TimberTech’s Legacy Collection decking boards are very popular among homeowners and contractors around Ontario. TimberTech Legacy Collection Ashwood is one of the best options the company has to offer. The soft gray color can add a pleasant touch to any home’s exterior. Plus, their functionality and durability are unmatched.
TimberTech decking boards look and feel like real hardwood. However, Legacy Collection Ashwood is a lot more durable than any hardwood board. These one-sided decking boards—available in both grooved and square-edged varieties—are capped on all four sides by a polymer shell. The rich wood grain closely mimics the appearance of real Ashwood.
Maintenance is minimal, with no annual sealing or staining required. What’s more, TimberTech Legacy Collection Ashwood comes with a 25-year fade and stain warranty

TimberTech Legacy Collection Ashwood decking boards are known for convenience as well as quality. That’s for good reason: installation is easy. Decking boardsfrom TimberTech are designed for installation with CONCEALoc® hidden fasteners.
However, FUSIONLoc® hidden fastener systems provide the same flawless, fastener-free surface, with much easier installation.
If you choose not to use hidden fasteners—or if you’re using square-edged boards for the main deck, picture framing, stairs, skirting, or other features—good options are available.
Suitable fasteners include the TOPLoc™ and Cap-Tor Face Fastening Systems.
Also, Cortex, Pro Plug and other fastener systems made from the same decking material as the boards provide a sheer, fastener-free surface that looks and feels great.
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. If choosing diagonal installation, you’ll end up spending around 35 percent more on fasteners than you would with joists 16” on-center.
TimberTech Legacy Collection Ashwood looks fantastic as a main deck without picture framing. However, if you’re set on building a picture frame, it’s preferable to use darker boards. Darker boards provide a picturesque contrast that can make any deck stand out. TimberTech Legacy Collection Pecan is a great option.
TimberTech Legacy Collection Ashwood has raisers and fascia boards (0.56” x 7¼” x 12’ & 0.56” x 11.75” x 12’, respectively). The raisers and fascia boards are the same color as the main deck.
