The system offers the additional guarantee of a 25-year limited warranty – surpassing pressure-treated lumber, which is chemically treated to resist decay for a maximum of 15 years. Trex Elevations materials also are composed of 25 percent recycled steel, and any excess materials from a jobsite are 100 percent recyclable.
“The Trex name is already synonymous with high-performance outdoor living products, and this product line extension will allow us to continue gaining market share in the rapidly growing ultra low-maintenance category, while positioning our brand for strategic expansion into the $1.9 billion deck substructure market,” said Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “Composite materials are increasingly taking share from wood decking and railing, and we see the same opportunity for significant market penetration against wooden deck substructures with the introduction of Trex Elevations.”
Trex Company is the world’s largest manufacturer of high performance wood-alternative decking and railing, with more than 20 years of product experience. Stocked in more than 6,700 retail locations worldwide, Trex outdoor living products offer a wide range of style options with fewer ongoing maintenance requirements than wood, as well as a truly environmentally responsible choice.
