I need some advise on Deck Colors

mea5November 4, 2012

Hello, I am looking for some advise on colors for our new deck. We are replacing the current cedar deck with Trex Transcends. My plan is to have:

Floor - rope swing (matches house wood trim and window trim)

Rails - Vintage Lantern, with black contempory baluster

Trim/Posts- here is the big question????

I love the white but we have no white on the outside of the house. I am not opposed to doing something other than Trex for the posts if they are comparable quality/price.

I need to make a decision in the next few days.

And don't pay attentions to those shaggy shrubs:(

Thank you! I also posted on Decks, but not too much action over there.

Here is a link that might be useful: I like this look

If it were me, I'd stay away from Trex - I just like the look of cedar/redwood better. Performance wise, other than getting bent/warped boards, which, could easily be solved by inspecting the materials before purchase, I have never had an issue with wood decks. Trex, on the other hand, I have seen some failures (In Oregon, granted, it's more wet, but, Trex says that shouldn't have been the problem). In that Oregon install, some of the Trex pieces actually rotted, and, after only 2-3 years.
