It's Outdoor Living, Elevated
Trex is the world’s #1 decking brand and the inventor of wood-alternative composite decking. From the beginning we’ve been committed to helping you create a low-maintenance, high-performance backyard retreat that can handle the outdoors without depleting them, and will do so for decades. Because your weekends should be spent relaxing on your deck, not repairing it.
Since 1996, Trex has invented, defined and perfected the composite deck category with a lineup of low-maintenance, high-performance, eco-friendly products that fundamentally change the way we live outdoors. It's no wonder so many happy deck owners consider Trex the best decking material.
We make Trex® eco-friendly composite decks from an innovative blend of 95% recycled wood and plastic film—that’s almost the whole thing. On top of that, our company uses some of the most earth-friendly manufacturing processes in the country, reclaiming factory waste and eliminating the use of harmful chemicals. The fact is, being green is in our DNA. We've been this way for more than 20 years, well before green was a buzzword. Because in the end, all of us want to look out on our decks and know that we’ve done our part.
Trex vs Wood
Everyone loves the natural look of wood but hates all the painting, staining and sealing. Wood decks of all types, including pressure-treated wood, ipe, cedar or redwood, require extensive upkeep. Trex was designed with the beauty of wood decking, but not all the maintenance. Our high-performance, eco-friendly composite boards withstand years of sun, sleet and snow, keeping their rich color. Through it all, we have never felled a single tree. So when comparing composite decking vs. wood, there’s no competition.
Trex works along with other U.S. Green Building Council members to transform the way building and communities are designed, built and operated with the goal of creating environmentally and socially responsible spaces that improve the quality of life.
