The Pros of TREX

 

There are many reasons why TREX Composite Decking has become such a popular decking material. Here are some of the pros of using TREX:

 

TREX is one of the most durable decking materials on the market. It resists fading, staining, and scratching, and it is also moisture-resistant. This makes it a great choice for homeowners who want a deck that will last for many years. It is made up of up to 95% recycled material so it is more environmentally friendly than other decking materials. Additionally, TREX Composite Decking does not need to be stained or sealed like some wood decks, and it can be easily cleaned with a hose.

 

It is also aesthetically pleasing: TREX Composite Decking comes in many different colors and styles so you can find the perfect look for your home. It also has a natural grain that makes it look like real wood.

 

However, there are also some cons to using TREX:

 

The initial cost of installing TREX Composite Decking used to be MUCH higher than other decking materials, but less so now that the cost of lumber has skyrocketted since 2020.

 

Additionally, TREX Composite Decking can become quite slippery when wet so it is important to use caution when walking on it in inclement weather. If you live in an area with severe weather conditions, TREX Composite Decking may not be the best choice for you.

 

Despite these cons, TREX Composite Decking is a great choice for decking material because it is durable, easy to care for, and aesthetically pleasing. TREX Composite Decking is perfect for homeowners who want the look and feel of wood without all of the maintenance.
