Do Trex decks stain or mildew? Do Trex decks fade?

There is a lot of bad history and bad press out there on – line. If you don’t know what you are really looking at, it can be very misleading.

Trex is the originator of the composite deck industry and in fact, the original product did have these issues. The product faded relatively quickly. It was easy to stain with the spill of any oil based product. Mildew grew easily due to the porous nature of the design.

Along came the invention of Trex Transcends. This was a vast improvement of the original products that solved the major problems consumers complained about. By engineering a cap stock over the original core of the product, the product now has a 25-year fade warranty in addition to protection from staining. The product is so superior that in the previous 7 years, we literally have no callbacks on Trex. So when you do your research on Trex, make sure you are looking at the Trex Transcends!

4 Reasons you DON’T WANT to use Archadeck

Here are 4 reasons:

1. If you are only interested in the lowest price, as opposed to value, there are many other options. What you are really searching for is not a design consultation but rather a very small operator who may or may not be in business the following year but can meet or beat any price by a large margin.

2. If you don’t care if the project is built to code. This ties back to point number one, if truly do not care about the safety of the project, there are alternative contractor options.

3. If have an insured and licensed contractor is of no value. These two points insure the project will be built correctly and insure that when you resell your home, you do not have additional challenges.

4. If the quality of the materials are not important to you. The quality of the building materials have a wide range of costs associated with them. If this does not matter, there are contractors that regularly shop for inexpensive alternatives.
