Trex Fencing Colors
NO MORE PAINTING OR STAINING NEEDED - WHAT A GREAT IDEA
Personalize the details of your project with a color that will showcase your own sense of style. Trex carefully selected three versatile colors that can pair with any architectural color palette. Mix and match colors to create your own unique design. Whatever your choice, Trex Fencing is sure to enhance your landscape and provide a beautiful backdrop.
The rich colors of Trex fencing complement virtually any color scheme. And, the fact that you’ll never need to paint or stain means you get to enjoy the beauty of your Trex fence for years without having to fuss around with schedules, buying and applying materials yourself or contracting for a service, and making sure you protect your yard, vehicles, and features. It gets even better! Unlike wood fencing which begins to look poorly after just a few months of being painted and will continue to go through a cycle of looking good for a only short time between maintenance periods, Trex weathers gracefully, transitioning quickly from its factory color to the natural weathered look demonstrated below.
Saddle fencing starts out dark tan and fades to a lighter tan, mimicking the color and tone of natural stained wood. When paired with vibrant colors, Saddle provides a natural added warmth commonly seen on craftsman homes.
Winchester Grey fencing will be a noticeably different color when new (typically a brownish/green color) and will weather to its intended color of light grey. Since it has a brownish color when new, it can be mistaken as Woodland Brown at first glance. Winchester Grey compliments the natural colors in brick or masonry, and can be attractive when used in modern urban design. It is especially popular with Trex w/Horizons.
Woodland Brown looks like darkly stained wood and fades the least from its original color. It provides high contrast against lighter colors creating a defined border. The deep rich color of Woodland Brown is an elegant addition to your castle and is hands down our most popular color.
Color Weathering and Variation. The colorizing process during manufacturing is performed in a manner to deliberately over-pigment the product. This ensure that a weathered color is achieved when it has seasoned. All three Trex Fencing color options will lighten over time but will never lose their color. The time and degree of the weathering process depends on exposure to UV light. Fencing that has less exposure to sunlight may take longer to transform. Due to the nature and process of producing composite materials, it should be expected that color variation between Trex composite fencing components may occur and in some cases may be significant, although Trex quality control does require all manufactured lots to fall within a tolerance band.
Trex Fencing is produced from a variety of recycled plastic and wood fibers that may absorb pigments differently – similar to what you would find in natural wood. You may also find that color variation in posts, rails, and pickets may be more pronounced due to the thickness of the materials and different lot codes. Variation may be more pronounced with Saddle and Winchester Grey. After the weathering process, this variation typically becomes less noticeable. Color variation does not affect the integrity of the product. To minimize the effect, if preferred, we recommend that when pickets with color variation exist, install them so that similar hues are grouped together within the same section of fence.
