Ecological Friendly Trex Decks for Homeowners in Dumfries, VA
HAL CO Fence sources the best possible materials for our fences and decks. In addition to red cedar and pressure-treated pine for our Dumfries, VA customers, we now offer Trex Decks’ new eco-friendly composite wood product as an attractive, weather-resistant alternative.
The new Trex composite has a 95% content of recycled plastic film and wood. The company also uses modern, ecological friendly manufacturing procedures. These new methods eliminate the use of harmful chemicals and instead use factory waste that previously and needlessly went into landfills.
The plastic film comes from a wide number of sources. Trex purchases and gathers dry cleaning bags, grocery and other shopping bags, newspaper sleeves, sandwich bags, and even the overwrap used on items like multipacks of tissues and toilet paper.
The wood content comes from reclaimed sources such as lumber yard scrap ground to sawdust. Trex proudly makes the claim no tree was cut down to make a single one of their planks or other products.
The Trex manufacturing process itself is simple. After purchasing the plastic film, the company cleans it and then grinds it into granules. Next, the plastic is mixed with the sawdust and heated. Trex’s manufacturing team works the mixture until it is smooth, soft, and pliable; adding color dyes as needed for filling orders.
Next, technicians pour the plastic mix into forms to create the deck boards and rails. They then cool the boards and cut them to length and shape. Inspectors examine the final product for a fully blended color throughout each piece, overall strength, and any visible defects. Once cleared, they wrap and ship the pieces to us for installation.
Trex works closely with the U.S. Green Building Council to show companies and communities how they can design around these new materials and ideas. HAL CO Fence supports this idea with every Trex deck we install in Dumfries, VA.
To ensure we meet every customer requirement and wish possible, HAL CO Fence maintains an in-house design team. With over 35 years in the deck and fence business, our team can help every customer design a deck which is not only meets its functional requirement but also adds to the beauty and value of the home.
