It seems like every homeowner wants a beautiful deck to call their own, but traditional decks can be high maintenance. Without proper care, traditional wood decks–and even decks made of treated wood–can be short lived. This is especially true in the Vancouver area, where precipitation is continuous throughout the year and wood requires constant protection in order to remain structurally sound.
That’s why composite decking (Trex Decking) is so desirable. Composite decking has superb rot resistance, even in climates with regular rain like Vancouver. If you’re a homeowner seeking the right decking material for your property, composite decking could be the solution to your problem.
What Is Composite Decking?
Composite decking looks like standard decking, but it’s made from a combination of wood and plastic that has been dyed and molded into the shape of a wooden board.
Why Composite Decking?
From a homeowner’s standpoint, the advantages of composite decking are numerous.
- Eco-friendly. Composite wood decking requires no trees to be cut down for its creation, which makes it environmentally friendly.
- Low-maintenance. Unlike traditional deck material, which must be resealed on a biannual basis, composite decking requires no sealing, no staining and no heavy maintenance.
- Color-fast. Whereas traditional deck material will fade in the sun, composite decking is color-fast and will resist fading, even with years of exposure to UV rays.
How Do You Take Care of Composite Decking?
Composite decking requires very little regular maintenance. In fact, water and a long-handled brush are all you need to clean Trex decking. Simply dip the long-handled brush into the water, then use the brush to scrub away dirt and grime. You can also sweep the decking between washings, which is often a good idea in the fall when leaves and organic debris litter the surface of the deck.
Trex Rises Above the Rest
Trex is the industry leader in composite decking. By offering more products and better quality materials, it outshines and out-performs the competition.

Composite Decking Beautifies Homes in Vancouver
