TimberTech’s Tropical Collection decking boards match durability with eye-catching appearance. TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Mist is one of the collection’s most popular options. Favored by homeowners and contractors in Ontario, the solid gray color makes a memorable impression. What’s more, TimberTech decking boards are built to last, whatever the weather.
TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Mist looks just like authentic tropical hardwood. It’s more durable than hardwood boards, however. These decking boards are engineered from composite and capped on all four sides by a polymer shell. That means the deck won’t scratch, fade, or stain. It will stand up to mold, mildew, and moisture, too.
Maintenance is minimal. Plus, TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Mist comes with a 25-year fade and stain warranty, so durability is guaranteed.

Shape of boards – available as either grooved and square-edged boards (16′ and 20′ only)
TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Mist decking boards look fantastic. They’re also easy to install. All TimberTech boardsare designed to be installed with CONCEALoc® hidden fasteners. FUSIONLoc® hidden fastener systems work great, too. FUSIONLoc offers the same flawless, fastener-free surface, and it’s easy to install.
Some contractors in Ontario prefer not to use hidden fasteners. Also, hidden fasteners don’t work when using square-edged boards for the main deck, picture framing, stairs, and skirting. In these cases, the TOPLoc™ Face Fastening System is a good option. Also, consider Cortex fastener systems. They’re made from the same decking material as the boards—ensuring a fastener-free surface.
Note that the deck’s underneath joist must be 16” on-center. If you plan to install the decking boards diagonally, the underneath joists’ structure must be 12” on-center. In cases of diagonal installation, the customer will end up spending around 35 percent more on fasteners than when installing joists 16” on-center.
TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Miststands out as a main deck without picture framing. However, if you want to add a picture frame, go with darker boards. Darker boards provide an aesthetically-pleasing contrast with the main deck. TimberTech Tropical Collection Caribbean Redwood is a perfect fit.
TimberTech Tropical Collection Amazon Mist comes with included raisers and fascia boards (0.56” x 7¼” x 12’ & 0.56” x 11.75” x 12’, respectively). These supplementary boards are the same color as the main deck.
