Making a big investment in your home is a big deal, and we absolutely recommend considering your deck materials very carefully. There is an incredible variety of options available to you, and each one offers different values in maintenance, durability, and beauty. Paul has high expectations for the material he uses, and Trex Transcend is one of the best:
- Low Maintenance: This is a big one and one of the most important factors. There’s no such thing as an absolute zero-maintenance material, but Trex is as low as it gets. Just give it a surface wash, like you would your car. No problem, and no time wasted on grueling annual sanding, staining and sealing.
- Durability: A Trex Transcend deck is a lifetime investment that in 25 years, you can expect to look as beautiful as the day it was installed. Making the extra investment in Trex Elevations stable steel framing will make it last even longer.
- Beauty: Composite lumber products have come a long way over the years, and today’s Trex Transcend line is stunning, coloured and textured to capture the beauty of wood without the level of maintenance or risk for rot. With a variety of colours and lines of lighting, stairs and railings designed especially for pairing with Trex decking, the possibilities are endless.
- Property Value: Home buyers don’t want to inherit maintenance issues with their prospective home. With a traditional wood deck, it’s not likely adding to the value of your home, especially if it’s getting on in years. Even the best-maintained wood deck will eventually need to be replaced. Trex Transcend can take a beating and its low maintenance factor, if combined with a stellar design, will often add more to your property value than you spent on your design and deck!
