Gina Ciancio, author of the Australian design and DIY blog “Style Curator,” counts down her 5 favorite reasons to build with Trex.
"Trex decking looks just like wood but is made from 95% recycled and reclaimed materials and is very low maintenance."
"The most appealing aspect of it for my client is that it’s hassle-free – the only ‘maintenance’ she’ll ever have to do is a simple soap and water clean every now and then."
"There are big cost savings to be made over the lifespan of the deck as it is fade-, stain-, scratch- and mold resistant — it even comes with a 25-year Limited Residential Fade and Stain warranty."
"It’s nice to know that a tree has never been cut down to make this material and that it’s actually helping to keep wood and plastic waste out of landfills."
"The result is a stunning wood-look deck without any of the maintenance such as sanding, staining or fixing warped boards."
