Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products, today announced that Trex ® Pergola ™ has been named a 2012 “Best New Product” by Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler, two of the industry’s most respected trade journals. Trex Pergola was recognized for its exceptional style, design flexibility and superior durability in the Decking/Outdoor Living category of the magazines’ annual “101 Best New Products” report. “Being consistently acknowledged as an industry leader – year after year – by Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler is not only an honor, but underscores our commitment to delivering the highest quality outdoor living products to both consumers and trade partners,” said Ronald W. Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “It’s always rewarding when top influencers and experts recognize the outstanding performance of our products, as we strive to elevate the entire outdoor living category with our design and manufacturing innovations.” Trex Pergola kits are manufactured of durable and low-maintenance cellular PVC TrexTrim ®, and are available in a variety of sizes and designs to complement any residential or commercial outdoor space. Each kit includes all the pre-cut components and necessary hardware for quick, simple installation. Trex Pergolas may be attached to a structure or free-standing, supported with round or square columns and may be protected with an optional shade system. In addition, all pergolas are offered in a standard white finish and may be painted to complement the exterior of a home or commercial building. “Since its introduction last October, Trex Pergola has consistently received high praise from consumers and contractors alike, and this acknowledgment from two esteemed industry publications reinforces all the positive feedback,” said Ernie Sears, president and CEO of Backyard America, which manufactures Trex Pergola under a license agreement with Trex. “Through our relationship with Trex, we’re able to produce outdoor structures that are not only beautiful, but offer the durability and high-performance qualities that are synonymous with the Trex brand.”
