What is Trex?
Trex is a decking material produced from recycled:
- Plastic bags
- Pallet Wrapping
- Waste Wood
Designed to look like solid wood, Trex’s ingenious manufacture with recycled plastics has a built-in protection system. The plastic in Trex acts as a barrier that prevents rotting and splintering. A perfect marriage, the wood materials used in Trex protect the plastics from sunlight and UV rays. Becoming more popular in both home construction and commercial applications, Trex will not trap moisture while providing a solid decking material. For Seattle Trex Decking, contact State Roofing.

Ideal times to clean are just after installation and then on a semi-annual basis (typically spring or fall is most conducive with the weather). This will help to maintain the beauty of your Trex outdoor living space.
