As we’ve written before, synthetic outdoor building materials continue to improve over time. While composite decking brands have come and gone over the years, here in the Kansas City market, we have historically and continue to enjoy success with AZEK. AZEK composite decking not only performs well but it carries a 25-year warranty providing protection from splitting, cupping, splintering, blistering, peeling, flaking, cracking, rotting or structural damage from termites or fungal decay.
In 2016, AZEK is rolling out a new technology called Alloy Armour technology. AZEK’s proprietary alloy blend provides increased performance including better weathering protection, better UV protection and more fade & stain resistance. With the proprietary Alloy Armour technology, AZEK is now adding an additional 30-year warranty which specifically covers fade and stain protection. When evaluating contractors to build your new project, it’s important to look at all the warranties available. With Archadeck, we offer our own additional warranties. We have a guarantee of project completion even if any unfortunate situations should arise with your local crew, a 12-month workmanship warranty and a 60-month structural warranty.
In addition to AZEK’s new technology and warranty, there are introducing some color changes in 2016. Here are the color changes:
- Sandridge will now be Brownstone
- River Rock will now be changed to Slate Gray
- Tahoe will now be changed to Island Oak
- Sedona will now be changed to Autumn Chestnut
- Walnut Grove will be changed to Brazilian Walnut
- Redland Rose will be changed to Mountain Redwood
- Rustic Bark will be changed to Mahogany
- Harvest Bronze will be changed to Cypress
