TimberTech Tropical Collection

TimberTech’s new re-designed Tropical collection features rich colors and textures inspired by beautiful, reclaimed wood.

In recent independent consumer testing, the new Tropical Collection colors were preferred nearly 4:1 over the competition. Designed to provide builders and homeowners with best-in-class finishes, the Tropical Collection showcases a stunning array of color options, including Antique Palm, Caribbean Redwood, Antigua Gold, and Amazon Mist, a contemporary mid-tone gray with warm undertones of soft blonde and deep brown. TimberTech decking is the only premium wood composite decking that is capped with a protective polymer on all four sides. This means that even the board’s back side resists staining, rotting, cracking and moisture absorption. All TimberTech decking is highly durable, easy to maintain, and comes with a 25-Year Limited Residential Warranty and 25-Year Fade & Stain Limited Warranty. Visit

DaVinci Multi-Width Slate tiles come in five different widths, from 12 to 6 inches, and are available in a number of different color blends.
