Get To Know Your Deck: Why We Build With TimberTech Decking

Your TimberTech deck will last as long as the memories you make on it.

Think about your new deck, standing at the railing, looking out over the backyard as the kids play. You’re at the built-in grill, serving up orders from friends and family as the stars come out.

With 100 years of supporting the community as J.F. Johnson Lumber Company, we know well the joys of a finished deck. What’s just as important for us, though, is everything that goes into making your deck one that will last.

In this blog, we frequently talk about design trends, deck materials, finishes, and more. What all of those depend on, though, is a sturdy, reliable foundation. When it comes to composite decking materials, one of our absolute favorite providers is TimberTech Decking.

We’ve had the pleasure of being a partner of theirs as they’ve grown over the years. Their current product line is impressive, as they offer three high-quality composite/poly decking options. Called AZEK, PRO, and EDGE, each of these lines has its own style, qualities, and performance. 

If you’re looking to redo your deck or build a new deck in the near future, you’ll want to know all about how these materials can fit into your plans.

The first thing to know about TimberTech’s premium capped polymer decking material AZEK is how strongly TimberTech supports it. With both a 50-year-limited fade and stain warranty as well as a lifetime limited warranty, this is a deck that will last. As an industry best offer that’s backed 100% by TimberTech, this deck is a great choice.

The AZEK line is also free of all wood particles. Made of advanced synthetic materials, AZEK products are impervious to moisture, lightweight, and are cool to the touch even in hot summer months.

Now, let’s get to the looks. The AZEK line comes in:

  • Vintage
    • near-real natural hardwood look
    • low-gloss, wire-brushed finish
    • subtle highlights and lowlights
  • Harvest
    • monochromatic
    • cathedral grain pattern


The PRO line is a handsome composite that mimics natural wood for a warm, inviting look that’s durable and weather-resistant. This is possible thanks to a decking material made from a 4-sided capped composite. 

This wood/poly composite is covered on all four sides by a fully synthetic cap, providing it with enhanced surface protection. Mold Guard technology is then used to cover the boards. As one of the most mold-resistant decking materials available, your deck stays protected for longer. Then TimberTech backs it with a 30-year limited fade and stain warranty to give you peace of mind for years.

Beyond its great performance, the PRO line also comes in a dynamic range of styles, including: 

  • Legacy
    • complex blend of natural colors
    • hand-scraped finish
    • dramatic highlights and lowlights
  • Reserve
    • reclaimed wood look
    • wire brushed and cathedral-grain pattern
    • heavy to moderate blending
  • Terrain
    • complex, rugged wood grain pattern
    • monochromatic or moderate to heavy blending


For homeowners looking to upgrade their wood decks to a longer-lasting composite deck, TimberTech’s EDGE decking is a suitable option. Featuring 3-sided cap composite decking and superior surface protection from moisture, EDGE is a low-maintenance, high-quality upgrade. 

What’s more, all of TimberTech’s EDGE products come with a 25-year fade and stain limited warranty.

More than just an upgrade in performance, the EDGE line also holds its own in style, too, with the following products:

  • Premier
    • straight-grain pattern
    • monochromatic
    • full board
  • Prime +
    • scalloped boards
    • straight-grain pattern
    • moderate to heavy blending

TimberTech Decking Sustainability

One of the common arguments in favor of all-wood decks is that they are more sustainable. More and more, though, composite decking can offer a comparable sustainability. In fact, TimberTech prides themselves on keeping sustainability at their core.

With composite deck boards made with up to 80% recycled materials, and capped polymer boards at 54%, TimberTech is increasing the recycled material in their products. They do this by repurposing materials from their production online, investing in recycling plants, and more.

Currently, they are able to reuse 98% of their internal waste in producing new composite and polymer boards. That achievement has saved over 1 million trees from being cut down since 2015, with a production cycle that’s always improving.
