    Timbertech's latest composite deck offering, Legacy collection in "Tiger Wood"

     

    Now for a quick review of the product: 

    The Legacy collection is probably the best looking composite decking i have seen.  It has a varied color with wood grain appearance and lots of texture. 

    There is a few things going on with the texture, first there is an embossed "wood grain" as well as a hand scraped scalloped effect.  The problem with all this texture is that the scallops seem to prevent water from draining off the decking, this combined with boards that consistently had a slight cup at the ends made for a very wet deck.

    Timbertech’s Legacy decking  will be very popular with homeowners due its great appearance but I think that in our damp climate its tendency to pool water on the deck  is going to keep me from recommending it to my customers, at the very least I will be letting people know about this decking’s tendency to stay wet after a rain.
