LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW TREX IS BETTER
Trex boards vs. Wood decking
If you are thinking about investing in Trex for your upcoming deck-building project, you are probably wondering how this composite brand compares to traditional wood. While wood decks can be beautiful, they generally require a significant amount of maintenance.
Whether you choose pressure-treated lumber boards, cedar boards, or tropical wood boards, you will have to regularly seal, paint, or stain your deck, in addition to checking for damage from pests like termites and woodpeckers. Trex is designed to provide the look of wood without the upkeep, making it the best of both worlds.
- Ability to withstand all types of weather, including snow, extreme heat, and various forms of precipitation.
- Easy to clean with gentle soap and water
- Crafted from 95% recycled materials; does not lead to deforestation
- 25-year limited residential warranty
- Does not rot or splinter
- Does not lose colorfastness
Trex vs. Early Composite Decking
Today’s Trex deck boards are head and shoulders above early forms of composite decking. And, the company should know – they’ve been leading the charge in this industry for over 20 years. New Trex designs offer fade and stain resistant properties for decades, a far cry from early product lines.
Trex vs. PVC Decking
PVC deck boards are often compared to composite styles because they, too, are not wood and can, therefore, resist rot, splintering, mold growth, and termites. However, PVC isn’t nearly as green as Trex, and it is not crafted from 95% recycled materials.
Furthermore, PVC decking has several key downsides, such as:
- Often succumb to “chalking”
- Prone to expanding and contracting with temperature changes, leaving gaps in your deck
- Not stain-resistant against sunblock, insect repellant, and other common outdoor products
The bottom line.
The bottom line is that Trex is simply the best decking choice on the market today for consumers who want to reduce their environmental impact while giving their families the most beautiful, low-maintenance decking option on the market right now.
