Azek is a name brand for a product known as PVC trim, but like Kleenex, Frizbee, and Tylenol, many people know the product only by its brand name rather by its actual description. PVC is the same material used to make many kinds of waterproof products such as pipes, sliding doors, and even artificial leather furniture. When used as an exterior trim product, Azek provides superior durability against the forces of nature here in the DC area.
Many homeowners are asking questions these days about new products like Azek. Are they better? Will they last? How does the cost compare?
Azek and other PVC products have some remarkable advantages. Because it is completely waterproof, it can never rust, rot, or wear out. It requires very minimal maintenance, and helps sustain the long-term beauty and value of your house. Paint will adhere better to PVC and endure against rain and sun much longer than it will on wood, meaning that it will not need repainting often.
The main hesitation to using Azek is its price: for many homeowners, the cost of replacing all of their wood trim with PVC at once is prohibitive. For this reason, many people replace their trim a few pieces at a time, only when a piece is currently rotted or has a high probability of rotting in the near future.
