Let's Talk Trex: Q&A With Three 60 Management

TrexPro Platinum builders are the leading experts in Trex products. Because of their ability and expertise to design and build outdoor spaces ranging from simple to complex, they have achieved the highest level of recognition from Trex. Currently, there are 226 TrexPro Platinum builders across the U.S. and Canada. We’ll check in with them to find out what's trending in outdoor living in their neck of the woods.

This month, meet Tana Mallory, President of Three 60 Management of Vancouver, WA.

Estimate the number of decks you've built in your lifetime.
300+.

Most used / most requested Trex color?
Trex Transcend® in Havana Gold.

What do you tell customers who are torn between wood and composite?
That the initial investment in comparison to wood will have a break-even within 1-3 years (depending on product selection), and then the deck is basically maintenance-free with no cost.

Thinking about your particular geographic location and climate, what are customers generally looking for when it comes to an outdoor living area?
Dry space due to the rain. Also, no staining is a huge factor because here in the NW, it is an annual event if you want your deck to last.

What’s your favorite Trex product other than decking?
Trex RainEscape is a great product for our area...it is a great way to better utilize under-deck areas.

Finish the following: the most impressive Trex deck I ever built…
was a Trex Transcend deck overlooking Lacamas Lake. The client turned a divided deck on the back of his home into a connected area where he can come out from his master bedroom or family room and access the entire space.

Finish the following: kryptonite is to Superman as Trex is to…
deck maintenance!

Describe Trex decking in five words or less.
Beautiful, low-maintenance outdoor living.
