Trex Fencing is a composite style of fence that follows the design of a traditional privacy fence. There are many different benefits when it comes to using composite fencing as opposed to natural wood fencing. Aside from the benefits that composite fencing offers, Trex fencing is available in several different colors and profiles so everyone can find exactly what they are looking for and be able to customize their design.
Traditional Trex Fencing
Trex Fencing first launched their product line with Trex Traditional Fencing. Trex’s Traditional Fencing is a composite privacy fence that still allows you to have the benefits of a privacy fence such as security, privacy, and a secure perimeter, but with the added benefits of composite fencing. Before we get into why composite fencing is a great option, let’s talk about their fencing and the options offered.
All of the fencing colors are neutral and versatile, so customizing is easier for you. Every color also fades to a specific color after weathering so you can be prepared for the color your fence will be once it is exposed to the elements and adjusts as time goes on.
Saddle is a lighter brown, more earth tone color that starts off like a light brown and eventually will fade into a light maple color.
Winchester Grey is a lighter grey that starts off browner, but as time goes on and the material fades the color turns into a light grey. The reason for this is that most people prefer the grey color and don’t want it to fade. So, the color is set to fad in the perfect grey!
Woodland Brown is a chocolate brown color that is very neutral and ideal for anyone looking for a traditional warm color to accent their outdoor space. As this color fades, the brown gets slightly lighter but still stays relatively the same color.
All of the traditional fencing is beautiful no matter what color or profile you chose. Trex’s color choices and fencing options are ideal for customization and creating your own design. Even after years of being installed and being faded completely, the colors are still vibrant and intense!
Trex as a company is an easy company to work with even if you are buying directly from a supplier like RMFP. They offer resources like cost calculators, inspiration galleries, product knowledge and online galleries to help design your own fence.
Trex’s fencing is resistant to rot, warping, and cracking because it is a composite material, but also because it is manufactured to be durable and withstand possible damage.
Why Composite Trex Fencing?
Cost – Composite materials can be very affordable and much cheaper than alternatives. Of course, the price also depends on the location you purchase the material from but in general, you can very easily stay within a budget while shopping for composite fencing.
Durability – Composite is a very durable material because it is manufactured to withstand a lot of possible damage. In Colorado, we have very unpredictable weather and you never know what your materials are getting exposed to. Composite fencing can withstand high winds, temperature changes, rain, hail and snow with little to no damage.
Resistance to Damage – Because composite fencing is a plastic material, it is resistant to things like rotting, warping, mold and all the aspects of damage that can occur with natural wood.
Easy to Take Care Of –Composite fencing is a very low maintenance material to take care of, which is why it’s a number one choice for homeowners looking for a stress-free alternative. To care for composite fencing, all you have to do is simply wash off the surface by hosing it off or wiping down the surface.
Here are various pictures from Trex’s online gallery of past jobs and inspiration to share with their clients. Trex offers multiple different resources that can help you in the process of building and design, which we will get into later. Let’s start with inspiration. Below are some pictures they have posted to give customers some ideas for how you can decorate your Trex Fence and the different options that are available.
This style is their traditional fence style; however, it is paired with a pergola which enhances the design of your outdoor space. It helps you see the whole vision when you are designing a deck space. You can also see how a Trex fence looks when it’s on level ground and is all one height.
This style of Trex Fence is similar to the one above but it’s a darker color, which helps you get an idea for the color you are looking for. It also has different heights to accommodate the ground layout and is paired with landscaping and some planting boxes. You can also see a different style of the post being used to the left side of this picture.
Now this style of fencing is the perfect example of how Trex offers some unique styles that could potentially give you the exact design look you have been searching for. You still get the privacy and security of a privacy fence, but with a little twist on the design aspect.
