In the world of custom deck building there are few materials or wood options that get quite as much attention as Trex Decking. If you’re doing research on installing a new deck, you have surely come across Trex at some point. Because it is so desirable, both from residents and builders alike, we took the time to compile the most frequently asked questions about Trex.
What is Trex?
Trex is a brand of decking materials as well as flooring, fences, railings, and even patio furniture. All Trex is made from a wood alternative composite material that makes them long lasting, beautiful, and hassle-free. It is currently the world’s #1 decking brand.
What is Trex Made out of?
Trex decking is made from 95% recycled materials, including reclaimed wood, saw dust and household plastics. While most of the materials used to make Trex are recycled, they are carefully processed to ensure the highest level of quality and performance. The end result is a decking material that performs better than wood.
Is Trex really better than wood?
You be the judge! Trex products offer a durability and quality that wood could never live up to. Trex decking resists termites and other wood burrowing insects. Trex will not rot, warp, splinter, and never needs to be stained or painted. Not to mention it is environmentally friendly, so it’s a decision you can feel great about making.
Isn’t Trex more expensive?
Trex decking materials are generally more expensive than wood decking materials. Keep in mind that with pressure-treated wood decking, there are maintenance costs that add up over time. Although you will spend more initially, you’ll never have to sand or paint your deck. Over it’s lifetime those reduced costs will add up to a greater value than wood. Trex is also backed by a warranty of up to 25 years.
What options does Trex offer?
For decking there are three major options that may suit your needs. These are Trex Transcend Composite decking, Trex Enhance Composite decking, and Trex Select Composite decking. Each has different colors and styles, and offers it’s own benefits. A Trex professional can help you with deciding which decking option is best for you.
