Trex Designer Deck Contest

Win An Extreme Trex Deck Makeover

Trex DeckingTrex® – the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing, fencing and trim products – is giving three lucky homeowners the chance to win brand new outdoor living spaces outfitted with beautiful, low-maintenance Trex decking and railing.  Each winner also will enjoy a professional consultation from one of three nationally-known designers – John Loecke, Eddie Ross or Jeffery McCullough.

Composite Decking Vs Wood Decking

Over the years the composite or wood-alternative decking market has seen great improvements. I’ve come to realize that these products offer a far superior decking surface compared to wood. If fact, my own home has Cambara Decking that I hope to replace at some point in the near future due to the significant time it requires for maintenance.

As you can see from these photos Trex has some really beautiful decking options. It’s definitely possible to get the looks of fine wood decking with products like Trex. The beauty comes when you won’t be staining/sealing your deck every year to keep it looking beautiful!
