Each of their lines is protected under limited residential warranties that leave you worry-free knowing your deck will always be taken care of. Over the past few years, TimberTech has partnered up with AZEK who is a very large building materials supplier to release a multi-width decking line.

Throughout this article we will touch on TimberTech and all the things you should know about this company.

We will also educate you on each line and their characteristics that make them stand out from the rest. What’s a deck without an ideal railing system? Don’t worry we will go over that too. If you are a homeowner on the hunt for a decking brand, this is your new best friend. By the end of this article you will be familiar with everything TimberTech. From their different lines, pricing, and designs- you will leave with a new decking design in mind.
Before we dive into the different kinds of decking and additional products that TimberTech carries, let’s focus on the newest addition, TimberTech AZEK.
An Introduction to AZEK TimberTech Building Products
AZEK Building Products is a building materials supplier that is separated into two divisions, TimberTech and AZEK Exteriors. A high-quality portfolio of composite decking, railing, porch, light, and paving materials is all enclosed under TimberTech – alongside AZEK, which focuses on one-of-a-kind trim and molding design. As partner brands, the two work together to collaborate with contractors, homeowners, architects, and designers to produce long-lasting and sustainable builds with quality products.
In the spirit of giving homeowners the chance to effectively create patterns and designs with the different sizes of boards, multiple color options will be offered. TimberTech stayed neutral when choosing the color pallet on the Vintage collection. They are offering tones of light and dark brown, as well as mixtures of grey all under the names of Cypress, Dark Hickory, Mahogany, Coastline, English Walnut, and Weathered Teak.
As a little bit of inspiration to customers, the Senior VP of Operations, Bobby Gentile, stated “These three widths can be used in almost any combination to create an extensive range of designs and patterns on deck. From a classic, all narrow or wide look, to geometrically-complex herringbone pattern, the only limits are the imagination of designers and homeowners.”
With a little bit of inspiring design, just about anything is possible when it comes to designing a deck for your own home or clients. Before this new collection, there were limitations on what could be done due to the ability to maneuver standard-sized boards. We believe that this collection is a new evolution in the building industry. It is allowing us to move away from the general decking layouts and create a new sense of style and design, giving homes a modern and edgy twist.
Now what does this Mean
for the Public?
TimberTech Cost Estimator
Now for the most important part of any deck build, the budgeting. Of course, going into the deck building process, you will probably have a budget in mind. The number one rule when setting a budget is to create a bigger budget than needed. This will not only help you stay within your budget, but it will help your stress levels stay down during this already stressful process. TimberTech offers an option on their website where you can calculate how much your materials are going to cost so there are no surprises when you go into buying the materials. The worst feeling is to walk into a store blindsided and not know what to expect. They also offer resources that compare the different options so you can decide which one is best for your design and your budget. Some of their descriptions include Composite Vs Wood and Capped Composite Vs Capped Polymer. They also provide a bar graph that compares the price of each line and the materials needed for installation.
If you are wanting to order supplies online and do your deck install yourself, you can request a free quote from their website, and they can get you as close of a quote as possible. Once you get the quote back, you can order materials, have it sent to you and start your deck renovation as soon as you get it! If you aren’t wanting to do it yourself and need to find a contractor, you can also find a supplier and a contractor closest to you on their website as well.
If you are shopping with us at RMFP for TimberTech products, you’re probably wondering what are your options with us as your supplier? Let’s talk about that.
As a leading composite decking supplier, we carry TimberTech decking in addition to other brands of composite decking from Fortress, Trex, Fiberon, and Evergrain. We sell TimberTech products from three of their exquisite lines Legacy, Tropical, and Terrain. Each line of decking is capped on all four sides, endures stains and scratches well, has vibrant wood grain, is low maintenance and is protected with a 25-year limited warranty. Let’s talk about each characteristic of each line of decking.
The colors offered in the Legacy Line are Ashwood, Mocha, Pecan, and Tigerwood. All of the colors are very natural, and earth toned, which gives it a very natural and raw look compared to some colors.
The Tropical line is a little more unique with more vibrant and deep colors of greys, reds, and browns in the color options of Amazon Mist, Caribbean Redwood, Antique Palm, and Antigua Gold.
Lastly, we have the Terrain line in which colors are very true to nature and make it feel as if you are on a hike through the mountain ranges with colors of Brown Oak, Rustic Elm, Sandy Birch, Silver Maple, and Stone Ash. These colors are much more neutral and lighter than the other two lines.
Every single one of these lines still holds to the characteristics of all TimberTech’s products by being durable and sustainable, able to withstand weather and having a resistance to mold, mildew, and moisture damage. They all also come with warranties that make replacing and repairing boards very easy.
At RMFP, we also offer TimberTech railing products that are made of 73% recycled material, which makes each one of their products very eco friendly. Just like the decking, their railing also has a 25-30 year warranty to cover any damage or repairs that need to be done within those 30 years. We carry a couple of different lines of their railing starting with Radiance Rail which comes in White, Black, Kona, Brownstone, Slate Gray and Mountain Cedar. With Radiance Rail, you have a sculpted top and a curved edge with a rail kit that provides everything you need for one straight or stair rail section. Sold separately, you also have the post covers, caps, and skirts for the railing. Lastly, we also have the hardware for easy installation to do it yourself if you choose to.
The next line of railing is the Premier Line which gives the look and feel of real wood, while being metal. It is available in 6’, 8’, and 10’ lengths with no painting, staining, or sealing required. It comes with a high durability rating.
TimberTech’s last line of railing is Evolution Rail, which has a very sleek design look coming in Classic Black, Brick, or Walnut Color. This line of railing allows you to choose a railing option that looks very chic, contemporary, and luxurious with a limited budget.
TimberTech is one of the most popular brands of decking across the nation. They offer several different options to allow their clients to customize their decks to the best of their ability while staying within their budget. From decking, railing, resources, and add on accessories to post caps, skirts, and lighting- TimberTech has it all. This is why we chose to partner with them in supplying their products at our specialty building materials lumber yard, RMFP. Thanks to TimberTech, we have built relationships with many contractors and homeowners that have used their products for their deck projects.
