Trex vs Wood

Trex Fencing vs Wood Fencing

Why Wood You?

Everyone loves the natural look of wood but hates all the painting, staining, and sealing. Wood fencing of all types, including pressure-treated wood, cedar or redwood, requires extensive upkeep. The quality and longevity of wood has also dropped significantly over the years as lumber is no longer coming from old growth forests. Trex Fencing was designed to emulate the beauty and strength of a wood fence, only without all of the upkeep. Our high-performance, eco-friendly composite boards withstand years of sun, sleet, and snow. Through it all, we have never felled a single tree. So when comparing composite fencing vs. wood, there’s no competition.

How does Trex Fencing compare with wood fencing?

TREX WON'T BECOME FOOD FOR TERMITES

Unlike wooden fences, Trex composite fences are impervious to insect damage, such as ants or termites. The proprietary composite materials used in Trex Fencing are the perfect solution where insects are a concern. Why WOOD you install a fence that might be eaten up in time?

TREX WON'T ROT, WARP OR TWIST

 Unlike a wood fence that may begin rotting and decaying after 5 to 10 years, Trex composites are made of a proprietary blend of wood and plastic that is not susceptible to rot or decay. The unique design of the Trex interlocking pickets also eliminates warping and twisting that is common with a wood fence. These interlocking pickets also eliminate unsightly gaps, which are typical in a wood fence. Why WOOD you install a fence that begins deteriorating the day you put it in?

TREX DOES NOT NEED STAINING OR PAINTING

Wood fences require staining or painting in order to achieve and maintain a desired look, as well as to preserve it from rot.  Trex Fencing is available in 3 natural colors and never requires staining or painting. Trex composite fences are designed to have the appearance of wood without the extra workload associated with a wood fence. Why WOOD you install a fence that is going to cost thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours over its lifetime to maintain?

TREX IS ECO-FRIENDLY

Trex Composite Fences are made of 95% recycled a product, which means we are doing our part to leave a smaller carbon footprint. Trees can take years to grow while Trex composites are a much more efficient alternative.
