Steel Deck Framing System eliminates the need for pressure treated wood deck frames

Trex Elevations™  will manufacture and market new Trex Elevations Steel Deck Framing – a Steel Deck Framing System that offers   superior longevity performance and aesthetics as Trexdecking and railing products.

Trex Elevations is a dual-coated, galvanized steel, which not only looks great but is stable and lasts along time too.  Because it is steel it  will not warp, twist, split or decay increased homeowner satisfaction and value.

According to Trex the material is easy to cut and work with, it’s also more efficient and cost-effective for professionals to specify than pressure-treated lumber.

The system offers the additional guarantee of a 25-year limited warranty – surpassing pressure-treated lumber, which is chemically treated to resist decay for a maximum of 15 years.  Trex Elevations materials also are composed of 25 percent recycled steel, and any excess materials from a jobsite are 100 percent recyclable.
