Price Ratings

Renewit’s price ratings are intended to provide customers an indication of a material cost in comparison to other materials within a material group. The number of “$” symbols indicates the relative price of materials. However, it’s important to note that materials with 2 dollar signs do not necessarily cost twice as much as those with 1 dollar sign.

Here is a breakdown of price ratings:


The most budget-friendly options suitable for those seeking the least expensive materials. These choices often include basic treated lumber or entry-level composite decking.

Value Plus

Moderately priced materials that strike a balance between affordability and quality. Customers can expect a wider range of options, such as mid-range composite or PVC decking.


Higher-end materials that offer superior quality, durability, and visual appeal. These materials may include premium PVC decking, steel framing, or specialized railing systems.


Top-of-the-line and materials associated with the highest quality, exceptional durability, and most expensive. These materials may include High-end Zuri PVC decking or illuminated frameless glass railings.
