Comparing Trex Collections

Trex has become synonymous with composite decking – and with good reason – they produce a quality product and continually innovate. Trex has been supplying decking material for almost three decades and has become the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking products.

3 Trex Collections 

Over the years, Trex has added to their product line and currently offer three distinct collections:

TranscendSelectEnhance
Composition Composite Composite Composite 
Texture and Colour Wood streaks and colour variations Textured wood grain pattern Authentic wood-grain appearance 
Available Colours 
Board Profile Solid Bottom Solid Bottom Scalloped 
Capped 3-sided 3-sided 3-sided

Trex Transcend

Transcend is Trex’s premium collection. These high-quality deck boards are capped on three sides and have a full profile (solid bottom). They’re also backed by a 25-year limited residential, and fade & stain warranties.

Trex Transcend offers two distinct colour palettes:

  • Tropicals: Havana Gold, Island Mist, Lava Rock, Spiced Rum, Tiki Torch
  • Earth Tones: Gravel Path, Rope Swing, Vintage Lantern

The 1” thick boards are tough and durable and provide the best scratch and stain resistance of all three collections.

Trex Select 

Billed as the middle-of-the-road option, Trex Select deck boards are also capped on three sides and have a full profile. They come with the same 25-year warranty and are resistant to water damage, stains, insects and mould. 

The big difference between the Select and the Transcend collection is the deck board thickness. Select boards are slightly smaller,measuring 7/8” thick. This makes the boards a bit lighter and helps keep the cost down. 

If you decide to go with the Select collection, you can choose from one of the five colours: Pebble Grey, Winchester Grey, Saddle, Woodland Brown, or Madeira. 

Trex Enhance 

Trex’s cost-conscious collection is Enhance. Priced to be competitive with pressure treated lumber, Trex keeps the cost low by using a scalloped bottom. Even though the Enhance collection is budget-friendly, it still shares the same 25-year limited warranties as the other collections. 

Like the Transcend collection, Enhance comes in two distinct colour profiles: 

  • Naturals: Foggy Wharf, Rocky Harbor, Toasted Sand, Coastal Bluff 
  • Basics: Clam Shell, Beach Dune, Saddle

All of the Trex collections are built with high-performance technology that can withstand sun, snow and sleet – perfect for our harsh Ottawa winters and hot Ottawa summers. You’ll also enjoy the low-maintenance deck shell that is easily cleaned with only soap and water.
