Eco-friendly, Low-maintenance Products Create
Exquisite Outdoor Living Spaces
Va., April 2, 2020 –
From the Steel City to a modern city with green spaces, sustainable buildings
and vibrant innovation, Pittsburgh offers an ideal location for the HGTV® Smart
Home 2020. This year’s home is a natural fit for the city with its industrial aesthetic,
neutral finishes and strategically simplistic styling by HGTV designer Tiffany
Brooks. With smart living in mind, the home features eco-friendly features both
inside and out, including an enviable outdoor living area created with sustainable,
low-maintenance products from Trex Company, the world’s leading brand of
high-performance, wood-alternative decking and railing.
year’s HGTV Smart Home offers an ideal showcase for our extensive portfolio of
high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products,” noted Leslie
Adkins, vice president of marketing for Trex. “From the decking, railing and
lighting to the finishing touches like a pergola, lattice and under-deck
drainage, Trex offers homeowners everything they might need to create outdoor
spaces that are smart, stylish and sustainable.”
HGTVSmart Home 2020 is cleverly constructed with advanced
technology, gadgets and smart solutions to enhance entertaining and everyday
living. The one-of-a-kind home features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two
half baths, a three-car garage and a luxurious yard outfitted with a two-story
Trex deck and other best-in-class products from the company’s industry-leading
portfolio of eco-friendly, low-maintenance outdoor living products.
Decking with Unparalleled
Beauty and Performance
Trex Transcend® decking
in Island Mist
sets the stage for the luxurious outdoor spaces. The top-of-the-line Transcend composite
deck boards pair a natural wood-grain pattern with rich color and realistic streaking
that delivers the look of wood without the hassles of burdensome maintenance. Like
all Trex decking, Transcend brings style that can withstand any weather Mother
Nature sends its way and is designed to resist fading, staining, scratching and
mold. Unlike wood, it won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter, and it requires no
sanding, staining or painting. Food and drink spills can be easily cleaned up
and an occasional soap-and-water cleaning is all that’s needed to retain a
to its appeal, the entire high-performance Trex decking portfolio is
manufactured from 95% recycled material, making Trex a smart choice for
environmentally conscious homeowners. For
more than 25 years, Trex decking has been made from a combination of reclaimed
wood and polyethylene plastic film (recycled from industrial packaging as well
as common household items such as grocery bags, newspaper sleeves and bubble
wrap). In fact, Trex is one of the largest recyclers of plastic film in North
America, repurposing more than 1.5 billion plastic bags each year in the making
of its products.
that Delivers Sophisticated Safety
Trex Transcend® Railing is installed on the second story of the deck,
adding both safety and style. Sleek black balusters contrast with Classic White
posts and rails to create a distinctive design that complements the home’s
modern aesthetic. Boasting unparalleled durability, Transcend Railing won’t rot,
warp, peel or splinter and never needs to be sanded, painted or stained –
meaning minimal maintenance and long-lasting beauty. Furthermore, Transcend
Railing contains a minimum of 40% recycled material and is backed by a 25-year
Limited Residential Warranty.
Bringing another green element to the outdoor space
are recessed deck lights and stair riser lights from the Trex Deck®
collection. Featuring long-life, low-voltage LEDs from CREE®, the worldwide
leader in energy-efficient lighting, the chic, weather resistant deck lights use
75% less energy and are cool to the touch, making them safe for children and
pets. The “plug-and-play” components are easy to install on both existing and
new decks to enhance the safety and style of any outdoor space.
Shade and Style
steps away from the Smart Home deck, a sleek white Trex®
Pergola™ Element provides shade and additional space for
relaxing or entertaining. The sturdy, low-maintenance, all-aluminum
structure features a contemporary design and is accented with column-mounted
LED lights for added ambience.
Trex® LatticeWorks™ is used to conceal a
cleverly disguised storage area under the outdoor staircase. Made from durable,
lightweight PVC, Trex LatticeWorks is weather-resistant, UV-protected and
cleans easily. Nine Trex-exclusive designs ranging from romantic to deco are
offered in white or black.
optimize the space below the two-story deck, a Trex RainEscape® under-deck drainage
system was installed. This above-the-joist system uses a network of troughs and
gutters to divert rain, snow and moisture away from a deck to create useable
dry space underneath. Once protected, the space can be outfitted with
electricity, water and gas lines, as well as furniture, lighting, ceiling fans
and entertainment components. The system also helps to protect wooden
substructures from water damage that can lead to rot and decay.
year’s Smart Home showcases not only the breadth of outdoor living products
available from Trex but also how seamlessly they work together,” noted Adkins.
“Tiffany and the team from HGTV have done an incredible job creating a home
that is not only sustainable and smart but also extremely livable. We are
pleased to be part of this inspirational project again this year and can’t wait
to find out who wins it.”
