Trex provides high-quality composite decking materials. A little soap and water or power wash are all you'll need to do to maintain your new outdoor gathering space. Your deck will keep its beauty for many years when you choose Trex materials.
Trex composite decking is low maintenance, won’t rot and is not susceptible to structural damage from insects. You won’t have to worry about safety hazards as your deck ages because you won’t experience rotting, splinters or warped boards. Plus, thanks to its outstanding finish, it won’t fade or stain.
Trex decking materials are made from a blend of reclaimed wood and plastic film. The manufacturing process does not require harmful chemicals, making it extremely environmentally friendly. The supply chain for Trex products is sustainable, using 95 percent reclaimed materials from U.S. vendors.
Avoid the hassle of staining and sealing your deck regularly. A Trex deck is low-maintenance so that you can spend more time out enjoying your deck than you do cleaning and maintaining it. And even with a low maintenance schedule, your deck will look great for years to come and last longer than a traditional wood deck.
Wood decks generally only last for about 10-15 years. Then you have to go back through the hassle of designing and building your deck all over again. With composite decking, you’ll get many more years of enjoyment out of your deck thanks to its great durability.
I had this company come out to replace my windows and I couldn’t be any happier with the service that was provided. I have 3 young kids running around and the team that did my windows were very patient, friendly, polite and they even cleaned up after themselves. The windows look stunning and it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg! I highly recommend them.
We had a great experience with 2FL on a small re-siding project. They accommodated some requests we had which was appreciated. They were also much more responsive than other siding companies we talked to, which was ultimately why we decided to go with 2FL. For any future siding work we’ll definitely go to them first.
I had a roof replaced and 2FL did an excellent job. It took them 2 days to complete and the roof looks great. Many neighbors have commented on how nice it is. I highly recommend them.
The cost of building a deck varies based on the materials you choose and the size of your deck. Generally, decks cost $30-$60 per square foot. Based on this estimate, most decks range in price from $4,000 to $11,000. It’s best to request a quote from some local contractors to get more information on actual deck costs based on your goals.
Both vinyl and composite decking are artificial materials, which means they don’t rot like wood decks. This means that they are generally lower maintenance for the homeowner. Composite decking looks a lot like real wood but doesn’t require painting or staining. It won’t rot or mold and has a long lifespan. The one setback is that it does scratch somewhat easily and shows sun fade. Vinyl tends to have all the same benefits as composite decking but without fading and scratching issues. The major setback to this decking material is that it is the most expensive option on the market.
Composite decking resists warping, rot, mold and more, making it the most durable decking material. And it’s low maintenance, meaning you can just brush it off each spring and scrub it from time to time to keep it looking great.
Wood decks generally last 10 to 15 years depending on how well the homeowner maintains the deck. Wood requires regular treatments to prevent rotting and mold from taking over and destroying the deck. This is why many people now favor composite decks over wood because they’re lower maintenance and tend to have a longer lifespan.
Adding a deck to your home is no small undertaking or expense. So is it worth it when looking at the resale value of your home? Generally, decks do increase the value of your home and can pay off 100 percent in getting your investment back.
