Here's what I just had done and I'm very happy with how it came out.
I had the decking and rail caps done in trex, the rail system and the
skirting is in cedar and the supports are pressure treated.
This gives me the durability and convenience of trex, but I won't have to
worry about splinters or warping of the decking.
From a look standpoint, it pretty much looks like a cedar deck from the
side and I don't personally have a problem with the look of the trex
decking. But, I think it does look a lot better than an all trex deck
It still was a lot of work to stain the cedar parts, but I probably won't
have to do it that often since most of the cedar parts won't have standing
water/snow/etc on them.
Also, from a financial standpoint, it was a bit cheaper to do part cedar
rather than all trex.
I wasn't sure how it all would come together when the builder suggest this
hybrid, but I think it gives me exactly what I was looking for.
I'll be happy to send a couple of pictures via email if anyone is
