DAK Construction builds decks using quality deck products. Trex Materials.
There’s nothing like spending time outdoors. A lazy summer afternoon cookout. A cool night under the stars. A water-balloon fight with the kids. At Trex, they believe that life’s best moments happen right in our backyards. And Trex has invented the idea of high-performance wood alternatives for precisely these moments.
Trex products are a composite product that are made from a combination of recycled wood and plastic, which gives you the best qualities of both materials. The plastic shields the wood from moisture and insect damage, so there is no rotting or splintering. The wood protects the plastic from UV damage and gives your deck a solid, natural feel that looks great year after year. Because there is no need to stain or repair a trex deck, the enjoyment is truly timeless.
As an added benefit Trex decking is friendly to the environment because Trex is made primarily with recycled plastic grocery bags, reclaimed pallet wrap and waste wood. If you want to look at the official Trex Company website and see even more of what Trex offers click on Trex.com.
