We install a lot of composite decking as well as hardwood, cedar, and to a lesser degree, PVC. Founder and Owner of Archadeck of Suburban Boston. we found it on the internet, used it and it worked great. Many homeowners complain that composite decking gets too hot, especially in direct sun. Because of the polyethylene, the board will get significantly hotter but will also hold that warmth for a longer period of time.  The warmest boards I tested also use the most conductive materials (PVC and polyethylene), so the all-plastic deck boards will probably feel even hotter to your skin than their higher temperatures suggest.Â, Which decking should you choose?  All-PVC decking resists stains, mildew, and scratches, but it is hotter than cap stock with its composite core.  It can also be more expensive.  If your family will be barefoot much of the summer in warmer, sunny climates – Florida, Texas, Arizona, etc. Resistance to staining and scratching Surface = Alloy Armour Technology Core = Polymer (no wood fibers) Warranty = Limited 30-year fade & stain, limited lifetime against material defects, termite & rot damage. You may be able to save time and money by using AZEK Deck to simply resurface your existing deck structure instead of starting over from scratch. Are you feeling pressured to treat your pressure treated deck? A word of caution here.  If you want to know which decking will feel coolest to your bare feet, my measurements are not the complete answer.  Ultimately, how hot decking feels is a function of both its surface temperature and its thermal conductivity.  My measurements do not address “thermal conductivity”. You’re probably less interested in cooking eggs on your deck than you are walking barefoot on it.  Your concern is reasonable – especially if the bare feet on your new deck will look like these:                               Or these: To find out, I put a wide selection of synthetic decking [1] on 2xs in the hot August sun and measured the surface temperatures.  I admit, I am limited by geography.  The Boston suburbs this August barely reached the low 80s on sunny days.  OK, temperatures did get to 88ºF on a few cloudy days, but overcast is no test of hot decking.  You need the relentless sun to raise the temperatures to their realistic maximum.  In all, I measured 63 synthetic deck samples from six manufacturers, in 17 product groups.  For comparison, I included several wood species, concrete, brick, and asphalt.Â. That’s why we developed a heat resistant composite decking solution. A special thanks to little Konstantino, who helped to test a synthetic deck (TimberTech Tigerwood).  And, no, we did not burn him.  We photographed him on a cloudy day in the low 70s.Â, A.

Although composite and pvc decking does get hotter than treated decking at the temperature tested, a lighter color of the man-made decking comes close to the same temperature as a darker color on the treated stained wood for the 86 degree day tested. Indeed, the warmest deck boards are also the lightest. Capped polymer decking designed for unrivaled high-performance and beauty. Take note. So even after sundown, your composite deck will hold that warmth for a couple of hours. AZEK Decking Class Action Lawsuit. [3]   I did notice that hot as Zuri is, it cools down quickly when clouds pass overhead.Â. One thing we found was the Trex deck in sunlight gets very hot, so you can't walk barefoot on it. BR: So there you have it. MR: Well the Azek should be cooler even to the touch under the same circumstances compared to a composite but absolutely the temperature will dissipate far quicker with a PVC. While there is a difference in the top out temperature with your darker color PVC products relative to the lighter colors, the difference is not as noticeable as it is with the composites. AZEK Deck/Porch is a PVC/polymer deck plank and not a wood/plastic composite. Options for restoring your PT deck. Azek decks tend to get quite slick in rainy weather and around hot tubs. We have Ipe, Cedar, TimberTech, and Azek and all four were affected by heat in different ways. It’s because of this resistance that Azek is the clear winner. So the denser the wood is, like Ipe, the longer it is going to take to heat up but the higher the temperature will reach. My deck is made from Ipe and I have walked barefoot on it for years. MR: As far as the synthetic deckings are concerned the color has more of an effect on composites. So another area I want to talk about is color. Although AZEK Deck products are cooler to the touch than many other deck board products in similar colors, all decking products will get hot in the sun.

As long as your deck understructure is in good shape, it should be easy to replank the structure and get rid of those warped, splintered, and rotten wooden deck …   That sounds like a term from physics.  Perhaps some physics will help us: Here’s Fourier’s Law of Heat Conduction:  The time rate of heat transfer through a material is proportional to the negative gradient in the temperature and to the area.  More clearly stated: OK,….that didn’t help.  Besides, I didn’t have any spare negative gradients hanging around when I measured the decking. The material is also better which makes it skid resistant. Yup.  I summarized the test results in the table further on.  But first permit me a few observations. The "Coolest" Decking Product: Temperature Test. Duralife has a hard plastic cap, and it’s slightly cooler than TimberTech’s all composite boards, which have no plastic cap.  I suspect Duralike’s advantage is in the materials:  it uses polypropylene plastic for its cap and in its core.  The other manufacturers use polyethylene or PVC, both of which conduct more heat than polypropylene. While early composite decks were very sensitive to temperature and did get notoriously hot, any new composite decking will be much more resistant to heat. © 2018, 2019 Advantage Design & Construction, Inc.
