Getting the Job Done

Part of building your dream deck is the prep work–from scoping your backyard to planning where the furniture goes to gathering the right tools. Luckily, Trex® works as easily as wood, with practically all the same tools you use for wood.

Shopping Preparation

When heading to the store for supplies, it’s best to be prepared with a plan. Have answers prepared for these questions:

What is the square footage of your deck

Do some research to calculate the total number of deck boards you’ll need

Are your items in stock, or will you need to place an order?

Double check any additional tools you’ll need for installation
