Rick's Custom Fencing & Decking Offers Low-Maintenance Azek Decking Materials

February 22, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Portland, OR The Pacific Northwest's leading supplier of decking materials has teamed up with Azek Deck, the top manufacturer of stain-resistant PVC decking, to meet the region's growing demand for low-maintenance outdoor living spaces.

Rick's Custom Fencing & Decking now sells Azek decking materials at all of its five Oregon and Washington locations. This unique brand of cellular PVC decking was designed to address the shortcomings of other common decking materials and is quickly becoming a popular alternative to non-wood options, such as composite decking.

"Azek is the wave of the future in non-wood decking," said Nick Marshall, general manager for Rick's Custom Fencing & Decking. "It can be used for any typical decking application where the customer is looking for the appearance of wood without the maintenance."

Azek's imperviousness to moisture makes it a particularly desirable decking material in the Northwest, where heavy, year-round rainfalls wreak havoc on wood decks. Unlike wood, PVC decking requires no sanding or regular resealing. Other benefits of Azek Deck include:

Stain resistance. Unlike wood or composite, Azek decking materials are engineered to withstand the normal spills and stains that occur with regular use including juice, wine and hamburger grease.

Scratch resistance. Azek's durable surface also resists scrapes and scratches from patio furniture, shoes, pets and other environmental factors.

Longevity. Unlike wood-based decking materials, an Azek deck won't rot or fall prey to mold or mildew. This outstanding durability allows the manufacturer to offer a limited lifetime warranty.

Style. Azek decking materials are available in a variety of warm hues, inspired by the natural beauty of exotic hardwoods.
