PVC Trim And Decking Boards By AZEK

AZEK Building Products Company offers an array of building materials for outdoor applications.

AZEK Trim and Deck Boards,  Moulding, Porch and Rail products that are maintenance free and easy to install. AZEK Trim is the number one brand of pvc trim nationally – it is an excellent wood replacement product for non-structural applications. AZEK Moulding is the perfect complement to AZEK trim boards.

AZEK is a cellular PVC product that feels and works like pine. You can shoot it with pneumatic nailers, cut it with saws, sand and route it.

It’s a little heavier and floppier than pine so you need to be prepared to support it on rollers or have a helper when you’re doing a long rip on the table saw.  It’s also more flexible than pine so it works very well in radius applications.

When using the AZEK glue the pvc actually fuses together and creates a joint stronger than the material itself.

AZEK does not need to be Painted. It’ll get dirty during installation but cleans up nicely with denatured alcohol.  To paint, AZEK, requires one pass with acrylic latex to develop color uniformity throughout the project.
