AZEK® Decking Named #1 in Quality in 2017 BUILDER Brand Use Study

SKOKIE, IL—AZEK® decking has been honored as the #1 Quality product for composite/PVC decking by building and construction-industry professionals through the 2017 BUILDER Brand Use Study.

AZEK Building Products invests heavily in materials science research and development to create a capped polymer decking product that resists scratches, stains, fading, mold, mildew, and moisture damage. Through product innovation, the AZEK Building Products team ensures AZEK decking is a high quality, durable product that also adds beauty and value to a home.

Developed with advanced polymer engineering, AZEK’s Alloy Armour Technology is a proprietary alloy formulation that provides improved performance characteristics, such as outstanding weathering and UV protection, resistance to scratching, and the ability to hold color over time. This technology has allowed AZEK decking products to carry an industry-best, 30-year limited fade and stain and a limited lifetime warranty.

“AZEK lives at the intersection of science and style,” said AZEK Building Products CMO Julia Fitzgerald. “Builders tell us AZEK’s polymer core makes it perfect for heat bending to create curves in premium decks. We also find that builders are changing our cities’ skylines with AZEK rooftop decks.  The lightweight durability is perfect for rooftop applications.”

“Being recognized for offering a product that is best ‘Quality’ by those in the field is truly rewarding,” said Patrick Barnds, General Manager of Decking at AZEK Building Products. “We always strive to earn the respect of our customers as being the company that manufacturers the best decks.”

ZomeTek’s xBEAM bamboo composite deck planks are extruded from unique, high-pressure and temperature machines which results in each piece being consistent in size and length each and every time.  The interior of the xBEAM deck planks have 6 hollow chambers that reduce the weight of each plank. In addition, the hollow channels mean there is less expansion and contraction.  Each board is 5×5” wide and 1” tall and all 5 beautiful colors are available in 12, 16 or 20 foot lengths.  The ZomeTek xBeam deck planks and can be installed by face screwing the boards or with a hidden fastener system and may be installed using either surface (Ridged or Brushed).

Zometek finish options

Complimenting Fascia, Stair Treads, Trim, Post Sleeves, Base Collars and Post Caps are available in all the same colors as the deck planks.  Please note ~ like most manufactured products, ZomeTek xBeam deck boards and its accessories may have slight color variations from piece to piece.  This is due to naturally occurring variations in the bamboo and the recycled plastic.  There for, we recommend purchasing all the decking materials at the same time as manufacturing runs can produce slightly different colors.

General ZomeTek xBeam Deck Plank Installation Directions

ZomeTek deck planks cut and work just like real wood, so special tools are not required for cutting or installation.  ZomeTek does recommend using a 60-tooth carbide tipped blade.

Before installing, be sure all existing framing is sound and meets your local building codes.  To comply with the manufacturer’s recommendations and maintain warranties, the decking joists must be a maximum of 16” on center and proper slope for drainage must be maintained.

xBeam deck planks can be installed by face-screwing or with a blind screw.  CAMO is an approved installation method, as well ~ please follow the manufacturer’s instruction for installation.

All materials do expand and contract as temperatures rise and fall.  Always leave appropriate gap between deck planks, which do vary based on the length of the plank being installed.  Please print the zometek_installation_guide for specifics, as well as more detailed installation instructions.

General ZomeTek xBeam Deck Plank Maintenance

For general cleaning the deck can be sprayed off with a hose to remove surface debris.  A mild dish soap mixed with warm water and a soft bristle brush may be used to remove dirt and/or debris from the grooves or texture, then thoroughly rinsed with water.  A thorough cleaning using an approved cleaner is recommended twice per year.  For a list of approved cleaners, please visit www.zometek.com

To remove light stains caused by food, grease or oil, if mild dish soap and warm water do not remove the stain, try using Simple Green.  The sooner the spill is cleaned up, the easier it will be to remove.

Pressure washers may be used with a maximum 1500 PSI.  Use a fan tip and keep a distance of at least 8-10” from the deck surface.
