Wow... looking like I'm no the only one dealing with this. I have 685 ft. of Trex Winchester Grey decking on three decks that were built in 2005. About half of the decking on our back deck and the stairs are flaking so we submitted a claim to Trex which included pictures and original receipts thanks to Milwaukie Lumber for finding and supplying me with receipts . They sent a response in lest then two weeks and I'm no even sure they had someone inspect. The response says they will ship out a full replacement for the entire lot that I purchased and provide m with a check for $254 for labor.
My question is has anyone had any luck getting them to do a refund for the product vs. sending me out more junk? Also, $254 for labor is a joke and I really don't want to spend the money on labor just to have issues again in the near future.
feel free to contact me directly if you have any info that could help. athomeval (at)

Has Trex really corrected thier decking problems?? I'm in the process of building a new deck and after going to a lumber yard; they said, I would be better off buying a 100% PVC product. if I don't go with wood. Thanks Frank

I just received my TREX offer letter in the mail. The offer is to cover the cost of the boards and $13.00 extra.(I presume for labor.) A custom designed and built deck and the labor to replace faulty material is worth $13? TREX and the lawyers are really making out well off the backs of the people. I feel sorry for people in corporations that can live like that.

We had 2 Trex decks (top and bottom decks) installed in 2006. I had no idea so many others were having problems. When I contacted Trex about 3 years ago, I just got the runaround. They said it was not installed according to the directions, so it is deteriorating. What does installation have to do with deterioration? I guess the 25-year guarentee is just a joke.
Since many of the postings are from dates prior to 2014, is there anyone out there with an update to the claims that have been made recently? Glad to provide my email: [email protected]

We are literally having a contractor come in 2 days to tear out our existing wood deck, and we were going to install Trex. Thanks to all who posted, because we are going to go with a redwood deck instead. Even if Trex has completely fixed their problems with the decking, I will not help their bottom line when Trex treats customers so cavalierly and badly. All other composite decks seem to have some problems also (including Timber Tek, which is a PVC deck). So back to good old redwood. Again, our thanks and best wishes to all in your claims / suits against Trex.

I just bought a house and was not worried about trex because I hav a trex deck at my current house and it is perfect. So that with the 25 yr. warranty, I said great, a trex deck!... then after a while I see the 2x2 vertical boards flaking and as I look closer I see some boards have already been replaced! Non disclosure issue with my realtor! who happens to be the wife of the general contractor who built the house! Issues are piling up here. I bought this house because it was only a couple yrs. old...landscape was zip and little maintenance... This house has an 80 ft. long deck lifted 10 ft. off the ground. Now I worry... .

It was the worse decision I made to use tree decking. It has swelled up and pushed my corner trim board loose from the house and it mildew worse than treated decking boards.I had mine installed in 2007 that I bought from lowes. I complained to them about my problems and was told I would have to live with it. They never informed me about a class action lawsuit. I have my reciepts. Is it to late to get any help?
