Believe it or not, this deck in Brentwood was mostly made of recycled plastic grocery bags. It’s one of our most green-friendly projects to date. Also? One of our most beautiful.
One of the few contractors in the Nashville area to have completed installation and product training on Trex products, Stratton Exteriors was happy to take on the building of this deck, and we’re thrilled with the result. So is the homeowner.
According to the Trex Company, which turns millions of pounds of recycled and reclaimed plastic and waste wood each year into Trex products, the homeowner should remain thrilled for years to come. Trex promises that its products offer the best in longevity and will never rot, crack, or splinter. Trex products are also designed to be extremely weather-resistant and should never need to be painted or stained.
What We Did
-Removed existing decking, rails, lattice, and stair treads.
-Installed new Trex Escapes decking in Pewter with hidden fasteners, Artisan Trex railing system in Classic White, Trex Accents vertical skirting in Winchester Gray, and Trex fascia trim in Winchester Gray.
-Our work came with a lifetime workmanship warranty through Stratton Exteriors and a Trex warranty of materials.
