A Florida Dream Home With Decked-Out Dock


Trex Compositae Decking Completes the HGTV Dream Home 2016

WINCHESTER, Va., December 28, 2015 – When HGTV planned the HGTV® Dream Home 2016, it considered every detail an opportunity to wow. So, it’s no surprise that Trex, the world’s number one decking and railing brand, and leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products, made the coveted list of premium brands to be featured in the home. The stunning finishes and eco-friendly benefits of Trex’s wood-alternative decking made it a perfect fit for the first ever HGTV Dream Home remodel.

The incredible transformation of the Merritt Island, Florida home features Trex Transcend® decking in vibrant Spiced Rum on two second-floor balconies, as well as the home’s private boat dock. Trex decking also provided an excellent, scratch-resistant floor for the whimsical “doggy dream house.” Trex® Outdoor Lighting™ enhances the home’s dock area as well.

“Trex Transcend decking features an authentic wood look with natural shade variations and distinctive streaking,” said Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex Company. “The rich colour and aesthetic of Spiced Rum proved an ideal complement to the tropical setting of the HGTV Dream Home 2016.”

High-performance, Low Maintenance, Eco-friendly
In addition to its beauty, Trex decking was selected for its superior durability, low-maintenance and eco-friendly qualities. Unlike wood, the ultra-durable composite material won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter. It resists fading, staining, scratching and mould and eliminates time-consuming maintenance like sanding, staining or painting.

And, Trex Transcend decking features the realistic look of a tropical hardwood, without the environmental stresses and maintenance issues associated with exotic hardwoods. In fact, all Trex decking is made of 95 percent recycled content – and not a single tree has ever been felled in the making of Trex products.

Luxurious LED Lighting
Lighting the way, Trex also provided Trex Outdoor Lighting fixtures for the home’s renovated dock. Dimmable, recessed deck lights illuminate the dock at night allowing residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoor space long after the sun goes down. Trex Outdoor Lighting uses energy-efficient LEDs for long-lasting illumination and weather-proof casting to withstand the unpredictable seaside conditions.
