Weyerhaeuser ChoiceDek® decking and railing products are made with a patented process that encapsulates recycled wood fiber in recycled polyethylene. This unique composition makes it an ideal choice for decking and railing exposed to the elements all year long.
Since 1994, the good looks and durability of ChoiceDek materials have appealed to growing legions of homeowners seeking low maintenance alternatives for new or replacement decks. These homeowners have been attracted to ChoiceDek® products because they requires no additional sealing, staining or painting.
These same benefits make ChoiceDek® decking an ideal choice for numerous other outdoor applications, including docks, boardwalks, outdoor furniture and stairways. It is also slip and splinter resistant, making it an excellent choice for pool and spa decks as well as play structures.
The decking boards are available in two standard sizes (5/4" x 6" or 2" x 6") and come in 8' through 20' lengths. The product line even includes a selection of matching railing products such as rails, balusters, posts and other items. They are all available in four standard colors to match almost any homeowner's taste: Sandstone, Woodtone, Redwood and Gray. Each color has been carefully selected for its natural appearance and ability to integrate well in any outdoor environment. ChoiceDek products also can be painted if desired.
Weyerhaeuser ChoiceDek® materials can be worked using standard hand or power tools. Carbide saw blades, router bits and drill bits are recommended, and thinner blades with fewer than 20 teeth are preferred because they wear longer and do not easily heat up. Pilot holes are recommended when installing balusters and handrails. When drilling, periodically remove the drill and clear away shavings.
ChoiceDek® decking and railing products are manufactured by Advanced Environmental Research Technology, Inc. (AERT) and distributed by Weyerhaeuser exclusively to Lowes Home Improvement stores across the country. It has been extensively tested by independent laboratories under hostile accelerated aging conditions and carries a limited lifetime, fully transferable manufacturer's warranty that applies even in water contact applications.
