Composite decking materials just keep getting better and better. The newest offering from the decking board industry is a fabulous product called TimberTech Earthwood Evolutions Legacy. It gives its owners the beauty of hand-crafted hardwood indoor flooring in a product that is designed for outdoor living spaces. It’s incredibly durable and has a 25-year fade and stain warranty. It is available in Mocha, Pecan and Tigerwood and can be ordered with a grooved or square shouldered profile. We can install it with color-matched screws or no visible screws when we use TimberTech’s proprietary hidden fasteners.
We just installed our first deck with this new board and we are very excited about it. The board has a hand-scraped surface with variegated streaking and colors within the deck boards so it very accurately mimics wood found in nature. We wrote about this new line last fall when we saw it during a factory tour and have been secretly hoping that we
would have the opportunity to use it soon. Our clients chose the darkest of the family of three tropical decking colors. Their house is white aluminum and we were anxious to see how the contrast would work–hint–it worked beautifully.
The owners had a large existing patio that was not build correctly and was, as a result, unsafe. They found Archadeck after looking for a Columbus TimberTech deck builder. They also wanted to purchase and integrate a new hot tub into their deck. We knew this was an opportunity to create a unique Columbus deck design that would give them terrific flexibility in how they use their yard every day and, more importantly, eliminate a safety hazard from their home.
The new deck isn’t large– about 475 square feet, but it has a huge impact on the look of the house and how the family uses their yard for relaxing and entertaining. The TimberTech Mocha floor is surrounded by cedar railings with white aluminum pickets and matching mocha rail caps. We built a shady cedar pergola over a portion of the deck. The homeowner plans to stain all the cedar white to match the house. An LED-lighted inset bayed staircase naturally flows onto the stone patio.
The completed project features three distinctive outdoor living areas with a variety of views and uses. There is a fire pit and dining area in one section that allows for easy monitoring of the kids on the playset. The area under the pergola offers a little extra privacy when using the hot tub. The patio pavers are Unilock Camelot. The whole project from the cedar lattice skirting to the grand staircase look elegant and high maintenance, but are really very easy to care for. Everyone was thrilled with the beauty of the TimberTech decking.
