Trex Deck Building for Frederick County and Central Maryland
Discover the Benefits of Trex Composite Decking.
If you want a deck that is virtually maintenance-free, then Trex high-performance composite decking may be the right choice for you. There are many reasons this material is growing in popularity.
Trex decking is strong and resilient. It has the beauty of wood decking, but without all the maintenance. Trex is made from high-performance, eco-friendly composite boards. The material can withstand extreme weather conditions, all while keeping its rich color.
A Trex composite deck requires no sanding, painting or staining. All you need is a little soap and water, and maybe a quick power washing to clean it.
Wood decks require seasonal painting, staining and sealing. Wood also rots, splits and splinters. It fades and stains easily, and insects can cause extensive structural damage.
A Trex composite board is made with 95% recycled materials. A typical 500-square-foot deck contains 140,000 recycled plastic bags. The cost of Trex decking typically runs from $9 to $16 per square foot.
The Trex product design carries a body-weight load across the span of 12 to 16 inches, and a typical deck is designed to support 40 pounds per square foot. You cannot refinish Trex boards; a board must be replaced if it is damaged; and you can’t stain it to cover up fading.
There are three types of Trex to choose from. Trex Enhance, Trex Select and Trex Transcend.
The Enhanced Trex resists scratches better than Select boards, has a more natural appearance, and can be found at Lowes and Home Depot. Trex Select has the lowest grade of scratch resistance and the shallowest grain of the three products. Trex Transcend is the top-of-the-line board from Trex. It has the best scratch resistance, and provides homeowners with many style options.
Have any leftovers?
There are many other outdoor projects you can build with composite decking boards. The material resists moisture and is perfect for planters. You can turn samples or leftover scraps into shelves, benches, chairs or outdoor games. You can also construct siding for a playhouse or build an enclosure for a trash bin.
