When investing in a home project like this, a tried-and-true guidepost makes a lot of sense: relying on a name you trust. Leading brands are leaders for a reason – with everything from quality and durability to enviable style – and no one knows that better than the pros in the field. So when it comes time to build a new deck, it’s time to consider one more decision: what would the experts use?
Fortunately there are pools of industry professionals committed to assigning awards every year to let us know exactly what they recommend. According to Paul Tourbaf, group president of residential construction at Hanley Wood and contributing specialist at Builder Magazine, Trex is worthy of its recent industry recognition. Sweeping the magazine’s awards season, and ranking highest in quality, Trex is now widely acknowledged as America’s first choice for deck boards, railings, lights and other premium outdoor living products.
It’s no small accomplishment when a deck brand is prized by builders and buyers alike. But when that brand introduces new designs, all the better. In addition to the Builder Magazine accolades, Trex earned six Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) from another publication, Design Journal, including recognition for Trex® Outdoor Lighting™, Aluminum Gates and Spiral Stairs, as well as our two newest decking colors, Trex Transcend® in Island Mist and Havana Gold. Because Trex offers so many decking colors, as well as many matching finishing touches like railing, lighting and fascia, pergolas, storage and more, Trex decks deliver an entire experience worthy of the name, and the much-appreciated recognition that goes with it.
Founded in 1996 on green principles, Trex’s award from Green Builder Media just last month confirms our category leadership as an environmentally responsible choice. More than 34 percent of readers who voted selected Trex decking – made from 95 percent recycled material - as the “greenest” in the industry. This latest recognition speaks to the heart of Trex – our commitment to leveraging recycled materials.
The retailers and distributors who sell Trex also recognize our brand leadership, honoring us with the Golden Hammer Award last month. Presented by Hardware + Building Supply magazine, Trex earned top honors for providing the most outstanding benefits to these supplier professionals.
So when you start planning that new outdoor living space, take a look at what the experts recommend. And then choose Trex.
