Jim M. -Highly recommend!  I received a flyer on the patio and contacted the company after seeing positive reviews.  Competitive pricing, good communication, and quick work.  When we hit a couple of snags along the way or my wife changed designs, the guys communicated well and were flexible.  Work looks great and we are a happy customer!

Avoid Deck Staining and Deck Repairs for the next 25 years+ with a Trex Deck!

  • Platinum Deck Builders do not only build new decks – we can also resurface and transform your existing deck into a beautiful new outdoor living area in no time. This transformation will not only make your old deck look new, but it will also reduce your annual maintenance cost in deck staining and deck repairs (saving money over the long run!)
  • Unlike wood decks that require annual or bi-annual deck staining and periodic deck repair, Trex’s low maintenance composite deck needs only a simple power wash/clean to maintain its absolute beauty!

Trex Decking Products

Trex offers three different product lines for decking: Transcend, Select, and Enhance.

Trex Transcend is the top composite decking material offered on the market today. Not only is it the most scratch-resistant, but the deep wood grain and its luxury colors blow every other composite decking out of the water. It will turn your high maintenance wood deck into a low maintenance work of art with lasting beauty. When investing in a 25+ year deck, Transcend is considered the Rolls-Royce. Transcend is offered in 10 different colors and is stain resistant, fade resistant, scratch resistant, and mold resistant. Simply put, it is the best product in the composite decking market.

Trex Enhance has the low maintenance benefits of composite decking at a comparable cost of wood. It comes in 8 different colors, is stain resistant, fades resistant and mold resistant.

Trex Select is also a cost-friendly option offered by Trex. It is stain resistant and comes in 5 different colors. It still has a 25-year warranty like all Trex decking but is the most susceptible to scratching and fading.

Our Trex Deck Building Process

Step #1:  Redefining the customer experience and making the purchase of a Trex composite deck enjoyable!

  • In order to provide our customers with the outside living area of their dreams, we first need to understand your vision, budget, needs, and desired time frame.

  • Completing an in-person design consultation allows us to educate you on the long-term economic value, low maintenance, safety, beauty, and environmental sustainability of a Trex composite deck.

  • We provide samples of different product lines that Trex offers to help you get a clear vision of what they can expect out of your new outdoor living area.

Step #2: The estimating and bidding process for your composite deck 

  • First, we need to decide if we are going to resurface, rebuild, or design a new deck from scratch.
  • Once we decide which direction to go, we will take all the necessary measurements and build a 3-D model of your dream outside the living area.

  • The 3-D model will help give you a visual of your new outdoor living area while enabling us to provide an accurate price for your project.

  • We will provide you with different levels of Trex decking, railings, and other unique additions to help fit within your budget.

Step #3: Design, Select, and Secure Your Composite Deck

  • After we design your project, we will present our proposal and explain all the different options in detail.

  • Once the proposal is selected, we will finalize the scope of the project, detail out what is included, schedule a tentative start date, and discuss payment options.

  • We require a 10% deposit on the total job at booking and a 40% deposit the week demolition has scheduled to begin. The remaining 50% is not paid until your project is completed.

Step #4: Your Outdoor Living Area Begins Construction

  • Platinum Decking has crews made up of 2-3 highly skilled individuals. We are excited for you to meet our foremen and general crew members!

  • A week before your project begins, we will reach out and coordinate any last minute logistics. As you can imagine, the weather sometimes causes minor scheduling challenges.

  • When construction begins, our crew will not start another project until your project is completed. We believe it is extremely important that our customers get 100% of our crew’s focus.

  • The normal building process will be as follows:
    • Demolition
    • Diamond Footing Placement
    • Framing 
    • Decking 
    • Stairs 
    • Railings 
  • After the completion of your project, we will do a final walk around and take the time to explain and register the Trex 25-year warranty.
  • Additionally, we offer a power washing service that can make your low maintenance deck a no maintenance deck. Please ask us about this!
  • Once everything is closed out, we will collect the remaining 50% of the project balance and explain our incredible referral program.
