Decked Out: Examining the Features of Trex® Decks

Introducing Trex Decks

As one of the leading deck manufacturers, Trex takes pride in producing high-caliber, low-maintenance, eco-friendly deck boards. These highly innovative deck boards are known for their lasting beauty and high performance, and have been improving home exteriors since 1996. Time and again, this decking material has proven its superiority.

Compared to Wood

While wood has undeniable charm, it also requires significant ongoing maintenance. Wooden decks simply aren’t ideal for homeowners with busy lives who can’t or don’t want to spend a lot of time and effort on maintenance. Trex offers the beautiful appearance of wood without the costly and time-consuming maintenance. Due to its exceptional durability, a Trex can withstand sun, sleet and snow even without a roofing system over it.

Compared to Early-Generation Composite

It’s true that composite is one of the lowest-maintenance decking materials on the market. However, early-generation composite decks don’t hold a candle to more recent innovations. Trex decks have weather, fade, and stain resistant shells that guarantee optimal performance for 25 years.

Compared to PVC

PVC is resistant to rot, termites and mold. However, it is produced using virgin plastic. Trex decking boards are made with 95% recycled materials. These materials include plastic grocery bags, plastic films and wood fiber waste. On top of that, Trex purchases 300 million pounds of used polyethylene and hardwood sawdust annually. As a leader in the decking material industry, Trex is highly committed to environmental sustainability.

As a residential and commercial roof installation company, ABM Services and Renovations Inc. takes pride in providing excellent workmanship and high-quality products such as Trex decks.
