In 1996, Trex created a new wood-thermoplastic composite deck boards. The patented process for creating these composite boards uses wood and plastic waste products combined with a binding agent.
These gorgeous boards for decks, docks, and other outdoor projects actually keep 400 million pounds of waste from landfills annually. In fact, Trex uses over 140,000 plastic shopping bags in just one 500 sq. ft. of decking, making Trex one of the nation’s largest plastic film recyclers.
Trex boards may mimic wood, but they also have their own unique style and beauty.
Also, Trex composite decking boards don’t rot or fade. When properly installed and maintained, Trex decking lasts longer than traditional wood decking.
