Deck Designs and Layouts: What's Your Style?

Transform your backyard landscape for outdoor entertaining! Be sure to think about what matches your house colour,
deck furniture, and interior style preferences.

Create eye-catching details with dramatic curved lines. Invest in versatile high-performance decks that offer stunning
form and function.

Looking for something more unique? Try beautiful finishes with multi-tones and subtle shades that help camouflage dirt. For visual
interest, add trim in a different shade.

When building your outdoor oasis, the choice is yours. Hot tubs. Fire pits. Pergolas. Play around with your options to create the
outdoor space of your dreams.

Deck board samples are available at your local Lowe's.

Decking Materials:
Which Is Right For You?

Understand your options before choosing the material that's right for you.

Thinking of adding a roof deck? AZEK® capped polymer is strong, durable, and weather resistant. Count on this lightweight building
material to resist stratches, stains, and fading.

For durability and a greater return on your investment, turn to composite decking. With the look and feel of real lumber,
high-performance composite decks outperform wood over time. Much more resistant to the elements, they offer the charm of
traditional wood without the high-maintenance hassles.

However, classic pressure-treated lumber has its own benefits as well. Versatile, easy to use, and affordable,
it's also available exclusively at Lowe's in modern grey. Each piece is inspected for high quality and is kiln dried for maximum
durability.

Concerned about the environment? TimberTech and AZEK are committed to sustainability through clean manufacturing and the use of
recycled content in their products.
