surface textures that mimic the look and texture of real wood, it comes in a wide selection of colors that homeowners love.
Why Is Being Recognized By Good Housekeeping Significant?
Good Housekeeping is a popular American lifestyle magazine that has a long and storied history.
The magazine was founded in May 1885 during a time when the women's rights movement was gaining momentum, and it aimed to provide practical advice and information to women about running their households.
Good Housekeeping Magazine quickly gained a reputation for its focus on family and home life, offering articles on cooking, cleaning, childcare, and other domestic topics. The publication also included fiction, fashion, and other content of interest to women.
In 1900, it reached a milestone as the magazine began a quality certification innovation as part of its brand – the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, a product testing and endorsement program that became a well-known symbol of quality and reliability.
This seal was awarded to products that passed rigorous testing by the Good Housekeeping Institute, a research and product evaluation center affiliated with the magazine.
Good Housekeeping remains a popular publication to this day, offering a mix of lifestyle and home-related content, and it continues to emphasize its commitment to providing readers with trusted advice and information. It has also expanded its reach through various digital platforms, including its Website and social media channels, in addition to the renowned print magazine.
