Trex© is Beautiful Not! It Gets Ugly & Spotty!
Trex© Porch - House 1
Looks like a Trex© advertisement! But this is how it looked soon after installation!

We shopped for material to replace our old deck. The Trex© product seemed like just what we wanted. The company advertising conveyed the clear message of a beautiful product with low maintenance. We had seen the actual product in a building supply store and saw a sample that was new and a matching sample that was aged. We could not see any difference between the two so we thought this would be a good match for our project.

Once the deck was constructed it looked fantastic but that lasted a very short time. Spots began to appear quickly and did not resolve with soap and water as advertised on the Trex© website. We asked for a representative to stop by to discuss the problem but no one ever came. We filed a warranty complaint with attached photos and we were told that the pictures showed mold growing. Please read the letter Trex© sent rejecting our claim.

Get that, mold growning in the direct sunlight at 98 degrees this summer. We had a mold consultant come to our house and were we told it was definitely not mold. The consultant thought the spots represented some type of oily element coming out of the decking.

Our next door neighbor has an identical issue through a different builder and a different building supply source. He got a very interesting run around. Please read their story here!
