Materials Guide: For Decks, Railings, Screened-In Rooms, Sunrooms and Arbors
It wasn't long ago that the only choice for an outdoor living space project was wood, which came in perhaps two or
three species. However, thanks to an explosion of composite lumbers, plastic decking materials
and exotic hardwood imports, there's now a dizzying array of decking materials available. Sweetwater Deck Inc.
works with a wide variety of materials, colors and finishes. The choice is yours and our recommendations will
help you choose the right materials for your project.
- Decks & Railings:
- Pressure Treated Wood
- Exotic Hardwoods
- Tiger wood
- Ipe or Ironwood
PureWoodTM Thermally Modified Wood Decking begins as natural, renewable lumber. Then it
undergoes a unique heat-based, chemical-free process that changes compounds in the wood.
PureWoodTM is further enhanced with a factory-applied, premium sealant specifically designed
for thermally modified wood. This product is considered "green" because of the lack of chemical treatments.
Composite lumbers are products of wood-reinforced plastic usually made with recycled products and itself is recyclable.
Composite lumber doesn't have the load-bearing
strength of wood and cannot be used as joists or structural members, although some
companies offer stronger glass-reinforced products. At present, composite products retail for
more than the cost of real wood, but have lower life-cycle costs when the expense
of cleaning, painting, staining and preserving wood are figured into the equation. Some of the name brnad products
used by Sweetwater Deck Inc. include:
- Full Polymer
AZEK Deck, made of cellular pvc (polyvinyl chloride), is engineered with proprietary ProcellTM technology
and AZEK requires little maintenance to retain it's beauty. An occasional
soap-and-water cleaning keeps it looking new. AZEK Decking is mold resistant,
since the cellular pvc formulation doesn't contain wood fibers which promote mold and mildew growth.
AZEK Deck has the workability of wood and you will love the lasting beauty of your AZEK Deck,
with colors that won't fade and the look, feel, and sound of wood.
