Composite/PVC Decking


Azek has the cortex option listed above which is impressive. Tiger claw is also making a hidden fastener for this type of product now as well. In my opinion Azek (old pro cell) is the product of choice right now.

The deck is done except for some trim work.
I posted pictures and some pros and con's on this website. If people can't get there then I can copy and paste the comments in here.

So how has your Quadra decking held up? We're in decking mode & looking for ideas.

The deck is holding up well, we just got a record snow fall of 37" for December with 10 days to go. I haven't shoveled my deck so we'll see if there are any issues in the spring. I don't expect any. The trim needs a slight adjustment every spring, and overall I think the look of the trim is so-so.

Thanks, D. We're leaning toward Timbertech XLM at this point, but are open to other options. Sure hope you have a snowblower!

No snow blower here! My kids (5 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old) like to come out play while I'm shoveling. I use a snowscoop to push the snow into piles and I build ramps on the piles to keep moving the snow. I don't have to bend over so no stress on the back and It's great exercise. I don't have to take up garage space with a snow blower.

Deck looks fine after our close to record snowfall winter.
