Cladding is tested to withstand extreme weather conditions including hurricane-force winds. Cladding holds its color over the life of the product, whereas IPE wood weathers over time if left untreated.
Apply cladding to your home's exterior vertically or horizontally to either a ventilated rainscreen or open-joint facade system, using conventional tools and methods.
Cladding uses 95% recycled plastic film and reclaimed sawdust, and is backed by our 25- and 50-year warranties.
Available in 10 monochromatic and multi-tonal colors, Trex Transcend® square-edge deck boards now provide an elegant, worry-free armor for your home's rainscreen assembly. Our open-joint application provides the protection and aesthetic your project deserves.

With just 4 components that go into the application of the open-joint Trex cladding, installation is as easy as it is breezy. Once a water-resistant barrier and metal or wood furring strips have been installed, you’re ready to install the Trex cladding boards with one of the recommended fasteners. See the full instructions here: Cladding Install Instructions.
The unyielding shell of our high-performance Trex Transcend cladding—means it never needs painting or staining. The rich color and protective finish are engineered right into the shell, and the shell is designed to remain free of rotting, splitting, splintering, and insect damage for 25 or 50 years. Not to mention, painting Trex decking may void your warranty.
Trex cladding is warranted for 50 years in a residential application and 25 years for commercial applications.
While Trex cladding boards are manufactured for the outdoors, they are not waterproof, nor intended to be submerged in water for long periods of time. With the recommended installation allowing for an open-joint system in addition to the recommended furring strips – the boards will get the necessary drainage and airflow to perform as intended.
A rainscreen is a ventilated system that sits lifted off a water-resistant surface of a building’s exterior wall.
