Trex Vs. Timber
Everyone loves the natural look of timber but hates all the painting, staining and sealing. Timber decks of all types, including pressure-treated timber, ipe, cedar or redwood, require extensive upkeep. Trex was designed with the beauty of timber 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. timber, there’s no competition as to which decking material is best.
Whereas Trex is low-maintenance, timber decks:
- Can rot, split, swell, twist and fade
- Crack from insect infestation
- Require annual painting, staining or sealing
- Splinter easily
- Contribute to deforestation
