Makeover Monday: Trex Deck in West River, Maryland

When most customers reach out to us with plans to remodel their back deck, they hope to expand the space to cover a larger area. Our customers in West River, however, wanted to downsize their original wooden decking space. By keeping the original deck off of the back doors and removing the two lower decks, it would allow more room for a natural grassy walkway.

Joel Lewis, one of our friendly Project Consultants, helped bring their vision to life, designing a smaller Trex composite deck that allows plenty of room for relaxing and entertaining, while freeing up yard space on the side of the house.


We removed and hauled away 634 sq. ft. of the existing wood decking, and replaced it with 338 sq. ft. of Trex Basic Enhanced decking and framing in the modern Clam Shell hue. Clam Shell is an easy-to-match shade of medium grey, featuring a low-maintenance, wood-like grain pattern. White vinyl fascia wraps the space for a clean, finished look, and white vinyl Washington-style railings with black aluminum balusters enclose the raised deck for safety.
