Wood-alternative Outdoor Living Products Lend Sustainable Sophistication to High-tech, Eco-friendly Showcase
WINCHESTER, Va., April 4, 2019 – Everything may be bigger in Texas, but thanks to the HGTV® Smart Home 2019, they’re smarter, too! The stunning Dallas-based property designed by HGTV star Tiffany Brooks offers a fresh take on Old World style blending traditional elements with the latest in high-tech features and eco-friendly materials – both inside and out.
Among the highlights of this year’s showcase home is an impressive outdoor space boasting the pinnacle of wood-alternative decking from industry leader Trex. With premium aesthetics and durability in mind, Brooks chose Trex Transcend® decking in Gravel Path for the home’s ground-level deck supported by Trex Elevations® Steel Deck Framing. Additionally, the deck is outfitted with Trex® DeckLighting™ and also features a Trex® Pergola™ with Trex® Vision Tension Canopy.
“Trex products are a natural choice for any smart home because they are extremely durable, require very little maintenance and are environmentally friendly,” explained Leslie Adkins, vice president of marketing for Trex Company. “The entire Trex decking portfolio is made from more than 95% recycled material. A large majority of the aluminum and stainless steel used in our products is from recycled sources as well, making them ideal options for today’s eco-conscious designers and homeowners.”
Unrivaled Durability and Beauty
High-performance Transcend is Trex’s premium decking offering, pairing an elevated aesthetic with the industry’s highest level of performance. Transcend is engineered to resist fading, staining, scratching and mold. It won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter and, unlike wood, it requires no sanding, staining or painting. In fact, food and drink spills wash off easily with just soap and water.
Staying true to Trex’s commitment to sustainability, Transcend is manufactured from recycled content, including reclaimed wood and sawdust, as well as common household items such as newspaper sleeves and bubble wrap. Each year, Trex diverts more than 250 million pounds of plastic film, bags and wrap from ending up in landfills and uses it to make eco-friendly outdoor living products that endure for more than 25 years.
Solid from the Ground Up
The substructure of a deck is the foundation of its durability and aesthetics, so it makes perfect sense that the HGTV Smart Home 2019 deck is supported by Trex Elevations Steel Deck Framing. Traditional wood framing can split, warp and shift over time, leading to an uneven surface in the deck boards above, while Elevations is precision engineered to ensure a refined, flat surface for the life of the deck. Trex’s steel deck framing resiliently stands up to weather, moisture, time and pests. In addition, Elevations contains a minimum of 25 percent recycled steel and is a 100 percent recyclable resource.
Designed to Shine
Recessed deck lights from the Trex DeckLighting collection are featured throughout the deck area to enhance safety and ambiance. These subtle lights install flush on the deck boards for a clean, unfettered look. Made from energy-efficient, low-voltage Cree® LEDs, these easy-to-install components are extremely durable and waterproof, ensuring that they will endure the elements for years to come. Plus, the lights are cool to the touch, making them safe for children and pets.
Made for Shade and Style
Protecting against the hot Texas sun and adding sleek lines to the outdoor space, the Trex Pergola creates the look and feel of an outdoor dining room. The customized structure is based on the Trex Pergola Balance design and is fashioned with a Trex Vision Tensioned Canopy in Natural, complementing the exterior architecture and colors of the home. Built to last, Trex Pergolas require minimal maintenance and will never rot, warp, split or fade to provide years of beauty and enjoyment. For DIYers, Trex Pergola kits come in a wide range of standard sizes and include all the pre-cut components and hardware necessary, making installation easy.
