Have you ever heard of Azek?
If you plan to do any outdoor projects this spring, you might want to look into it.
Azek is an essentially weatherproof PVC product that comes in sheets and planks.
I thought of it while looking at some materials for decks. I’ve used Azek on some docks and decks in the past.
Some of the potential uses are really pretty incredible. I’ve used Azek for exterior trim, exterior beadboard ceilings, and for framing trellises and pergolas. If you stick with the colors it comes in, you don’t even have to paint it. The color goes all the way through so even your cuts are finished.
Something like these curved pieces can be made easily out of a sheet of Azek.
When you’re working with something that is impervious to weather and bugs, plus has color all the way though, you can get crazy with your ideas:
How cool is that?
We talk about beadboard a lot. Usually we’re discussing the wooden kind that you’re going to have to paint, but if you’re working outside, the Azek Beadboard might be worth the extra cost, which is pretty substantial.
Even for indoor areas that might get wet, such as a kitchen wall splash, Azek works great!
Remember… no need to paint. That’s a huge plus.
You can get Azek at most building supply centers. They have a dealer locator on the website.
If you do a project with it, be sure to let me know how it worked for you!
