Why are TREX Products Better for Decking than Wood?December 27th, 2021 | by Admin Deck Experts | in Decking Materials | 0
When building a new deck, or rebuilding an existing deck, one choice you will have to make is what material to go with. While wood has long been the material of choice, Trex composite decking is becoming more and more popular, and for good reason.
Why are Trex products better for decking than wood?
First, Trex decking has very little maintenance compared to wood. With Trex, the only maintenance required is the occasional washing, easily achieved with a soft brush, some soap, and a hose. Compare this to wood, which requires much more care to be properly maintained including sanding, staining or painting.
Second, Trex composite decking ages much better than wood. Trex products come with a 25 year guarantee that it will continue to look great year after year. Wood, on the other hand, even with proper maintenance, tends to crack and become discoloured with age, looking old and worn out.
Finally, Trex composite decking is environmentally friendly. The material used is made up of 95% recycled materials, helping to keep these out of landfills.
Trex decking is available in a wide range of colours, that mimic the look and appearance of natural and stained woods. There is sure to be a colour that works with all styles.
For your next decking project, consider going with a Trex deck. Deck Experts are able to help you plan and build a deck that you will not only have for years to come, but be proud to show off.
