FROM THE GROUND UP

Designer Pamela Porter ripped up the worn gray carpet in favor of something more practical: Trex, a durable synthetic decking material designed to weather whatever Mother Nature throws at it. Big plus: Trex looks like hardwood without the constant upkeep and cost. That means no rotting and no deterioration.

More reasons to talk up Trex? It’s splinter-free! Don’t be afraid to go barefoot on warm summer days. Installation is simple, even for beginners. Trex comes in many colors and finishes so you can achieve any look.

INSTALL TREX

IOption 2: An alternative method for joining boards over a single floor joist is to add a 2×4 “nailer” board at the joint. This allows a screw to be installed at a 90-degree angle. Because Trex does not have a linear grain, wood screws placed perpendicular 1 inch from the board edge and side can be installed without the board splitting.
