What is Trex Fencing &
Who Manufactures it?
Trex is a very well-known and popular manufacturer that works with suppliers and wholesalers across the country. They specialize in composite materials, specifically decking and fencing. Their fencing, which is a rather new product, has allowed clients to still reap the benefits of privacy fencing such as security and privacy, but without the natural wood hassle. Natural wood is a great option for fencing, however, if you are a homeowner looking for an easier to maintain option, composite fencing is the way to go.
Trex offers a few different colors that are easy to customize and pair with existing materials and décor to achieve a specific look. Whether you are repairing, renovating or installing a brand-new fence, you can easily customize your look to your specific needs while staying within a budget. By combining the services and the resources of both Trex and us here at Cedar Fence Direct, we can help build the ideal fence for you and your family.

What Color of Trex Fencing is Right for My Project?
Above are the color choices that Trex offers in their Seclusions fencing line. Their color choices are neutral, but one of a kind, so your design is specific to what you want.

Planning for A New Trex Fence or a Renovation:
When it comes to planning for a fence install or renovation, there are steps you want to take that will make the whole process go smoothly. The first thing you want to do before you take any steps is to make a list of all needs. This is important because you can give this to your supplier or contractor so they can find you the right style.
Some things in your life might be:
- A certain color
- An accent design like post caps or lighting
Take your needs and must-haves into consideration and put those on a list. This is your home and your fence should be exactly what you want.
Budgeting for a Trex Fence Install or Renovation:
Once you have your wants and needs lined out, you can go ahead with setting a budget for your project. Your budget should include the following:
- After Care
- Additional Labor
Something to remember when you are making a budget is to always plan to spend more than you originally intend to. This way you tend to stay within budget and end up with extra money left over in case there are any mistakes or mishaps that happen.
What Materials Do You Need?
When you are installing a Trex fence, there are very few materials that you need which is one reason it’s so popular among homeowners. You will need the fencing itself, your fastener system, and the material you need to secure the post in the ground. Beyond this, your Trex fencing requires no other materials and is super easy to install.
Installation and Things to Remember:
Before you install your Trex fence, you want to make sure you remember a couple of things. You want to double check that you have all the materials before you start so the process will go smoothly. We also recommend that you check your measurements before you install a product. By double-checking certain things before installation, you can avoid any issues or mistakes which can save you money.

Should I Add Lattice to My Trex Fencing?

You can install lattice at the top 1’ of your fence to give the design a unique look. Some homeowners also choose to use lattice as an alternative to their fencing pickets and boards.
