Why Use Trex in Building Decks

What better way to improve your property than to add a deck to your house? Apart from increasing your outdoor living space, a deck can also help increase the overall resale value of your house. To make it a valuable asset in the future, however, first you have to make sure that it will last long. That can only be possible if it’s made from the highest quality material.

One of the best options you should consider is Trex, a composite material that comes with excellent features. Here are some of the top reasons why you should use Trex instead of wood or other composite materials.

Trex Is Made Out of Recycled Materials

There’s no denying how the advent of composite building materials has helped reduce the use of timber, which are usually harvested from old forests where mature trees can be found. Plus, since composite materials are made from recycled wood and plastic, manufacturers also help reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.

Capped with Protective Shell

The secret to Trex’s durability is the shell that protects it from the elements. This outer layer is designed to imitate the features of real wood. The shells of newer generation of Trex have better resistance against dents, scratches, and stains. They don’t easily warp and fade even without maintenance. This means your deck will look as good as new for many years.

Cleaning Is Easy

Unlike wood that requires a special cleaning and sealing method, Trex decking is very easy to clean. You just have to scrub it with soap and water to remove the dust and grime buildup on its surface. Doing just this will keep your deck in fantastic condition for up to 25 years.

Don’t let inexperienced builders build your deck. Hire a trusted contractor to ensure that the deck will be installed properly using the highest quality materials. Work with one that has been building decks with Trex for many years.
