Extreme Heat and Your Wood Deck

As we swelter in the record-breaking heat indexes in Central Virginia, your wooden deck is affected as well. Extreme heat and humidity can really do damage to your deck by shrinking the wood and making the deck more absorbent to rain and providing places for mold to grow.

Once your deck absorbs all that moisture, the wood can result in buckle and swell. The recurring cycle of shrinking and swelling will warp and buckle the wood and pull nails from joints.

Trex Transcend® decking offers the broadest range of decking colors and finishes (including five Earth Tones and five Tropicals). Transcend is engineered with a proprietary shell technology that protects against fading, staining, scratching, mold and mildew
