What is Trex

Outdoor living spaces have transcended from being simple backyards to sophisticated extensions of our homes. The rise of Trex Decking has been a significant part of this transformation, offering a sustainable, durable, and beautiful alternative to traditional wood decks. For homeowners and outdoor enthusiasts looking to marry style with low maintenance, Trex is setting a new standard in composite deck construction. If you’re contemplating an upgrade to your outdoor living oasis, read on to discover what Trex Decking is all about and how it can enhance your outdoor experience.

What Makes Trex Decking Unique

Trex is unique among decking materials for a variety of reasons. Trex decking, unlike traditional wood, is a composite constructed mostly of recycled polymers and wood fibers, reflecting a commitment to environmental sustainability. This not only promotes environmentally responsible techniques, but also results in a deck material that is less prone to warping, splintering, and rotting. This emphasis on longevity and environmental responsibility means that Trex remains a popular choice for homeowners looking for a deck that is both durable and environmentally friendly.

Trex Composite Decking Material Options

When it comes to decking material, Trex offers a range of options to suit any budget and design preference. These include:

  • Trex Select: This entry-level option delivers the same durability and low maintenance benefits as all Trex products at an affordable price point.
  • Trex Enhance: A step up from Select, this collection features composite boards with a natural wood-grain pattern for a more authentic look.
  • Trex Transcend: The top-of-the-line option, Transcend offers the most design versatility with multiple color options and a premium tropical hardwood finish.

The Benefits of Trex Decking

Beyond its environmental advantages, Trex decking also boasts an impressive list of benefits that make it a desirable option for any outdoor space. These include:

Low Maintenance: Unlike wood decks that require regular staining and sealing, Trex decking is virtually maintenance-free. Its composite construction makes it resistant to fading, staining, and mold growth, reducing the need for constant upkeep. This means more time for you to enjoy your deck and less time spent on maintenance tasks.

Durability: Trex decking is built to last, withstanding harsh weather conditions, heavy foot traffic, and everyday wear and tear. Its composite material resists scratching, splintering, and rotting, ensuring your deck will look great for years to come.

Versatility: Trex decking comes in a variety of colors and finishes, allowing you to customize your outdoor space according to your personal style. Plus, with hidden fasteners and no exposed screws or nails, the result is a sleek and seamless look that adds value to your home.

Safety: With Trex decking, there’s no need to worry about sharp edges or splinters. Its smooth surface and composite construction make it safe for bare feet and little ones to play on.

The Installation Process

Professional installation is recommended for Trex decks due to the precise measurements and cuts required, as well as the necessary knowledge of complex framing and joist systems. However, for the seasoned DIY-er, Trex provides comprehensive instructions and support to tackle the project. For the majority, the peace of mind that comes from having a professional crew handle installation is well worth the investment, especially considering that improper installation can impact the long-term stability and warranty of the deck.
