3 Reasons to Switch to Composite Decking

You could build your deck with any number of materials. But why would you, when Trex® consistently outdecks wood and the wannabes? Below we unpack three of the many reasons Trex high-performance composite is the decking your outdoor space deserves.

Trex vs Competitors

Get the look of wood without all the worry. Trex requires no seasonal painting, sealing or staining. Unlike wood, it won’t warp, fade, rot or splinter. And it’s of no interest to hungry termites. That being said, not all wood-alternatives are created equal. PVC decking is made predominantly from virgin plastic and chemical additives, making it a far less eco-friendly option.

Trex vs the Elements

Our high-performance, water-resistant decking material allows Trex to stand up to years of temperate climates and taxing rainstorms. Not to mention, we offer products like Trex® RainEscape®, a unique under-deck drainage system that keeps rain, spills and snowmelt from dripping through elevated deck boards—creating a dry patio area below.

Trex vs Waste

Being green is in our DNA. We make our eco-friendly decking from an innovative blend of 95% reconstituted wood and plastic film. On top of that, our company uses some of the most earth-friendly manufacturing processes in the country, reclaiming factory waste and eliminating the use of harmful chemicals.
