Read about our award-winning and on-trend Transcend Lineage decking collection

November 22, 2023

Known as one of the most trusted resources for homeowners looking to make their homes more beautiful, functional and sustainable, Good Housekeeping represents the brass ring of product endorsements. That’s why we're so proud to have had our Trex Transcend® Lineage™ decking selected by the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute to receive a 2023 Home Reno Award as one of the best “Exterior Enhancements” of the year.

The Good Housekeeping Home Reno Awards celebrate innovation happening across the home renovation and décor industries. Tested and reviewed by the pros at the Good Housekeeping Institute, only products that truly make a home better – whether easier to operate, more energy-efficient, safer, more stylish or a combination of these factors – earn a place on the winners list.

Transcend Rainier decking with Classic White railing

Design Inspiration Meets Performance Innovation

Praised for its aesthetics, sustainable composition and enhanced performance, Trex Transcend Lineage offers a winning combination for homeowners seeking a decking product that is as easy to live with as it is on the eyes. Representing our coolest decking yet – literally – Lineage is engineered with heat-mitigating technology in the shell that reflects the sun to keep boards cooler than other composite decking offerings of a similar color.* So, whether you’re hosting a spring gathering, soaking up the summer sun, taking in the fall colors or enjoying a mesmerizing winter evening, Lineage offers a comfortable setting for any occasion or climate.

This new collection also features a refined aesthetic with subtle graining that delivers an unmatched natural appearance. The collection’s understated, yet luxurious, hues are inspired by some of the most picturesque locales in the U.S.:

  • Carmel is a creamy taupe that embodies the glow of white sands and Cyprus-covered cliffs, integrating a toasty brown shade with grey undertones
  • Jasper delivers a deep shade of mocha reminiscent of old-growth forests and rocky mountainsides, incorporating a rich umber hue and delicate streaking
  • Biscayne captures the beauty of mangroves and sandy coasts in its light coastal brown with honey hues and natural grain pattern
  • Rainier offers an airy, mountain grey that mirrors white-capped mountains and wooded sounds with its soft silver tones and delicate graining

And in 2024, we are transitioning our coolest shade of grey, Island Mist, to Lineage. Island Mist, offering a medley of calming silver tones, has been a top seller since it was first introduced into the Transcend Tropicals collection. In Lineage, Island Mist will take on an even more natural look with refined graining and enhanced performance.

Eco-friendly Decking that Stands Up to Mother Nature and Father Time

As with everything at Trex, sustainability is at the center of Trex Transcend Lineage, which offers the look and feel of real wood without contributing to deforestation. Crafted from 95% recycled materials, including polyethylene plastic film and industrial wood scrap, Lineage decking contributes to the more than 1 billion pounds of reclaimed materials that are used each year in the making of Trex decking, making it an environmentally friendly option that feels as good as it looks.

Like all Trex decking, Lineage boards are engineered with a proprietary, high-traffic formulation and ultra-durable integrated shell that resists stains, scratches and mold. They won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter and upkeep is hassle-free. Unlike wood decking, Lineage boards never need to be sanded, stained or sealed and spills wash off easily with just soap and water. Further enhancing its appeal, Lineage decking is backed by a 50-year limited warranty for added peace of mind.

*Although Trex Transcend Lineage is designed to be cooler than most other composite decking products of a similar color, on a hot sunny day, it will get hot. On hot days, care should be taken to avoid extended contact between exposed skin and the deck surface, especially with young children and those with special needs.
