Makeover Monday: Trex Deck in Linthicum Heights, Maryland

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to “bandaid” when problems arise with their deck or patio. After all, brand new outdoor investments, such as fences or decks, can become costly depending on your materials and accessories. Homeowners in Linthicum Heights had noticeably replaced sections of their wood deck a few times throughout the years. Despite this, the deck was still splintering and warping, as wood decking does after neglecting proper upkeep. Looking for a more beautiful, maintenance and budget-friendly solution, our clients relied on the expertise of one of Fence & Deck Connection’s knowledgeable Project Consultants, Joel Lewis. Take a look at the transformation below!


We first removed and hauled away the existing decking before building a new free-standing structure to support 340 sq. ft. of Trex Enhance composite decking in Rocky Harbor. A contemporary changing neutral, Rocky Harbor adds sandy undertones to a rustic slate grey, featuring a low-maintenance, wood-like grain pattern.

This hue belongs to Trex’s Enhance collection, which offers an authentic wood-grain appearance with the durability of composite and the affordability of wood. Enhance decking boards are scalloped, making them as lightweight as lumber—without the extra work. This long-lasting decking requires little upkeep and comes in seven colors.

White vinyl Washington-style railing with black round aluminum balusters enclose the new space, and one set of 9 steps with a picture frame finish complete the new project.


If you’re looking to complete your outdoor space with decking that will stand the rest of time, Trex composite decking is the perfect choice! Budget-friendly Trex Enhance decking uses 95% recycled plastic film and reclaimed sawdust, and is backed by their 25-Year Limited Residential Fade & Stain Warranty.
