TREX Transcends

Trex is another engineered decking option that we recommend. Trex Transcend is a composite material made of recycled plastic shopping bags, reclaimed wood and post-manufacturing sawdust.  Because of the high content of organic material it has a natural looking finish that is less shiny than PVC.  Although very durable and long-lasting, composite decking is not quite as stain, fade and scratch resistant as PVC.    It does cost about 15% less than PVC which can make a significant difference on a large deck project.

Trex also offers a railing system to complement their decking but I have to say there are much better options out there.  We will talk about low maintenance railing systems in our next article.

Trex has also just introduced a new deck lighting line which looks intriguing but I have not researched it well enough to make comment here.
