Trex Honored By Industry Leaders

It’s nice to be recognized for the work you do and even more significant when the recognition reflects a commitment to innovation and improvement. Trex took top honors recently from two prestigious building industry publications, demonstrating why we’re the leader in outdoor living.

Trex outdoor living collection includes decking, railing, lighting, furniture and more

Trex swept Builder magazine’s 2015 Brand Use Study with first place in all four performance areas measured for the composite/PVC decking industry, the first time in recent history that a single manufacturer earned top honors in every subcategory.

Trex was first in:
  • Brand Familiarity
  • Brand Used Most
  • Brand Used in the Past Two Years
  • Quality
It’s also the eighth consecutive year that Trex has earned No. 1 rankings in the first three categories.

“Building materials and techniques are ever-changing and the more we can learn about the brands builders prefer, the better we can understand what materials and techniques are important to them,” said Paul Tourbaf, group president, residential construction, for Hanley Wood, sponsors of the study which has been conducted annually for more than 20 years.

Trex also was honored last week with six Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) from the Design Journal, an international resource for interior designers, architects and facility managers. ADEX is one of the largest and most prestigious awards programs that recognizes product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.

Trex Outdoor Lighting collection features deck and landscape lighting products

Trex captured three ADEX Platinum Awards for our new Trex Outdoor Lighting™ collection, Trex Aluminum Gates and tropically inspired “Island Mist” shade of Trex Transcend® decking. In addition, Trex Spiral Stairs™, Trex ADA-Compliant handrails, and the new “Havana Gold” shade of Trex Transcend decking were honored with ADEX Gold Awards.

What does this mean for you?

It means that Trex’s commitment to improving the quality and performance of our wood-composite decking boards since our founding in 1992, and the premium products that round out our outdoor living collection, ensures consumers a smart investment. People who choose Trex can be certain that the outdoor space they build will not only be beautiful, but long-lasting and easy to care for.
