When installing Trex decking, customers should paint the top of the joists black to minimize their appearance and avoid sanding the planks. Trex also recommends that customers avoid routing balusters since that changes the surface of Trex products.
Wear safety glasses, a dust mask, work gloves and a long-sleeved shirt when cutting or installing Trex deckers. For best cutting results, use a high-quality saw and carbide-tipped blades and router bits when cutting Trex decking to the right sizes.
Customers need to choose a variety of Trex decking that meets their visual expectations, since most types of Trex materials cannot be stained or painted.
