TREX DECKING
AND RAILING
Welcome to your OUTDOOR HOME
SHOES optional
What you’re about to enjoy on a day-to-glorious-day basis is exactly the thing people
book exotic vacations to experience: a private oasis, mere feet from the fridge. No
reservations required. Nobody else hogging the lounge chairs. Just you, your family and
crazy amounts of outdoor fun.
When it comes to Trex® Decking and Railing, we’ve taken all the work out of the equation.
No turning down picnic invitations to re-stain the railings. Never will you miss a beach
weekend so you can sand down the splinters. Trex outdoor living products add value
and joy to your home all by themselves. In fact, the dramatic beauty and carefree
comfort of Trex outdoor living–not to mention our green heritage–is something that’s
most attractive to potential home buyers…that is, if you can ever dream of moving.
So fire up the blender and load up the sunscreen. Because you and your Trex deck are
about to holiday happily ever after.

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS IS ALWAYS A GOOD INVESTMENT
While Trex® may be a larger investment upfront, down the line it saves more green than wood.
In fact, after just five years, the total cost of owning a wood deck already equals the cost of a
Trex deck, when you consider what you’ll spend in cleaning supplies, stain and your precious
time. On average, you can recoup more than 70% of the cost of adding a deck*, making it one of
the best investments for your home.
*According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2009-2010 “Cost vs. Value” report.
Trex works for your wallet because it:
» doesn’t weaken, split, rot or splinter over time the way wood does
» maintains its high quality and value for years to come
» immediately boosts your home’s value while enhancing its beauty
» has proven to be a key selling point for potential homebuyers
» offers a 25-year limited residential warranty on all of its products
LOOKING OUT AT THE WORLD
And knowing you’ve done your part to protect it.
Spending time outdoors feels a lot better when you’re helping to preserve the outdoors. Our
company was built upon green principles and values, from our innovative materials to our
sustainable processes. In fact, use of Trex Decking and Railing systems contributes to a building’s
enviable LEED points. (The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating
System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of
high-performance green buildings.)
RECYCLED MATERIALS
At Trex, we reuse as smartly as possible, creating innovative new products from not-so-new
beginnings. Our resources are closely screened for high-quality standards before they go near
a Trex plant.
» Trex saves around 600 million pounds of plastic and wood scrap from landfills every year.
» Trex is made of 95% recycled materials, including plastic shopping bags, reclaimed
wood and sawdust.
» Trex hasn’t felled one tree in all our years in the decking and railing business.
Instead, we use:
»
reclaimed wood from woodworking operations
»
used pallets
»
sawdust (upwards of 300 million pounds a year)
Trex® products have created
great outdoor spaces for such
national environmental
projects as:
» The BASF Near Zero Energy
Home in Paterson, NJ
» The Solar Decathlon,
a collegiate green building
competition
» The National Building
Museum’s “The Green
House” exhibit in
Washington, D.C.
» Trex is the largest plastic bag recycler in the United States, with 7 out of every 10
recycled grocery bags ending up at Trex (about 1.5 billion bags per year).
SUSTAINABLE PROCESSES
We regularly seek out third-party audits to make sure we’re continuously improving our green
practices while meeting all environmental, health and safety guidelines and regulations.
» Trex trailers used to transport wood dust utilize vegetable-based oil hydraulics.
» Our proprietary processing method eliminates smokestacks.
» Factory runoff/refuse is recycled back into the manufacturing line.

» As much as possible, Trex packaging is made from recycled paper and plastic.

TREX TRANSCEND™ LIMITED COMMERCIAL WARRANTY
For a period of ten (10) years from the date of original
purchase, Trex Company, Inc. (hereinafter “Trex”)
warrants to the original end-user commercial purchaser
(the “Purchaser”) that Trex Transcend™ decking (the
“Product”) will perform, under normal commercial use
and service conditions, as follows:
the Product. If the surface of the Product is damaged or
punctured, this warranty will be voided.
Fade Resistance: The Product shall not fade in color
from light and weathering exposure as measured by
color change of more than 5 Delta E (CIE) units.
Railing: This warranty does not cover Trex Transcend
railing components.
The Product is designed to resist fading. No material is
fade proof when exposed to years of UV exposure and
the elements. The Product is designed to resist fading,
and will not in any event fade by more than 5 Delta E
(CIE) units.
Stain Resistance: The Product shall be resistant to
permanent staining resulting from spills of food and
beverage items including ketchup, mustard, salad oils,
tea, wine, coffee, fruit punch, barbeque sauce, grease,
sodas and other food and beverage related items
that would typically be present on a deck, or mold and
mildew naturally occurring in the environment, provided
that such substances are removed from the Product
with soap and water or mild household cleaners after
no more than one (1) week of exposure of the food or
beverage to the surface or first appearance of the mold
and mildew.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Trex does not warrant
that the Product is stain-proof, and does not warrant
stain resistance resulting from spilled or otherwise
applied food and beverage substances which are not
properly cleaned as provided above within one (1) week
of exposure. In addition, materials not covered in the
stain resistant warranty include abrasive compounds
of acidic or basic pH, paints or stains, strong solvents,
metallic rust or other abnormal commercial deck use
items, and non-food and non-beverage substances,
including but not limited to, biocides, fungicides, plant
food, or bactericides. Mold and mildew can settle and
grow on any outdoor surface, including this Product. You
should periodically clean your deck to remove dirt and
pollen that can feed mold and mildew. This warranty
does not cover mold and mildew which is not properly
cleaned as provided above within one (1) week of first
appearance.
Commercial Purchaser: For purposes of this warranty,
a “commercial purchaser” shall refer to any purchaser
other than an individual residential homeowner.
Standard Trex Company Limited Commercial
Warranty: This warranty is in addition to the standard
Trex Company Limited Commercial Warranty that
applies to all Trex products.
Transferability: This warranty may be transferred to
subsequent buyers of the property upon which the
Product was originally installed.
Exclusions from Warranty Coverage:
Exposure to Heat: Direct or indirect contact with
extreme heat sources (over 250 degrees) may cause
fading and may damage the surface of the Product, and
any effects of such exposure are expressly excluded
from coverage under this warranty.
Surface Damage: Never use metal shovels or sharpedged tools to remove snow and ice on the surface of
Paint Or Other Materials Applied to Trex Transcend
Decking: If paint or other coating materials are applied
to the Product, this warranty will be voided.
Other Exclusions: This warranty shall not cover any
condition attributable to: (1) improper installation of
the Product and/or failure to abide by Trex’s installation
guidelines, including but not limited to improper gapping;
(2) use of the Product beyond normal commercial use, or
in an application not recommended by Trex’s guidelines
and local building codes; (3) movement, distortion,
collapse or settling of the ground or the supporting
structure on which the Product is installed; (4) any act of
God (such as flooding, hurricane, earthquake, lightning,
etc.), (5) improper handling, storage, abuse or neglect of
the Product by Purchaser, any transferee or third parties,
(6) any fading or staining not on the walking surface
of the Product (i.e., the underside or the ends of the
Product); or (7) ordinary wear and tear.
Procedure for Making a Claim under this Warranty
In order to make a claim under this warranty, Purchaser
must do the following:
1. If the Purchaser is making a claim relating to the
warranty on stain resistance, Purchaser must do as
follows:
(a) Purchaser must try to clean the affected area of the
deck by using the cleaning procedures described above
within one (1) week of exposure of the food or beverage
to the Product or first appearance of the mold and
mildew.
(b) If the affected area remains reasonably unsatisfactory
after Purchaser has tried these cleaning procedures,
then Purchaser must have the affected area of the deck
professionally cleaned at Purchaser’s expense.
(c) If the affected area remains reasonably unsatisfactory
after the professional cleaning, Purchaser may make
a claim under this warranty, provided that such claim
is made within thirty (30) days after the professional
cleaning.
2. To make a claim under this limited warranty, Purchaser,
or the transferee, shall send to Trex, within the warranty
period referred to above (10 years after date of original
purchase), a description and photographs of the
affected area of the Product, proof of purchase, and if the
claim relates to the warranty on stain resistance, proof
of compliance with paragraph 1. above, to the following
address:
Trex Company, Inc.
Customer Relations
160 Exeter Drive
Winchester, VA 22603-8605
3. Upon confirmation by an authorized Trex representative
of a valid claim hereunder, Trex’s sole responsibility
shall be, at its option, to either replace the affected
item or refund the portion of the purchase price paid
by Purchaser for such affected item (not including the
cost of its initial installation). Replacement material will
be provided that is as close as possible in color, design
and quality as the replaced material, but Trex does not
guarantee an exact match as colors and design may
change.
4. THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT COVER AND
TREX SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR COSTS
AND EXPENSES INCURRED WITH RESPECT TO
THE REMOVAL OF AFFECTED PRODUCT OR THE
INSTALLATION OF REPLACEMENT MATERIALS,
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LABOR AND
FREIGHT.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL TREX BE LIABLE
FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE
SOUGHT IN CONTRACT, IN TORT (INCLUDING
BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT
LIABILITY) OR OTHERWISE, AND TREX’S LIABILITY
WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS SHALL IN NO EVENT
EXCEED THE REPLACEMENT OF SUCH PRODUCTS
OR REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE, AS
DESCRIBED ABOVE.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This
warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also
have other rights that vary from state to state.
This warranty shall only be applicable and enforceable in
the United States of America and Canada.
TREX TRANSCEND™ LIMITED RESIDENTIAL WARRANTY
For a period of twenty-five (25) years from the date of
original purchase, Trex Company, Inc. (hereinafter “Trex”)
warrants to the original end-user residential purchaser

permanent staining resulting from spills of food and
beverage items including ketchup, mustard, salad oils,
tea, wine, coffee, fruit punch, barbeque sauce, grease,
sodas and other food and beverage related items that
would typically be present on a residential deck, or mold
and mildew naturally occurring in the environment,
provided that such substances are removed from the
Product with soap and water or mild household cleaners
after no more than one (1) week of exposure of the food
or beverage to the surface or first appearance of the
mold and mildew.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Trex does not warrant

should periodically clean your deck to remove dirt and
pollen that can feed mold and mildew. This warranty
does not cover mold and mildew which is not properly
cleaned as provided above within one (1) week of first
appearance.
Residential Purchaser: For purposes of this warranty,
a “residential purchaser” shall refer to an individual

in an application not recommended by Trex’s guidelines
and local building codes; (3) movement, distortion,
