Resurface Your Old Crappy Deck With Trex


RESURFACING YOUR DECK WITH TREX® IS EASY TO DO, AND THE RESULTS ARE EASY TO LOVE.

If the boards on your existing deck are looking a bit worn – and the foundation and deck framing system are sound – you can simply replace the walking surfaces and deck railings with Trex decking and railing. It’s an ideal way to save time and money, while enjoying all of Trex’s benefits over wood.

RESURFACE YOUR DECK IN DAYS. ENJOY IT FOR DECADES.

Isn’t it time to scrap that warped, splintery, faded wood? Replace it with Trex high-performance composite decking and enjoy long-lasting, low-maintenance beauty for decades to come. After all, your time outdoors shouldn’t be spent sanding, scraping and staining – it should be spent sitting on your deck enjoying the view.
