What is the difference between Trex Select and Trex Transcend?

When it comes to decking options, Trex Select and Trex Transcend are two popular choices. Trex Select boasts an astriated pattern that replicates the look of natural wood, while Trex Transcend goes a step further, enhancing the natural grain with a pattern that mimics the real thing. If you’re after a wide range of colors, Trex Transcend is the undisputed champion, with a whopping 11 shades to choose from. Both options are designed to stand up to the elements, and they’re easy to maintain with soap and water. However, if you’re worried about scratches, you might prefer Trex Transcend’s 4 out of 5 star rating over Trex Select’s. Last but not least, Trex Transcend comes with a 50-year warranty, compared to Trex Select’s 30-year guarantee. Learn more about the differences in this blog post.

What type of decking material do you use?

Blackrock Decks builds exclusively with Trex Select, Trex Transcend, and Trex Lineage building materials. Because we are Trex Pro Certified, homeowners can take advantage of up to a 10-year Trex labor warranty.

What kinds of projects does Blackrock Decks Specialize in?

Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to designing and building custom pergolas, patios, and decks. We also install custom deck railing for clients throughout the Wasatch Front.

What is the average lifespan of Trex Composite Decking?

Wooden decks, while beautiful, typically only last 10-15 years with regular maintenance. That’s why Trex Composite Decking is becoming increasingly popular. With proper installation by a professional team like Blackrock Decks, Trex Composite Decking can last 25-50 years. That’s double the lifespan of a traditional wooden deck!

How long does the average build process take with Blackrock Decks?

At Blackrock, we know that time is of the essence. That’s why we make it a priority to complete each deck build within a reasonable amount of time. We strive to finish the project from start to finish in approximately five days so that our clients can start enjoying their new outdoor space as soon as possible. However, we understand that some decks can be larger and more complex than others, which is why larger decks may take up to 3-4 weeks to complete, depending on size.

Does Blackrock have any deck size limitations?

No matter the size or complexity, our experts have the skills and expertise to remodel any deck to meet your exact specifications. You can trust our team of Trex deck builders to tackle any challenge, from intricate designs to unique shapes, and provide creative solutions that exceed your expectations.
