Production of custom color formulations at local stores are not controlled. Formulation variability can affect the Light Reflective Value (LRV) of the paint leading to higher heat absorption that can cause excess movement and damage to AZEK product.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can I only use certain Paints?

The paint color used on exterior building products is directly exposed to the sun. Light that is absorbed by the paint color converts to heat. When too much heat is absorbed, it can alter the actual physical building material in the form of warping, bowing and deformation. The correct selection of paint color will prevent this. The use of a color that does not meet AZEK paint color recommendations can lead to warping, buckling and excess movement. The use of a non-recommended color will.

What is the Light Reflective Value of a color?

All paint colors have a light reflective value (LRV) which is the measure of light reflected or alternatively absorbed. The LRV number represents the % of light reflected by that paint color. The higher the LRV number, the more light reflected. The lower the LRV number, the more light and heat absorbed. To help understand the scale, true white has a LRV rating of 100 and Black has LRV rating of 0.
