SERVICE OVERVIEW

Since Trex came to Canada, Your Deck Company has worked closely with the people at Trex. We have experienced the evolution of Trex over the years and seen the amazing product advancements as well as product additions. Your Deck Company has been trained on and installed every product that Trex has to offer. During the evolution of Trex, products like Trex Elevations steel framing were created. Trex Elevations is a replacement to using traditional Pressure Treated wood as the structure of your deck. Due to the long lasting nature of the Trex Decking and Railing products, it only made sense to have a deck structure that would last equally as long.

POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • Is Trex Elevations more expensive than wood?

    Yes. Trex Elevations steel framing is a more expensive product to use than traditional wood framing. It takes longer to install and the parts are more expensive than traditional Pressure Treated wood framing. With that, consider that a traditional wood deck structure will generally last between 20 and 30 years. Factors such as how close is your deck to the ground, your deck is facing north and gets little sun, damp environments and termites will all affect the expected life span of a traditional Pressure Treated wood deck structure. Whereas Trex Elevations is not affected by those issues and can easily last double or triple the life span of a wood deck structure. Considering that the life span of your deck could be increased by at least 20 years, the additional cost of Trex Elevations steel framing seems negligible.

  • Can I still use Trex Rain Escapes?

    Yes, Trex Elevations is fully compatible with the Trex Rain Escapes system. At Your Deck Company, we have installed countless projects using the two products together.
