4 Advantages of Trex® Decking Material

4 Advantages of Trex® Decking Material

Trex® is a high-performance composite material that’s specifically designed for use in the construction of outdoor decks. In today’s post, decking and roofing contractor ABM Services & Renovations shares an overview of the benefits of this exceptional decking material.


4 Advantages of Trex® Decking Material


  1. Looks Beautiful and Natural — Woodgrain and the occasional streaks typical of natural wood are difficult to replicate. This is why you see composite products that obviously look like imitation wood grain, with an unfortunate, “plasticky” appearance. Thanks to advanced manufacturing procedures, Trex features a more refined wood grain appearance and streaks that look natural, even up close. It’s available in dozens of colors that eliminate the need to apply (and reapply) stain.

  1. Eco-Friendly — Composites are usually made from virgin plastic with less than half made of recycled content. Comparatively, Trex is made from 95% recycled material, including wood, sawdust and plastic film, which makes it one of the most eco-friendly building materials in the industry. As a roofing contractor, we have handled many types of building materials over the years, but none with as high recycled content as Trex.

  1. Requires Minimal Maintenance — The reason many homeowners put up with materials that obviously look artificial is that they require minimal maintenance. With Trex, you don’t have to make a compromise between looks, performance and maintenance requirements–you can have it all. Thanks to its protective outer shell, Trex can be cleaned using a simple solution of soap and water, resists fades and stains and won’t warp, crack or split. The outer surface can also resist normal scratches caused by chair legs, boots or your pets’ claws.

  1. Has Exceptional Warranty Coverage — Trex is warranted not to rot, warp, crack or be damaged by termites. All Trex decking and railing products are covered by a 25-year limited residential warranty, plus an additional 25-year limited residential fade and stain warranty.
