Trex® Composite Deck Boards vs. Wood

The Hassle-Free Alternative To Wood Decking

A Trex® composite deck is ready whenever you want to use it. No sanding, staining, or painting here—a little soap and water or a quick power washing is all the maintenance Trex requires. Wood decks take constant care. Trex composite decking is more durable and longer lasting. When you look at all Trex has to offer, wood decking begins to feel like signing up for a second job.

The hassles that come with wood

Redwood, Pressure-Treated Lumber and Cedar

Needs seasonal painting, staining or sealing

Becomes a safety hazard when it rots, splits and splinters

Fades and stains easily, showing every spill and scuff

Insects can cause extensive structural damage

Contributes to deforestation, cutting down trees that local wildlife depend on for food and shelter

Wood decking doesn't age well

Whereas Trex guarantees that after 25 years our decking will still look and feel great.
