Trex VS Timber
The natural look of timber is loved by almost everyone. However, no one enjoys the maintenance of wooden decking. A lot of time is consumed painting, staining and sealing timber decking. This includes pressure treated timber, ipe, redwood and cedar decking. They all require extensive upkeep to get the best out of them.
Unlike timber, Trex composite boards can withstand years of all types of weather. They maintain their rich colour come rain or shine. All this is achieved without ever having to fell a single tree making Trex composite decking eco-friendly too.
Trex was the first company to actually offer composite decking and is widely credited with creating the entire industy. Over the course of the last two decades Trex has evolved their product by engineering into their products the Trex weather-resistant shell. Arguably the most significant breakthrough in composite technology since its invention. Prior to the Trex weather-resistant shell, early composites would fade and stain over time in a way that modern high quality Trex composite decking simply do not. Trex’s weather-resistant shell doesn’t just last for a year or two but is made to last for 25 years.
Trex composite decks are wrapped in a high-performance protectant shell that resists fading, staining, rot and splitting better than anything else out there, ensuring your Trex patio will look as fresh as your garden for years to come.
- Trex’s composite core is made of 95% recycled sawdust and plastic packaging, providing you with unparalleled durability while also being eco-friendly.
- Trex’s protective shell covers the board on three sides, offering superior weather protection where you need it most while preserving the natural wood look for years to come.
- Grooved edges allow for two different installation options: composite deck screws or secret fixings for a smooth finish with no visible screws
- Trex boards are as easy to install as hardwood, with no special tools required
Trex VS. PVC
When looking for a low-maintenance timber alternative some people choose PVC for their composite decking needs. Whilst PVC just like composite decking can resist rot, termites and mould it is nowhere near as environmentally friendly as Trex composite decking. They are produced primarily from virgin plastic unlike Trex’s ultra-green composite boards that are made with 95% recycled materials via an eco-friendly manufacturing process.
