Project of the Month: Trex Lineage Deck in Ellicott City

As the largest installer of Trex decking in the country, we are proud to offer our Maryland clients with several of their product lines, as well as a wide array of deck color options. As a newer addition to the Trex family, the Lineage line is designed with advanced technology for superior durability, including enhanced scratch resistance. It’s positioned as a premium product, offering high performance with luxury aesthetics. This line uses heat-mitigating technology that makes it the coolest decking yet, backed by a 50-year warranty.

For April’s Project of the Month, we’re featuring a Trex Lineage deck installed in Ellicott City, Maryland. With the design help of Project Consultant Andre Vidulich, and production led by Ryan Lawrence, our Ellicott City clients transformed their wood deck into a work of art!


Andrew met with our Howard County clients to determine their vision for their deck, color and design options, and provide an overview of the decking materials and build process. Prior to our work, we helped to obtain a permit for the new deck. Generally, upon building a new deck for your home, you will be required to have a county permit. To obtain the permit, you need a copy of your property plat shows the property lines, and an indication of where the new deck will be constructed. You will also need a drawing of the deck to scale that clearly shows the dimensions of the deck, footer size and depth, beam size, joist size and spacing, decking material to be used, railing system and staircase location, if any.

Once the permit was obtained and the CAD drawings were complete and approved, our talented crews were able to get to work. We first removed the exiting wood decking before constructing new long-lasting framework. The new open-under deck frame supports approximately 720 sq. ft. of Trex Lineage decking in the beautiful Biscayne hue. A light coastal brown, Biscayne captures the beauty of mangroves and sandy coasts, with its light honey hues and natural grain pattern. The Trex Lineage line is comprised of lighter, calming tones with subtle streaking, and is specifically engineered to to be cooler under the sun. As with all Trex decking, the Lineage line is from an innovative blend of 95% reclaimed wood and plastic film, and its low-maintenance material cleans easily with just soap and water!

A matching seam board and feature board around the deck’s perimeter was designed also using the Biscayne board. To complement the sandy brown and grey tones, we installed black aluminum Alta-styling railing with standard balusters. If you’re looking for a deck railing option that combines durability, low maintenance, and a minimalist, modern style, aluminum deck railing is an excellent choice. In addition, this type of metal deck railing is easy to install without sacrificing stability or safety.

One set of eight steps provide an entranceway to the backyard, designed with matching Biscayne decking and white vinyl risers. White PVC wraps the deck’s perimeter as well.
