The popularity of composite decking is on the rise, according to the CEO of Trex, the leading composite decking brand in the country. That’s because many homeowners are realizing that traditional wood decks require too much maintenance and cannot withstand the elements as well as a composite decking material can.
If you’re considering a Trex deck for your own home, you need to carefully consider who you hire to do the job. Keep reading this brief guide to learn more about what it means to be a TrexPro Platinum Dealer and why you should choose one for your project.
What It Means to Be a TrexPro Platinum Dealer
Trex has specific requirements in place for contractors that wish to sell and install their products. In order to be certified as a TrexPro Platinum Dealer, a contractor must do all of the following:
- Show a commitment to building high-quality Trex decks.
- Go through extensive training to learn about the different Trex products on the market.
- Go through extensive training to learn how to install and assemble Trex products. This includes learning how to design and install custom inlays, curved railings, benches, and privacy walls.
- Learn how to properly mix decking colors.
Trex also requires all of their TrexPro Platinum Dealers to have a valid contractor’s license and state-specific general liability insurance to help verify that they are legitimate, trustworthy businesses.
After going through all the appropriate training to become Master Builders, Trex then inspects and approves the work to ensure that it meets their rigorous standards. If it does, then Trex will officially certify the contractor as a TrexPro Platinum Dealer.
Here at Sunburst Construction, our team is proud to have met all of these requirements.
What Are the Benefits of Choosing a TrexPro Platinum Dealer for Your Decking Project?
Now you know what it means when a contractor says they’re a TrexPro Platinum Dealer, but what does that actually mean for you, the homeowner? Simply put, it means you’ll get benefits that you wouldn’t get if you chose another contractor.
Superior Knowledge About Trex Products
As a TrexPro Platinum Dealer, the Sunburst Construction team has gone through plenty of training before becoming certified. As a result, we know much more about Trex products than other contractors. This gives you access to a wealth of knowledge, so we can answer your questions and help you make the best decisions for your outdoor living space.
Expert Installation Tactics
Again, because our team has gone through rigorous training, we know exactly how to design and properly install Trex products and railings, so you won’t have to worry about mistakes being made during the installation process. This kind of peace of mind is priceless.
The Best Trex Warranty Possible
Trex offers warranty options for their products, but their very best warranty is only available to TrexPro Platinum Dealers. When you choose our team for your decking project, you’ll get an extended labor warranty for 5 years if you have either Trex decking or railing installed. If you have both installed, that becomes a 10-year labor warranty instead, only available to homeowners who hire a TrexPro Platinum Dealer.
