Benefits of Timbertech AZEK Decking
What is Timbertech AZEK Decking?
Manufactured as a TimberTech® division, Azek decking offers a composite deck replacement for wood with none of the challenges of a genuine timber board.
A cellular PVC (polyvinyl chloride) material made with weather-resistant technology and capped with a stain and scratch-resistant polymer shell, the board interiors are 100% recyclable for a timber alternative engineered to handle everything thrown at it.
Capped PVC decking is made from polyvinyl chloride (a type of plastic) that doesn’t contain any organic material, such as wood flour. Because there’s no organic material, PVC is engineered to avoid most of the pitfalls of timber decking — such as susceptibility to moisture — which leads to mould, mildew, rot, and, most noticeably, cupping or warping.
The board is capped with a stain and scratch-resistant polymer shell made from polyvinyl chloride. It is a rigid thermoplastic material and is strongly resistant to weathering, chemical and moisture-based rot and has strong ant-abrasive properties so that it won’t scratch or scuff easily. It makes the decking board ideally suited to the environmental conditions we experience in Australia.
Delivering a range of composite solutions, this brand provides completely wood-free finishes with textures and grains that have the rustic aesthetic of hardwood with the undeniable durability of composite materials.
A market leader in innovation and quality, these products are a durable composite choice that’s also stain and fade-resistant, meaning you spend less time cleaning and maintaining your new deck and more time enjoying it.
Put simply, this product looks like timber but is a whole lot stronger.
At Urban Arch Building, we have over 12 years of experience working in Sydney homes to deliver custom solutions that turn heads and instantly feel like an extension of your home.

How green is Azek decking?
TimberTech takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously. Their capped composite decking boards use up to 80% recycled material, while their capped polymer boards use up to 54% recycled PVC – with most materials falling into the hard-to-recycle category.
In 2021, the company stopped roughly 226,000 tonnes of waste and scrap from ending up in landfills. And, thanks to homeowners choosing composite boards over wood, more than 1 million trees have been spared the axe since 2015.
The company is conscious about doing the right thing for the planet.
Suppose you love the look of hardwood timber but don’t love the time spent sanding and staining timber (not to mention dealing with rot, warping boards, and termites). In that case, this composite alternative offers you the advantages of timber without the challenges that come with it.
With a 100% plastic core, this product has been engineered to hold its shape, colour, and strength for years. If you’re ready to say goodbye to weathering, warping, splintering, and fading stress, organise a FREE deck consultation to discover more.
How Much Does Timbertech AZEK Decking Cost?
Your deck is your sanctuary whether you’re hosting a BBQ with your mates or enjoying a glass of wine with your partner after a long week. This product is more expensive than timber alternatives but doesn’t have the continuing maintenance costs of a timber deck.
An Azek deck starts ar about $15,000 for a smaller deck. The final cost will depend on a number of factors, some of which are listed below.
But the initial cost doesn’t tell the whole story. However, the upfront costs can be 30% to 40% higher than a traditional timber hardwood deck like Spotted Gum; once you factor in the savings on maintenance (no sanding, staining, or sealing needed) and a longer lifespan, an Azek composite deck can pay for itself in a matter of years.
Throw in the damage-resistant qualities that prevent mould, mildew, scratches, and stains and you’ve got a board that’s able to handle everything from social events to parties and everyday wear-and-tear without needing ongoing repairs or replacements.

Frequently Asked Questions About Timbertech AZEK Decking in Sydney
Does an AZEK deck get hot in the sun?
While early composite decking products were more sensitive to heat, modern composite products like AZEK and more heat-resistant. AZEK products are cooler to the touch than many alternative deck board products. This means your deck won’t get hotter than timber deck products – the darker your decking colour, the hotter they may feel underfoot.
TimberTech AZEK® boards stay up to 30 degrees cooler* than competitive composite products – so kick off your shoes and enjoy your deck knowing that the tender little feet in your home won’t suffer.
How do you clean a Timbertech AZEK deck?
No matter how careful you are, it’s inevitable that spills and stains will occur. But a protective cap seals each board and simplifies cleaning the protective “cap” with a garden hose and mild household cleaner.
To clean AZEK decking products, simply hose or power wash (on medium setting) any loose dirt or debris. Moisture won’t penetrate your composite deck the same way it might with a timber product. For more stubborn stains, use a mild cleaner (isopropyl alcohol, glycerin, and propylene glycol) mixed with warm water.
Avoid solvent-based cleaners (e.g., acetone), which may damage your AZEK finish.
How much maintenance is required?
Not looking to spend time and money on deck upkeep? Then you’ll love the AZEK advantage. No yearly staining, sanding, or sealing is required as AZEK retains its beauty thanks to the protective capping and complete lack of timber that protects against everything Mother Nature can throw at it.
Timber decks must be regularly maintained every 12 months (more often if directly exposed to our harsh summer sun). If the maintenance isn’t kept up to date, you can look at replacing the deck after ten years or so. This is a costly and time-consuming exercise – think acid washing, sanding, and staining with oil.
A Timbertech Azek deck will last up to 25 years or more and deliver long-term savings that hardwood timber can’t match.
If you know that you intend to sell your home and move within that period, you know that you will have saved an awful lot of money on maintenance costs (probably enough to cover the stamp duty on your new home) as well as having an asset that will please the new owner of your home.
Is AZEK decking a durable decking choice?
It’s easy to assume all composite products are of equal strength as they’re protected by the surface “cap”. But it’s what’s inside that counts! While Trex composite products have a core comprising 95% recycled materials (inc. sawdust, ground-up plastic, and wood), AZEK is made entirely of PVC, which is not a natural material and cannot rot, warp, or become a termite’s dinner.
With a TimberTech deck, you won’t have to worry about the children or pets scratching your deck or the effects of our harsh summers leeching away the colour. The deck boards come with a rigid outer cap that is anti-abrasive and resistant to scratching, stains, and fading.
When you’re looking to upgrade your Sydney home with a long-lasting and reliable deck, AZEK has no competition.
Is Azek decking slippery when it gets wet?
Timbertech Azek decking is designed to have good slip resistance (P5), even when wet. However, like any outdoor surface, it can become slippery when water accumulates on the surface. To maintain optimal safety keeping the deck clean and free of debris that may contribute to slipperiness is essential.
Here are some tips to minimize slipperiness on any deck surface:
Regular Cleaning: Keep your deck clean by regularly removing leaves, dirt, and other debris. Use a broom, brush, or leaf blower to sweep off the surface. This helps prevent the buildup of organic material that can make the deck slippery.
Regular Maintenance: Periodically clean your deck with mild detergent and water to remove any stains or residue contributing to slipperiness. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and maintenance to ensure the longevity of your AZEK decking.
Adequate Drainage: Ensure proper drainage on your deck to prevent standing water. Water pooling on the surface can increase the risk of slipping. Check that your deck’s design and installation allow for adequate water runoff.
If you have specific concerns about slip resistance or safety, it’s recommended to consult with the manufacturer, AZEK, or a professional contractor who can provide personalized guidance based on your unique circumstances.
