WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR GOOD, BETTER AND BEST PRODUCT LINES?

Trex high-performance decking and railing products combine low-maintenance upkeep and designminded style—all backed by our 25-year Limited Residential Warranty.

Beyond that, Trex offers a variety of high-performance railing choices to meet different levels of style, performance and affordability.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TREX EARLY-GENERATION AND THE NEWER, HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPOSITE DECKING?

Understanding the differences between early-generation Trex decking and new high-performance Trex decking is an important factor in understanding what to expect from different kinds of decking. You'll notice a few key differences in performance and longevity, but there is one benefit both products have in common: Each is made from 95% recycled materials.

Why are composite outdoor living products better than wood?

When it comes to composite vs. wood, there's more to the story than the upfront price. While wood may be cheaper on day one, it could end up costing you far more by day 365 (and well beyond). Composite means quality, beauty and minimal maintenance, saving you time, money and everything that comes with a call to the handyman. Plus, the high-performance composite shell of composite decking resists rotting, staining and cracking.

How long will a Trex deck last?

Composite decking typically consists of some type of plastic material, such as polyethylene and/or polyvinyl chloride, and wood particles. A good composite deck should come with at least 25 year warranty from manufacturer.

Do composite decks look like plastic?

Composite decking has come a long way in the past five years. Today’s composites reflect the beauty of natural and exotic hardwoods, complete with subtle streaking and varied wood grain patterns.
