WINCHESTER, Va., (September 12, 2023) – Just over a year ago, Alex and Erin Nye of San Diego entered the “Trex® Moments Deck Giveaway” sweepstakes hosted by Trex Company [NYSE:TREX], the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing and leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products. The couple’s witty and heartwarming video entry and creative vision for their outdoor space captivated the team at Trex and earned them the top prize of $10,000 in Trex products. This summer, the lucky winners put the finishing touches on their dramatic Trex transformation.
“We reviewed hundreds of entry videos but the Nye’s definitely stood out,” explained Leslie Adkins, vice president of marketing and ESG development for Trex Company. “It made us laugh, smile and showcased how a Trex deck can transform a simple yard into something truly extraordinary.”
As a competitor on TV’s “American Ninja Warrior,” Alex wanted to create an epic backyard training ground to share with the entire San Diego Ninja community. The couple also wanted a place where they could relax and entertain family and friends. Referred to as “The Jungle,” the renovated outdoor space features a custom-designed 400-square-foot Trex deck that Alex describes as “easily the coolest feature of our home.”
To seamlessly blend the deck with the natural surroundings, the Nye’s chose Trex® Select decking in Woodland Brown, paired it with Trex Transcend® railing in Charcoal Black with crown top rails, round aluminum balusters and post cap lights. The deck was specially designed around a tree that the couple wanted to preserve, which sits at the center of the space and provides both shade and character. Further enhancing “The Jungle” theme, the deck is finished off with distinctive bamboo skirting.
“The creativity that Alex and Erin brought to their vision and the finished outdoor space really captured the spirit of the ‘Trex Moments’ sweepstakes,” noted Adkins. “They created a space where special moments will be made with friends and family for decades to come.”
Engineered with a proprietary formulation and durable integrated shell, Trex composite decking resists stains, scratches and mold. It also won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter like wood – and upkeep is hassle-free. No sanding, staining, painting or sealing is ever needed, and spills wash off easily with just soap and water. Sustainably made from 95% recycled and reclaimed materials, Trex decking also contributes to a greener future.
“I’ve seen firsthand how bad wooden decks can get, including warping, peeling, and disintegrating,” said Alex. “We’re so happy that we won’t have to worry about any of that. This deck is going to last a lifetime and give us countless memories with our friends and family.”
