Trex Enhance deck boards provide an authentic wood grain look with the durability of a composite and the affordability of wood: the trifecta of decking! This makes Trex Enhance a favorite of homeowners, and if you’re a professional deck builder, you may have installed more than a few yourself.

Professionals and deck owners alike want the best finish possible for their Trex Enhance decking surface and fascia boards. That means hiding the fasteners to preserve the beauty of these composite boards and the overall visual flow of the deck. No one wants to spot fasteners or colored plugs that are close— but not close enough—when they’re surveying their finished deck.

Whichever Trex Enhance color you’re installing—Beach Dune, Clam Shell, Coastal Bluff, Foggy Wharf, Rocky Harbor, Saddle, or Toasted Sand—you know your deck finish is going to be clean and consistent… across the board(s)!
