The Good

  • Eco-Friendly
  • Easy to Find
  • Unique Fencing Material


Trex composite fencing is made from 96 percent recycled wood and plastic, making it an eco-friendly option. It has been making their products like this for over 20 years, ensuring that the product is quality even though it is also recycled. Trex saves over 400 million pounds of plastic and wood each year. 

Easy to Find

Trex Fencing has a section on there website called “Where to Buy,” where all locations that sell Trex products are displayed. There is an easy-to-understand map that can show you what locations are in each state, and there is also a section with contact information for each store, making it very simple to locate Trex products. Trex can be found in all 50 states. 

Unique Fencing Material

Trex Fencing is known for their Trex material, which is alternative to wood that still looks like wood but without the maintenance. Trex has the strength of wood, but it doesn’t wear down. It is also a much smoother material, so you don’t have to worry about getting splinters. Trex is made for less maintenance, so you don’t have to focus on fixing your fence all the time. 


The Bad

  • Limited Products

Limited Products

Although Trex has a unique type of fencing that is an alternative to wood and is eco-friendly, the company only offers that one type of material. Trex comes in only three different colors, Saddle, Winchester Grey, and Woodland Brown. All three colors do fade, but Trex shows you the new and weathered colors on their site, so you understand what you are getting. 


The Bottom Line

If you are looking for an alternative to wood or vinyl, then Trex is the best way to go for fencing. If you are okay with the Trex material and don’t mind the limited color choices, then Trex is a great product for your fence. Trex also makes your purchase a little easier by ensuring you can find a location near you that has Trex for sale, and it helps that the material is 96 percent recycled. We recommend this company for a good fence that will last a long time.

They make beautiful fence. However, don't include a gate in your plans, because Trex supplies the CRAPPIEST looking hinges they can POSSIBLY FINED. The hinges do not come with any cosmetic covers to hide the ugliness! BUYER BE WARE!!!
