With Hurricane Arthur threatening to disrupt Fourth of July plans along the East Coast, it’s a good time to point out a 2013 Coastal Living magazine article that cited composite decking as one of 10 storm-worthy products for the home.
With its low-maintenance and weather resistance qualities, high-performance composite decking boards, such as Trex Transcend®, Enhance® and Select®, keep decks looking good as new long after the storms pass. Trex decking won't soak up water like wood planks; won't splinter, warp or fade under summer's punishing hot sun; and will withstand snow and ice during winter's assault. With Trex’s 25-year Fade & Stain warranty, you’ll find comfort in knowing that our decking will maintain its vibrant color and luxurious finish despite the abuse.
Trex Elevations® steel deck framing offers an additional measure of protection against fire and storms. The first steel decking substructure to receive a code listing won't split, warp or shift over time. Our dimensionally stable steel provides a flat surface for your decking and is rated to withstand hurricane-force winds. Elevations components are non-combustible, carry a Class 1A fire rating and can be used on homes built in areas prone to wildfire.
As the 2014 hurricane season heats up, we can expect our share of summer storms and violent weather to take a toll not only on our psyches but also our homes and outdoor spaces. With Trex, you'll have peace of mind that your deck will stand up against what Mother Nature has in store.
