Trex decking is built to last

One of the reasons why Trex decking is a great timber deck alternative is because of its durable nature.

No matter what the Great British weather throws at your decking, the outdoor feature will remain looking attractive and new for years to come.

Trex decking is made from composite to resist termites, staining, scratching and mould, and it won’t rot, warp or split in the rain.

Trex decking also has UV stability and resists fading and cracking due to sun exposure so your decking will look stunning all year round.

An easy to maintain feature

Using Trex over timber is a great solution if you want to spend less time maintaining your garden and more time enjoying it.

Due to the impressive durability of Trex, you won’t need to paint or treat it and cleaning is a breeze too.

The decking will only need an occasional clean with soap and water, with no harsh chemicals required.

Trex decking is an eco-friendly choice

Not a single tree has been chopped down through its 20-year manufacturing history for Trex and an astounding 1.5 billion shopping bags have been recycled by them.

The boards are made from a blend of 95 percent recycled plastic and sawdust, making them an authentically sustainable and environmentally friendly solution to decking.

A screw-less finish

Trex decking has a screw-less finish, so there are no visible screws making for a smooth feature as well as a safe one.

You can wander barefoot on your Trex decking and not have to worry about tripping up or getting splinters so you and your whole family, young and old, can enjoy the deck.
