Cellular PVC Description
AZEK® Brand Cellular PVC is the top brand. It's the only one we use in making our products and it really is a MIRACLE material!
It will never rot, cup, split, twist, or warp. It is impervious to moisture, salt, and insects. It's also suitable for ground or masonry contact and comes with a 25-year AZEK® manufacturer's warranty (lifetime warranty for Porch and Deck boards)!. Cellular PVC has most of the good qualities of real wood but none of wood's maintenance requirements. Intended for use in non-stress and non-loadbearing applications.
What is Cellular PVC?
AZEK® Brand Cellular PVC is the premier choice for synthetic wood. It has the look and feel of real wood. It's about the same density as White Pine, so it doesn't have that hard plastic sound when tapped nor is it cold to the touch. Items we cut from Cellular PVC have the same crisp corners as our wood items. There are no air bubbles or other voids and it's the same semi-matte white color throughout.
Looks Like Painted Wood
As it comes from AZEK, their boards have a mill finish indistinguishable from painted wood. And because Cellular PVC is impervious to moisture it does not require painting for protection. However, as we cut, mould, or sand while making items out of PVC the interior of the material is exposed. Because AZEK Cellular PVC is so fine-grained and consistent throughout the material, many of our customers install it unpainted.
Nevertheless, we believe painting provides the very best, most consistent appearance. Paint helps pollen, dust, and other contaminants slide off the surface and also covers very faint streaks of surface yellowing sometimes produced during machining.
Because cellular PVC does not absorb moisture paint lasts much longer than on wood. Use 100% acrylic latex paint with a Light Reflective Value of 55 or higher.
AZEK® surprises a contractor!
A customer, upon receiving her PVC Gable Decoration, emailed to say, "I sent you an email Saturday stating the Gable was wood, not PVC. The contractor who was putting this up said it was wood. My husband, who is a carpenter, said it is PVC. It just looked and felt so much like wood the contractor could not tell the difference. Sorry for the mistake."

"Couldn't be happier. One of the most professional businesses I have dealt with. I live in Jeffersonville, Indiana and make over 90% of my purchases on the internet and have dealt with hundreds of companies. Vintage Woodworks is in the top 5%. I needed some composite wood. Vintage Woodworks had the stuff I needed and it was the exact thickness. Vintage Woodworks was the only place online or in a store that sells it by the foot. I will check here first next time I need anything." - Sheldon K, Indiana
