Building a deck is an investment, so you’ll want to get it right from the start. Fortunately, our design team chose the best decks to go with all kinds of homes. Have a read, and then start sampling.

It’s hard to find a deck that doesn’t look great against a quarried palette of grey, taupe and caramel. Difficult as it was, our stylists chose two frontrunners: Trex Transcend® decking in Tiki Torch and the Trex Transcend® Lineage shade Jasper, two rich composite shades that mimic the dynamic ebbs and flows of color in natural stone. The nutmeg and ginger tones of Tiki Torch complement its warmer streaks, while the mocha-inspired shade of Jasper accents the stone’s bluish slates and sandy ivories.

Vinyl is one of the most popular sidings for new homes in the U.S., and it’s easy to understand why. Vinyl provides homeowners with a durable, low-maintenance option that keeps both heating and cooling costs down. For homes with horizontal vinyl panels in a classic tan, our design team recommends Trex Enhance® in the shade Rocky Harbor as well as Trex Transcend® in Havana Gold. Rocky Harbor brings a not-like-the-Jones modernity to an exterior often found in suburban developments, while Havana Gold's rich, honey tones add a luxe, reading-room feel that evokes stately heritage.

Dating back to Colonial times, shakes have a handsomely rugged and rustic appearance that recall summers spent on New England shores. In complement to their old-Americana patina, our design team recommends sampling both Trex Select in Pebble Grey and Trex Transcend in Rope Swing. The sandy tones of Rope Swing play on the beachy feel of the shakers. On the other hand, the matte oomph of Pebble Grey grounds shakes in a deep sea of modern grey—perfect for a clean, streamlined look.

From the sweeping center hall colonials of Charleston to the charming craftsman bungalows of Portland, brick homes of every size and style have endless curbside appeal. Not only is brick a clean, natural material, but it also absorbs sound and resists fire, serving as a terrific form-meets-function choice. To tease out its range of burnished red and brown shades, our design team recommends Trex Transcend decking in the shade Lava Rock, a durable composite that boasts the hardy, striated appearance of redwood. Likewise, the color Carmel from the Trex Transcend Lineage line —a timeless, creamy taupe—goes hand-in-hand with classic brick.

Close your eyes and imagine the sprawling ranchers of Southern California and O’Keefe’s Southwest; a sunny stucco likely springs to mind. When considering the type of deck that would complement stucco’s painterly, midcentury allure, our design team went with a pristine, stony grey—Trex Transcend Lineage in Rainier—to keep the palette airy, elevated and chic. In contrast, Trex Transcend in the shade Spiced Rum, is a rich, tropical-inspired umber that adds soul and gravitas.
