Trex Vs Pressure Treated Wood
While pressure-treated wood has its merits, and has long been the go-to product for new and replacement decks, Trex outshines it in terms of durability, maintenance, and environmental impact.
Pressure-treated wood, while a popular and cost-effective choice, is susceptible to rot over time, necessitating regular maintenance. Splintering is also a potential issue with wood decks, posing safety concerns and requiring vigilance in upkeep. In the battle against insects, pressure-treated wood offers some resistance, but the efficacy diminishes over years, leaving the deck vulnerable.
Trex stands out as more resilient against common concerns like rotting, splintering, and insect damage. Engineered with a blend of recycled wood fibers and high-performance polymers, Trex decks exhibit exceptional resistance to decay and insect infestations, ensuring longevity without the need for constant upkeep.
