Trex - Composite Materials

View Trex

Trex

A wood polymer composite deck material made from reclaimed plastic and wood fiber. Trex is a relatively maintenance free decking. 

Trex has been used extensively over the years in playground equipment as well as pool decks and industrial flooring.  

Highly resistant to moisture Trex comes in several colors, Natural, Winchester Grey and Madeira. Cost usually runs between that of a pressure treated deck and a clear cedar deck.


Performance Characteristics

A splinter-free material with the workability of wood, it won't check, split or rot. Trex can be routed, sanded, nailed, drilled and even turned on a lathe.. 

Because of the wood content that's contained in Trex, natural color shifts do occur. Trex will weather to it's final color after 8 to 12 weeks of exposure to sunlight and rain. Natural will go from a tan color and fade to light gray. Winchester Grey will weather to a driftwood gray and Madeira will remain a reddish brown.  


Installation

Trex may shrink and expand slightly. Generally the preferred method is to install boards with a small gap between each board. The space between each board should be small enough to avoid the possibility of a women's high heal or other small objects from falling between the boards.  In most situations a 3/16 inch gap works well.

Trex is not intended for use as load-bearing post, beam and joist or any other load bearing member. For best results, see current manufacturers installations instructions.


Summary

Trex is a good product for people who want an alternative to a wood deck.  Good for around pool decks or where low maintenance is desirable.
