Composites can be used to make some very striking pieces like this flower box
made from Trex decking.

Trex deck floor - composites are carpenter friendly - but always check out a weathered composite before you buy it!

This view of the composite deck shows off the diagonal Trex decking.

 

Looking back, we see another view of the herringbone Trex decking.

Composites do a great job of making deck accessories like benches, too. (And no nasty splinters in the you know where.) This bench is made from the Trex composite decking.

This sunken octagon seating area is a real touch of class. Use our Online Deck Cost Calculator to determine the cost of a composite deck and compare it to pressure treated and Ipe.

Composites like Trex are low, low maintenance
Composites like Trex™ and Geo Deck make for easy living.

The Designer of this deck (Mike French) has a Design & Build service offered through Virginia Decking & Remodeling in which he can custom design a deck for
the DIYer or for your Builder… or his firm can use one of their experienced Deck Builders to build your project.

Trex decking is advertised as a low maintenance composite material made from reclaimed plastic and hardwood fibers. It cuts, nails, screws, drills, routs and sands just like wood so it is very carpenter friendly.  Unfortunately, like 99% of the other composites available, Trex is a “wood flour” based composite. And time is not kind to wood flour based composites. See the Class Action suit against Trex for reasons*. This is why we can no longer recommend Trex decking or products. Click here for previous photos of this beautiful composite deck(Isn’t it refreshing when a business “tells it like it is” and gives you the whole scoop?) However, we have discovered one composite that is NOT “wood flour” based and is not subject to the same problems. GeoDeck.

*The owner of this deck called me on 5/16/05 to get a bid on additional work. During our conversation I asked about the condition of his Trex decking (it has now been only five years). He said it had deteriorated so badly that Trex has agreed to pay the full labor and materials to replace all of it. I know what I am talking about… go with GeoDeck.
