Since 1996, Trex literally invented the composite decking category. Not only was Trex composite decking the first major composite decking manufacturer to come onto the scene, but since then, it has perfected the notion of composite decks using innovative technology. As always with Trex, this innovative technology maintains Trex’s deep commitment to being environmentally responsible. Newer-generation Trex deck boards (Trex Select, Trex Enhance, Trex Transcend) are manufactured with a high-performance shell that wraps around the board to shield it from the elements. While doing this, it provides superior resistance to fading, staining, scratching and mold. In addition to improved performance, the shell technology offers many benefits that make these three lines incredibly desirable among homeowners, architects, and contractors alike. Here are just a few advancements of the new generation of Trex composite decking:
*** These lines possess easy maintenance: They require only an occasional cleaning with soap and water or a presser washer.
*** Newer-generation Trex offers enhanced aesthetics: richer, long-lasting color palettes and natural wood grain patterns are a staple of every line and color!
*** These lines offer incremental warranty protection: Trex stands by a 25-year limited residential fade and stain warranty on their decking lines.
Organized in a “good, better, best” scheme, the three lines of newer-generation Trex surpass natural wood and other composite decking in a side by side comparison based on three very important categories:
Beauty. Every line and color of Trex features deep grain patterns that mimic the look and feel of natural wood. In addition, the stain finish resists scratching and leaves not glare or artificial shine. It can also bend to create patterns and curves in your design. This material can also be fastened using an easy hidden fastening system.
Perfomance. The shell technology used in the manufacturing of this material resists temperature changes. It will keep its shape well, and it will not cup or warp due to even the harshest weather. It resists mold and termites as well thanks to this innovative advancement.
Maintenance. Trex has always been incredibly easy to saw, cut, and screw. So much so, that all three lines of newer-generation Trex can be installed with traditional tools. Because of its protective shell technology, Trex does not need sanding, painting, or staining. Finally, care and cleaning is as simple as soap and water!
The most important facet of Trex has remained a constant since 1996. It has remained an important green product within the building materials industry. Composed of 95% recycled materials, Trex makes a positive impact in the preservation of the natural resources we all prize so much.
