Good quality!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a sample of Transcend Island Mist Square edged board. It is a good weight, a great medium gray color, random grooves and would look awesome as a faux wood decor. I love it and would highly recommend to others!

    Versatile composite
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The transcend line seems to be one of the better composites offered. The multi-colored tones and wood grain texture better mimic natural wood but it is more durable and has a much lower maintenance cost. You should pick this product if you plan on staying in the location you are installing it. The value of this product continues to grow the longer you are able to use it. You are more likely to get tired of the style before this decking needs to be replaced. I did a few tests with my sample and have included pictures with this review. The board was about 12” and approximately 2 lb 8oz. I took a picture of the top texture, and the bottom. I also included a photo showing the texture of the deck after taking 80 grit sandpaper and performing 30 swipes under moderate pressure, as well as slicing the surface with a razorblade. I used a deck screw through the surface to observe the puckering at the fastening point. Overall I’m impressed with this board. I would recommend getting the hidden fasteners because they don’t damage the surface and look very clean. As an added bonus, if you have the money for a curved deck, this board can do that. You can use this board for most applications/ creative applications.

      I used the Trex as a base for a gazebo installed on my patio. I counterbored the anchor bolts from below using 1.5" Forstner bit, I also routed some corners to ease the sharpness after the cuts ( I mitered the corners for the base). The Trex allowed me to screw the screen channel down without having to drill and anchor in my brand new concrete. I like that Trex is water proof and will not rot. It cut and drilled nicely. I easily routed channels to allow water to pass under the material when it gets inside. The color & woodgrain texture looks fantastic and worth the extra for the higher spec Trancend ( as is having the full 1" of thickness to work with for my use. My wife and I like it so much we are planning to "deck" the inside of the gazebo with Transcend to make the space an even nicer outdoor living room - we are in Houston. I was able to buy the boards in 16' lengths which was also a big plus as there are no seams.

      Trex decking
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So I've been looking for decking material and this transcend island mist deck material look. It seemed very easy to clean after I put juice and pop on.it. I tried stabbing it with a knife and dropping a brick on it. No damage. I'm definitely going to use this material for my deck this summer.

        Heavy Duty
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a sample of the Mist deck board. I have to say before I could even open the box it was soaked by rain and snow, which was awesome b/c it showed me it could weather the elements! The color is amazing and how sturdy it is also is great. It has a 25 year limited warranty on fading and staining and I love the fact its 95% recycled material.

          Nice looking
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got a sample of this to see if it's something we may consider. I like the color but would choose something more in a brown. We live in the North and get alot of snow, not sure how this would be to walk on with the ice and slippery conditions we get. It's very thick not a flimsy piece of decking.

            High quality deckboard
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recieved this deck board to sample and was very impressed with the quality of it. The weight of the trex board was heavy and I feel like it would maintain its integrity for a very long time period. The color was beautiful and the grain in the Trex looks like real wood and is very comfortable to step on.

              High Performance Shell
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this board free in exchange for an honest review. I need to redo my 3 decks soon and have been comparing boards and finishes. This board from Trex Trancend protects against rot, warp, splinters and termites. Plus, Trex composite decking is backed by a 25-year limited residential fade & stain warranty, so the color you see today is the same you’ll enjoy for decades. These boards are made with 95% recycled materials which makes them eco friendly and a fact that I love! I also love the look of woodgrain and the durabilty of this product. I do believe I have made my choice and can not wait to see this on my decks!

                Sturdy, well made, attractive.
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great sample of decking that I would purchase in the future. The board is heavy, seems quite sturdy, and looks well made. The inside looks like composite, and the coating is what I believe is the wood look material. I walked over this with bare feet as well, and it didn't provide the feeling of splintering that sometimes happens with real wood. I love that the color was permeated throughout the whole sample piece. My only concern would be that the decking has exposed composite, if it were to be cut, would this composite rot or become stained? The color was also very nice. It was chosen as a compliment to my home's exterior. It matches quite well.

                  Beautiful deck!! We used the Tiki Torch color for the main part of the deck and pictured framed the outside of the deck with Spiced Rum. Looks so amazing! Stunning!

                  We got the Trex Transcend to replace pressure treated decking treads on our front steps and needed 10 9ft wide planks for 5 stairs. Ordered 5 20ft pieces and brought a circular saw to the store. I was able to quickly slice them into 10ft pieces and get them into the pickup truck. The HomeDepot employee in the yard provided a red flag to tie around what was sticking out. All done in 15 minutes and now that it's installed, the Lava Rock looks fabulous!

                    The sample is a reasonable size to judge texture and color. This line is clearly very strong and easy to machine. There was adequate labeling for identification. The colors on line and in catalogs are deceiving as lighting plays a huge roll in the appearance. When planning to invest a lot of money in an upgrade, I highly recommend ordering additional samples to include the nearest colors that might be acceptable.

                      Advice to others is try to make sure you have enough if ordering in bulk. I was one board short and the additional board was slightly darker than the others. Otherwise great!

                              When I ordered the Trex board, I had asked 2 stores if they could cut the 20' lenghts to 10' for easier transport. They bothe said yes. When I went to pick up my Trex board they refused to cut the board and I had to go through some loops to transport the board home.

                              Got the top of the line Transcend. Not happy.
                              At 11:00 AM, 66* out it's already too hot to walk on. It's been installed for 1 day and already has stains on it. Wish I had done redwood. I have one of the lighter colors Island mist.
