Q: Do composite decks, such as trex, stand up better to extreme heat and extreme cold?
Do composite decks handle extreme temperatures (hot and cold) better than wood? If so, is trex the best brand? What other manufacturers should I consider?

Composite decking is a very popular option right now. It requires minimal maintenance, doent need regular sealing and resists cracking and splintering. However, just like wood decking, composite decking with expand and contract depending on the temperatures. Also, composite decking can get hot on the feet when in direct sunlight and all composite decking will fade when exposed to sunlight. There are many manufacturers of composite decking and Trex is one of the more well-known brands. As long as you stick with a well known brand, you should feel comfortable that your product will be supported by a warranty should anything happen with the product.
