Trex Composite Decks

Composite decking is a mix of recycled plastic and wood fibers.  The lure of going with a Trex composite deck is enjoying a solution that will last for many years. While composite materials might cost more than wood, there are surely positive trade-offs. fortunately, composite decking is just about free of maintenance and needs no to be stained, sanded, refinished or sealed, EVER!

The benefits of a composite deck over a traditional cedar deck or the popular pressure treated deck is that you don’t ever deal with splinters. You can easily and safely, walk around on it barefoot.  And, not to mention that it surprisingly does not get as hot to the touch. 

The technology advancements made with composite decking products make them amazing options for homeowners that desire to have to do little maintenance to keep it looking clean and new.
