Why You Need a TrexPRO Deck Builder

Choosing the right materials and installer is important if you dream of a beautiful, long-lasting deck to expand your outdoor living space. While composite decking like Trex offers superior durability and low-maintenance benefits compared to traditional wood, proper installation techniques are essential to ensure your deck looks great and performs well for decades.

That’s where TrexPRO deck builders come in. As certified professionals who have undergone extensive training and vetting by Trex, TrexPROs have the expertise to design and build stunning composite decks that will stand the test of time. From creative design options to precision installation, see why partnering with a TrexPRO is the smart choice for your decking project.

What is a TrexPRO?

A TrexPRO is a deck builder certified by Trex, the leading composite decking manufacturer, as an expert in designing and installing Trex products. To earn this prestigious designation, deck contractors like Mitchell Construction must meet strict requirements demonstrating their commitment to quality craftsmanship and customer service. To become a TrexPRO, a deck builder must:
