Trex Pro Labor Warranty

Trex has recently accounted an unprecedented warranty. For their Trex Transcend decking line they are now offering a 2 year warranty on labor only if your Trex Transcend deck is installed by a Trex Pro Gold or Trex Pro Platinum contractor.

CFC is the only Trex Pro Platinum contractor in the state of Utah. We are the only ones that can offer this exclusive warranty.

Trex Pro Labor Warranty

“This exclusive labor warranty protects your customers for 2 years in the event a breach of our standard Transcend decking or porch plank warranties should occur. For those customers who build their decks using Trex Elevations Steel Deck Framing, we’ll up the coverage to 5 years.

This coverage is for residential projects only (docks are included) and it can be transferred once. It covers removal of defective material, disposal and reinstallation of replacement material.

To qualify for this coverage, you must register your projects on www.my.trex.com within 30 days of the project completion date and Trex will include a Certificate of Warranty in your customers’ welcome kits.”

Trex/Diablo Composite Decking Saw

This article was first published as a Trex Company press release on May 24, 2012…

Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products, announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Freud America to introduce the first saw blade specifically designed for cutting composite decking materials. Diablo, Freud’s premier brand of construction tools, will be introducing the new blade series for maximum performance and highest quality of finish when cutting composite decking materials.

“Through our agreement with Freud America/Diablo, we’re addressing the needs of both contractors and do-it-yourselfers, who for 20 years have not had the opportunity to purchase a saw blade designed with the efficiency, longevity and precision to cut composite materials,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “With this blade, we’re not only offering the confidence and security that comes with the industry-leading Trex and Diablo names, but we’re also expanding Trex’s brand presence into the tool departments of retailers across North America.”

Proven Performance at a Competitive Price

The Diablo/Trex co-branded blade will be offered in three sizes – 12″, 10″ and 71/4″ – for use on hand-held, miter and table saws. This new saw blade series has a modified triple chip tooth grind design, Perma-SHIELD(R) non-stick coating, and specific TiCo(TM) Hi-Density carbide to deliver maximum performance. In addition, all Diablo/Trex saw blades have a super thin-kerf design which requires less cutting power, making them ideal for underpowered saws at the jobsite.

In fact, Trex and Diablo have conducted extensive field testing among contractors at composite decking job sites to evaluate the performance of the new blade. The tests consistently showed that the blade offers more efficient and cleaner cuts, less “gumming” of blade teeth and greater longevity when compared to standard saw blades currently in the market.

“Both the Trex and Diablo brands are synonymous with high quality and innovation within their respective industries, and we’re proud to partner on the launch of a blade that will be a true first on the marketplace,” said Russell Kohl, President and CEO of Freud Tools. “These new blades provide cleaner cuts with no swirl marks and longer cutting life; making it a ‘must-have’ tool for both professionals and DIYers planning composite decking projects.”

The Trex/Diablo co-branded blade is expected to be available at retail locations in July 2012. For more information about Trex products, visit trex.com.

If you’ve taken the virtual home tour or the public home tour, you know that HGTV Green Home 2012 is a true stunner. And it was that way even before a single piece of furniture was placed inside. I was taken by interior designer Linda Woodrum’s comment, during our recent interview: “The night before the furniture arrived, I was sad it was coming in,” she said. “I felt structurally it was so beautiful. I wanted to wait. I wanted to just enjoy the space. The unfurnished kitchen-dining-great room was gorgeous — so elegant, in an informal way.”

Favorite Composite Decking Colors 2011

It’s always intersting to get input from people about the products and colors they like best. We asked the attendees at the ASLA meeting to vote on their favorite colors for the new genration decking boards from three major decking manufacturers. Over twenty colors were represented. It was a very informal survey, of course, but here are the results: 1st place: Trex Lava Rock, 2nd place: Fiberon Rosewood, 3rd place: Timbertech Pacific Rosewood. Interestingly, all three vendors were represented in the top three. Close behind were Fiberon Ipe and Trex Spiced Rum. Many of the rest of the boards had at least a couple of votes, but overall the veriagated decking (color streaked) was the most popular.
