Trex Decking provides craftsmanship, style, and durability.
The choice between a wood deck and a composite deck comes down to a few considerations: initial cost, style, annual upkeep, and lifetime protection.
Wood may still be a common choice for decks, but it’s a less obvious one than it used to be. Composite decks offer a durability and simplicity that wood decks can’t match.
For homeowners and families that want to spend less time maintaining their decks and more time enjoying it, composite decks are increasingly attractive. One of the leading manufacturers of this style of high-performance composite deck boards is Trex.
Why Go With Trex Decking
Homeowners that choose Trex Decking are picking a great-looking wood composite deck that requires significantly less maintenance.
How much less?
A typical wood deck requires constant care with an annual investment of time and labor. Depending on the age of the wood and the severity of the weather, that work can include sanding, staining, and painting.
Beyond the upkeep, there are inevitable concerns that arise with a wood deck. As it rots, splits, and splinters, it can be unsafe for kids and adults alike. Without proper sealing, a wood deck can fade or stain or show scratches and scuffs. Without proper preventative care, insects can wreak havoc and cause structural damage to the deck.
By comparison, Trex Decking only needs a little soap and water – even a quick power wash will do – to look just like new. Plus, they’re insect proof, rot and split resistant, and made from 95% recycled materials.
What Are The Three Trex Decking Collections
There are three Trex Composite Decking Collections to choose from:
- Best – Trex Transcend Composite Decking
- Better – Trex Select Composite Decking
- Good – Trex Enhance Composite Decking
Beyond sharing some fundamental features, like their 25-Year Limited Residential and Fade & Stain warranties, sustainable manufacturing, and easy installation, there are some key differences.
Below, we share what each type of composite decking has to offer.
Why Homeowners Choose Trex Transcend Composite Decking
The premium option, Trex Transcend, is a best-in-class composite decking solution.
The first thing homeowners will notice with Transcend is the variety of eye-catching multi-tonal monochromatic colors. Choose from Havana Gold, Island Mist, Lava Rock, Spiced Rum, Tiki Torch, Gravel Path, Rope Swing, and Vintage Lantern.
That choice is one that’ll last, thanks to Transcend decks’ ability to maintain those vibrant colors. With their unyielding shell protection – that just so happens to be fade-, stain-, scratch-, and mold-resistant – Transcend decks look great for years. They can stand up to summer sun, winter snow, and the occasional dropped barbecue wing.
Trex Transcend Composite Decks are available in the following Decking Profiles: 1” Square Edge Board, 2” Square Edge Board, and 1” Grooved Edge Board. They’re also available in these Fascia Profiles: 1” x 8” x 12’ Fascia and 1” x 12” x 12’ Fascia.
