Since originating the concept of composite decking nearly 30 years ago, Trex Company has focused on continually elevating the category. And, the company is doing just that with a selection of high-performance, low-maintenance decking options at price points designed to appeal to an even broader spectrum of customers.
The latest addition to the Trex portfolio, Enhance® decking provides contractors and homeowners with a premium quality, lower-cost deck board. Offering all the performance benefits that industry professionals and consumers have come to expect from Trex, Enhance boards feature a distinctive profile that uses less material and contributes to its lower cost. The boards are also lighter weight and easy to handle, making them ideal for DIYers.
Designed to compete more directly with wood, Enhance provides a wood-alternative decking option for budget-minded consumers who may have previously eliminated composite from their consideration set due to price. By engineering cost out of the equation, Trex – and its trade partners – have the ability to capture an even larger share of the decking market.
Trex Enhance decking is available in lengths of 3.66, 4.88 and 6.1 meters with boards offered in two color collections – Basics and Naturals. Enhance Basics features three proven and popular monochromatic shades, Clam Shell, Beach Dune and Saddle. Enhance Naturals boards come in five contemporary, multi-tonal hues that resemble the streaked look of natural wood, including Foggy Wharf, Rocky Harbor, Calm Water, Toasted Sand and Coastal Bluff. Both collections feature the authentic charm and textural variations of wood, without the hassles of ongoing maintenance and upkeep.
For those seeking unparalleled performance and elevated aesthetics, Trex’s flagship Transcend® collection continues to reign as the industry’s best and most durable composite decking. Designed to outperform wood, as well as other composites and PVC for decades, Transcend boards feature a proprietary nine-element surface formulation that protects the boards from scratching and staining, and produces a natural, wood-like grain pattern with a lustrous satin finish that feels comfortable underfoot.
While Transcend decking boasts the beauty of tropical hardwoods, it bears none of the environmental stresses associated with imported and endangered wood species. In fact, like all Trex wood-alternative products, Trex Transcend decking is made from a minimum of 95% recycled content and is certified by the Verification of Attributes Report (VAR-1011) from the International Code Council Evaluation Service® (ICC-ES).
Transcend deck boards are available in 3.66, 4.88 and 6.1 meter lengths with two profile options – with a square edge or a serrated (grooved) edge. Serrated boards accommodate the Trex Hideaway® Hidden Fastening System, which allows for a smooth, unfettered finish, free of nails and other visible fasteners. The system’s clips create a seamless look with no screws or screw holes to interrupt the smooth texture and comfortable feel of the decking.
The Transcend collection includes eight premium shades – three monochromatic Earth Tones and five multi-tonal Tropical hues. Trex recently refreshed the Earth Tones with a new high-definition grain pattern for enhanced aesthetics. This latest enhancement is just another example of Trex’s drive to continuously improve upon what’s already considered the best in the composite decking category.
Backed by 25-year Limited General and Fade & Stain warranties, all Trex decking products resist fading, staining, scratching and mold – and won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter. Upkeep is hassle-free and requires no sanding, staining or sealing. Just an occasional cleaning with soap and water is all that is needed to keep a Trex deck looking like new for decades.
