DECKING PRODUCTS INCLUDE:
Designed with lasting beauty, incredible durability and easy maintenance, there’s no compromising with high-performance composite decking. We’ve paired Trex against other types of decking for a head-to-head comparison that proves Trex outdecks, outlasts and outperforms the rest. Go ahead and see which decking material is best for you!
Trex Vs. Wood
Everyone loves the natural look of wood but hates all the painting, staining and sealing. Wood decks of all types, including pressure-treated wood, ipe, cedar or redwood, require extensive upkeep. Trex was designed with the beauty of wood decking, but not all the maintenance. The high-performance, eco-friendly composite boards withstand years of sun, sleet and snow, keeping their rich color. Through it all, Trex has never felled a single tree. So when comparing composite decking vs. wood, there’s no competition as to which decking material is best.
Whereas Trex is low-maintenance, wood decks:
- Can rot, split, swell, twist and fade
- Crack from insect infestation
- Require annual painting, staining or sealing
- Splinter easily
- Contribute to deforestation

And, thanks to homeowners choosing their boards over wood, they have saved more than 1 million trees since 2015.
The major ingredient of building a new deck is deciding which decking material to use. While every building material has its pros and cons, you should ideally select the material that suits your particular lifestyle and seamlessly matches your home design. Although Cedar wood decking can be pricey, it offers significant benefits to any renovation or new build. And with routine maintenance, a cedar deck maintains its warm color and finish for a long time.
Cedar is popular and aesthetically pleasing in all modern builds. A stunning cedar deck is an attractive selling feature and will hold its resale value when listing a home.
Cedar decking won’t warp and split in a high moisture atmosphere like several other decking materials since it naturally repels moisture.
Additionally, Cedar softwood is naturally resistant to insects and rot; therefore, it doesn’t require potentially toxic chemical treatments.
Cedar decking requires less maintenance than certain other decking materials, an advantage to busy homeowners.
The distinctive color and look of cedar offers a pleasing atmosphere in which to relax and blends in exquisitely with nature.
The aroma of Cedar is truly amazing—much nicer than many man-made decking materials.
Homeowners and builders have the option of staining cedar in any color of their choice, making it ideal to match with an existing building.
Cedar can be left in its natural state and does not require pre-staining. Homeowners who appreciate the natural aesthetic will be pleased with the rustic appearance of an unstained cedar deck.
Resistant to extreme temperatures and harsh weather conditions, property owners can rest easy knowing the durable cedar deck will still look great over the years with regular maintenance.
The variety of grades in cedar decking boards provide a distinct look that will be unique to each build and not look like anyone else’s deck.
Cedar wood is timeless and organically beautiful with a pleasing scent of the great outdoors. The advantages of a Cedar deck are clear and that’s why homeowners and professionals often choose it over and over again. Undoubtedly, a gorgeous cedar deck will deliver years of enjoyment to you and your family and friends in your outdoor living space.
