A beautiful deck can make your home more inviting, more aesthetically appealing and more enjoyable for guests. It also makes a great place to unwind after a long day or just sit and enjoy nature.

A deck is also a great addition to your home’s value and curb appeal—two very important benefits if you’re hoping to sell in the next few years.

If you’re in the market for a new deck, but aren’t sure what materials, style or contractor to choose, you might be feeling a little intimidated by all the options.

Today, we’re going to explore a few key reasons why a Trex® deck is such a great option for a beautiful, versatile, easy-to-care-for deck.

Trex® is the world’s largest manufacturer of wood alternative decking and railing materials—and they’re revolutionizing the way homeowners enjoy and maintain a home deck. So why should you consider Trex® for your deck?4

Reason #1: Trex ® Decking Won’t Rot

Natural wood has plenty of benefits, but for many homeowners, maintaining a natural wood deck is a tall order. An unmaintained natural wood deck can retain moisture and eventually get dry rot—a condition caused by fungi that grows due to the excess moisture. Dry rot will cause the lumber on a deck to decay and eventually crumble, leaving an eyesore and a very expensive repair bill in its wake.

Trex® decking is made from the highest-quality composite materials that have been carefully processed to resist dry rot, warping and splintering. If you want a deck that will stay beautiful for longer, a Trex® deck is a great option.

Reason #2: Trex® Decking is Durable and Low-Maintenance

Have you ever heard a neighbor or friend complaining about stripping, sanding and staining their deck? Or paying someone a ton of money to do it? Does it seem like your friends with natural wood decks are constantly cleaning or repairing their decks just to keep them in decent shape?

A Trex® deck is a different kind of experience.

Trex® decking is made of materials that won’t grow mold, change colors or deteriorate in certain weather conditions. These decks maintain their looks and shape for years, requiring very little maintenance and fewer repair costs.

Reason #3: Trex® Decking is Environmentally Friendly

If you’re environmentally conscious, the idea of building an entire deck out of lumber can feel irresponsible. But Trex® decking is made of nearly 100% recycled materials, so you can still get a deck you love and feel great about your decision at the end of the day.

In fact, Trex® was recently honored for being the “greenest” decking manufacturer. Plus, the company is committed to setting the standard for eco-friendly outdoor materials.

If you’re considering building a deck, but are scared of the maintenance costs, repairs and environmental impact, Trex® decking could be the answer to your fears.
