What makes trex composite decking better than wood?

When researching the best materials to build your dream decking, there are two main alternatives on the market: composite decking and wood. Let’s explore the advantages and disadvantages of each option.


There are many advantages to building a Trex deck:

  • Trex is world-famous for the durability of its new-generation boards, thanks to their protective shell which covers the composite board underneath. The high-performance boards withstand weather conditions much better than wood – come scorching sun or pouring rain your decking will remain good as new, so you can enjoy your outdoor zone for longer. Trex decks are also mould and mildew-proof and termite-proof.
  • Trex decks are designed to be low maintenance, with no sanding, staining or painting required to keep them looking good. They can be cleaned with a power washer or simply with soap and water.
  • With 20 fade-resistant colours available, Trex decks are ideal for any project concept. Trex’s 25 year warranty also covers your deck against fading.
  • A great eco-friendly alternative, Trex decking is made of 95% recycled materials – reclaimed wood, sawdust and plastic – a much higher percentage than other composite decks. Every 500 square foot Trex deck contains more than 140,000 recycled plastic bags.

The main disadvantage is the price of a Trex deck, which is more expensive than wood. However, once you factor in the continual maintenance required for wood decking, the initial cost of Trex decking balances out. Another downside is that certain Trex boards are up to 70% heavier than their wood counterparts. Looking up ‘Trex deck installers near me’ is your best bet, as the professional masters will do all the heavy lifting for you!


Wood decking is very high maintenance, and requires constant care to avoid not just aesthetic concerns but also safety hazards.

  • Wood scratches and stains easily and tends to splinter, warp and crack.
  • To keep it looking good, wood decking needs annual staining, repainting, cleaning or resealing.
  • Weather damage or insect damage can mean that the decking boards need replacement.
  • Whilst wood may seem like the eco-friendly alternative due to its natural materials, wood decking actually contributes to deforestation.


If you would like to build a Trex deck, there are three new-generation collections to browse depending on your budget and preferences:

  • Trex Transcend
  • Trex Enhance
  • Trex Select

Questions & Answers

  • Trex Transcend is Trex’s top-of-the-range series. Transcend boards have a deep wood-grain pattern, three-side shell protection against the elements, and are offered in a range of eight colours in two styles to suit any project you have in mind. The Premium Tropical collection includes Havana Gold, Island Mist, Lava Rock, Spiced Rum, Tiki Torch, and the Classic Earth Tones range consists of Gravel Path, Rope Swing, and Vintage Lantern. Transcend boards are available in 1 or 2-inch thickness.

  • Trex Enhance comes in two grades: Enhance Naturals and Enhance Basics. Boards in the Enhance collection are scalloped and lightweight in comparison to Transcend or Select decking, so if you plan to fit your Trex deck yourself (rather than find a builder near you) then the Enhance range is probably your best bet. Bear in mind that Enhance decking only comes in a 1-inch thickness.

  • If you’re looking for an authentic wood-grain aesthetic then this is the ideal mid-range collection for you. The natural, muted colours of these high-performance boards include Coastal Bluff, Foggy Harbour, Rocky Wharf and Toasted Sand.

  • For quality and low-maintenance boards at a lower price, Trex Enhance Basics is a great option – this is Trex’s most affordable collection. However, there are only three colours of board in this collection: Beach Dune, Clam Shell and Saddle.

  • Trex Select is perfect for those who want a luxury look and stylish outdoor zone on a budget. The quality of Trex Select’s mid-range boards does not match that of Trex Transcend and is slightly more prone to scratching, but is covered by Trex’s 25 year warranty regardless. There are five colours in the Select line-up – Madeira, Pebble Grey, Saddle, Winchester Grey and Woodland Brown – and you can choose from 1 or 2-inch thickness boards.

Delta Decks did a beautiful job on our backyard deck and patio. Our old deck was in dire need of a rebuild and refresh. Elgi was great in getting the project started and Dimitri and his team were amazing to work with throughout the project. They were extremely customer focused and detail oriented, even suggesting improvements that we had not considered. I would highly recommend this company.

Delta Decks replaced my very worn old wood deck with a mineral based/pvc ‘Deckorators’ product, color ‘Costa’. Finding a taupe color was a challenge but this came close to the rest of the wood decks I still have and I did not like the grays of most other products. They did an excellent job.

I am very satisfied with the improvements that Delta Decks made to my 12 year old deck. From my first contact with Elgi, the project manager ,to the final clean up of the jobsite I could not ask for better treatment. All my pre job questions were thoroughly answered and the advice given improved the final look of my deck. The 3 man job crew was terrific. Each of them was very professional and very conscientious. They made me feel that they wanted me to be very satisfied with their work. They answered any questions I had and they did a very good job of cleaning up before they left. A job well done.

This review has been a long time coming. We had Elgi and team come in on September 2021 and after some talks about designs and materials we ended up going with a Fiberon deck. His crew was polite, neat and worked very quickly. The deck looks beautiful and the lighting on the stairs really compliments the design. Thanks so much Elgi & team, It was a pleasure working with you!

Recently had a very pleasant interaction with the team at Delta Decks. I am planning to build a pool deck and Alex is handling the entire process with a great attention to detail. I have very specific needs for installers, and Alex was easy to work with, professional and delivered things on time. I am confident the project will be done impeccably and on an agreed price.

Elgi and his team were wonderful! Elgi is very knowledgeable and he didn't try to upsell us. He understood our needs, gave us good advice and we didn't feel pressured. He was very responsive and accommodating. The craftsmanship on the deck is excellent and we can't be more happy with how it turned out. Covid had caused some delays but the project was still completed within a reasonable time. Overall we were very happy using Delta Decks.

We have used Delta Decks to build a number of our decks. They work with Ipe decking, composite decks. Very attentive to details, they obtain permits and finish the job on time and on budget. Highly recommend.

We are very happy with our new deck completed by Delta decks. From the first consultation with Elgi, our project manager we were very impressed with the professionalism and advice we received for the initial design of the deck. We then went to their spectacular showroom where we were able to pick from the several different options of colors and materials. The deck was completed with high attention to detail, and excellent workmanship. The two carpenters, Alex and Alex completed the job on time and on budget with no issues whatsoever. Several design changes were suggested along the way, and constant contact by Elgi ensured the final project was better than what we could have ever imagined. Their price was also very reasonable, after consulting with several deck builders we're so glad we went with Delta decks and highly recommend them!
