Trex Transend Island Mist decking installation

About the project

Our clients asked us to replace a softwood timber deck that had recently become worm and looking past its best. They had kept up with the maintenance with regular cleaning and oiling but wanted to upgrade to a premium composite decking that required less maintenance but still continued to look good year after year.

The deck is located to the back of the house, with an extension leading out onto the deck.

We re-built the deck using Trex® composite decking from the Transcend range in ‘Island Mist’ Grey. The deck has a perimeter ‘Picture frame’ where the fixings are hidden under the surface of the board using colour match plugs leaving not visible fixings. Trex® composite decking comes with a 25 year warranty, so where a deck is to be rebuild we also rebuild the frame using the best timber, fixings & methods.

A matching fascia board was also fitted to the framing under the picture frame.

The stainless steel balustrade was re-used. Once the balustrade was re-installed the deck was looking great and ready for the clients to enjoy their outdoor space again.

Transcend decking’s deep timber-grain pattern and luxury colours create a premium, ageless look that leaves other composites in the dust. Rich, fade-resistant colours mimic the look of natural timber while keeping maintenance to a minimum. Trex Transcend decking colours hail from two different colour families: Premium Tropicals offer an exotic look, while Classic Earth Tones lend a cosy touch to any garden landscape.


No sanding. No staining. No painting. No kidding. (Not to mention simple soap-and-water cleaning.) While traditional timber decks require a lot of work, Transcend decking does not require any of the time-consuming prep work before or after installation. Transcend decking is made with minimal upkeep in mind, so it’s easy to keep your deck beautiful for years to come.


Transcend maintains its vibrant colour and luxurious finish–come scorching sun or red-wine spill–thanks to its unyielding, three-side shell protection…and our 50-Year Limited Residential Fade & Stain Warranty. Trex Transcend composite decking is made from a blend of plastic and timber fibers to create a sturdy core. This core is then encased in a synthetic shell on three sides, which protects it from the elements and offers resistance to fading, scratches, or developing mould or mildew.


Made from an innovative blend of reclaimed timber and plastic film, Transcend decking makes use of earth-friendly manufacturing processes, free from the use of harmful chemicals. Wherever possible, we use post-consumer and post-industrial materials. In addition to our drive to create greener materials, we also conduct supply chain assessments to be sure our partners share our approach to ethical and responsible green business practices. See how using a 95% recycled board (that’s almost the whole thing) makes you feel about the great outdoors.

With the decking platform being at least 1m above ground Timber was a great choice for the framing. We source the best quality UC4 Treated C24 timbers which give the decking structure a long lasting and secure base.

Top of the range structural screws were used to construct the frame then once the timber sub frame was complete we covered all of the top surface with a market leading deck protective tape, which seals around the fixing screw to limiting the amount of water ingress into the frame thus expanding the life of the structure.
