Azek Decking is a cellular PVC decking that is stain and scratch resistant. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty as well as a 25-year fade and stain warranty. “Azek Decking is a reliable choice,” says Daniel from Decks R Us. “It’s a popular choice for our customers because it requires less maintenance than composite decking.” You may have heard of Azek under its old name ProCell which became popular in the market around 2004. It was the first Cellular PVC decking to become popular. In fact, it was so popular that it was only available in the eastern half of the U.S. until Azek Building Products bought them out in 2007 and increased production so they could offer it all across the country.
Azek runs about 20% less than Ipe, about 15% less than Cumaru.
Remember with any material, the lighter colors hide the dirt and stay cooler. The darker colors show the dirt and retain heat so they get hotter. Azek decking is manufactured by Azek Building Products at several locations around the country.

Azek Decking Maintenance
Can be cleaned routinely with just a garden hose. Dried on spills and bird dung can be cleaned with dish soap and a stiff brush or you can use a mild cleaner such as 409 or Fantastik. This decking material will require occasional pressure washing. If there are a lot of trees around your deck and leaves lie on your deck for a while, you may need to scrub the deck with cleaner and a brush as well as pressure washing it. Remember, no deck is completely maintenance free.
