What makes Composite Decking more durable than wood decks?

The material used to make Trex decks are a composite of recycled materials, such as sawdust and reclaimed wood, as well as reused plastic. The process keeps more than 400 million pounds of plastic out of landfills, and repurposes it in a sustainable way, and makes for a reliably durable decking material.


How will my deck fare in the Colorado sun?

Composite materials have a built-in protective shell that will guard against fading and provide stain resistance for many years. Redwood decks are made with the most durable natural material that works with weather and sun to resist damage.


Do I need to paint or stain my Composite deck?

The tough shell that is part of the Trex design means that you never have to paint or stain your deck. The synthetic cap will ensure that your deck looks great, year after year.


What is the best time of year to build a deck?
