Advantages of Trex Composite Decking

One of the greatest benefits of Trex high performance deck boards is its durability. It resists fading, is insect-proof, and splinter-free. Composite decking is also low maintenance: there’s no need to worry about sanding, staining, or painting. Plus, you’ll enjoy the look and feel of natural wood with the reassurance that you’re using sustainable products. Your Trex composite deck builder can deliver results that are:

  • Eco-Friendly: Made from reclaimed scraps and recycled plastic.
  • Durable: Won’t rot, split, crack, scratch, warp, or mold.
  • Pest-Free: No termites or any other insects.
  • Fade-Resistant: And available in a wide range of colors.
  • Low-Maintenance: Enjoy the look of natural wood with none of the work.

Trex Composite Decking: Best Wood Alternative

Natural wood decking needs a lot of work to look good and last for many years. Along with regular painting, staining, or sealing, natural wood is prone to rotting, splitting, and splintering, which can be hazardous to you and your family and require extra time and expense to repair. Plus, if insects such as termites get a hold of a natural wood deck, extensive structural damage can spell the end of your deck. Choosing a wood deck is far from the relaxing experience you deserve from your outdoor spaces.

In contrast, Trex composite decking is hassle-free and ready whenever you want to use it. A quick spring cleaning is all you’ll need once the weather warms up for the season. Composite decking is guaranteed to look great for 25 years—with virtually no maintenance other than a bit of soap and water. Plus, Trex composite decking is good for the Earth as it’s made from 95% recycled materials. In fact, Trex saves 400 million pounds of plastic and wood from landfills every year. When you want quality and durability with the look and feel of natural wood, choose a Trex composite deck builder.

PVC is No Match for Trex Composite Decking!

PVC is a low-maintenance decking alternative to pressure treated wood with plenty of benefits. It’s resistant to rot, termites, and mold and does not require regular reapplying of stain or paint. If you’re considering PVC, there are a few drawbacks to consider, including:
  • Chalking. As the outer layer of PVC starts to degrade, the breakdown of materials can leave behind an unsightly white, powdery residue.
  • Vulnerable. PVC decking is more likely to shrink or expand due to temperature fluctuations when compared to composite.
  • Fading. PVC is resistant to fading, but the use of rubber mats or even sunscreen and insect repellant can cause fading and staining.
  • Fussy. Most manufacturers recommend special cleaning products to maintain the look of PVC decking over time.
Plus, PVC decking is made only from synthetic materials, and generally from brand-new materials. PVC can be recycled once it’s used, but composite decking makes use of discarded materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill. If you’re looking for truly maintenance-free decking installed, that will look good for decades, it’s time to call a Trex composite deck builder.
