Composite decking leader honored by PRODUCTS magazine and Houzz
WINCHESTER, Va., March 4, 2019 – The pros have spoken. Trex® has been named the most preferred decking brand among trade professionals, according to the recent PRODUCTS Brand Use Survey. The world’s largest manufacturer of high performance wood-alternative decking and railing outranked all other composite brands and pressure-treated lumber.
Reinforcing Trex as the undisputed decking leader, the results of the PRODUCTS survey put Trex decking well ahead of the competition. Nearly one third (31 percent) of survey respondents named Trex as the decking brand they most prefer – far surpassing the closest competitor. Trex also beat out wood by a significant margin with traditional pressure-treated decking material favored by only 18.3 percent of respondents.
“This survey is a strong indicator of how the market is trending,” noted Leslie Adkins, vice president of marketing for Trex. “More and more homeowners are opting for the premium aesthetics and low-maintenance ease of composite decking over wood. We’re proud to have earned a reputation as the go-to brand not only in the composite category but across the entire decking industry.”
Conducted in collaboration with Builder Partnerships, the 2019 PRODUCTS Brand Use Study evaluated input from more than 300 builders, remodelers, designers and architects in the residential construction industry. Highlights of the study are published in the Winter 2019 issue of PRODUCTS.
Trex doesn’t just rank number one among professional builders and industry experts, but with consumers, too. For the fifth consecutive year, Trex has been honored with a “Best of Houzz” Design Award. This distinction, determined by engagement with the brand by the more than 40 million unique monthly users that comprise the Houzz community, reinforces Trex as a valuable source of inspiration and quality for passionate home enthusiasts.
“It thrills us to know that our Trex images and content have resonated so strongly with the Houzz community,” added Adkins. “Our aim is to make it easy for homeowners to realize their outdoor living dreams. For many, that process starts on Houzz. With the help of this inspirational platform, we look forward to engaging and empowering homeowners for decades to come.”
