What a beautiful blend of structure into earth. Excellent! The chairs at bottom look like Polywood. Hope that helps.

How did you build the circular stairway. - Clearly you can't provide all the information, but what was the trick to make it circular?

Hi Charlie,

There are a few different methods that can be used, but we recommend consulting a local contractor for more details on what would work best for your outdoor space. You can find a local TrexPro contractor on our website.

What has worked best for me is cutting your stringers using ACQ plywood. Use 3 layers per stringer and stagger the seams. You can screw the plywood stringers together and also use a PL type glue for added strength. The plywood can be curved to the radius your looking for. But just remember it can't be a really tight radius. Also your going to be using a lot of plywood when your creating these steps. All stair stringers need to be 12" on center for stairs when using Trex decking.

Dear Sirs from Trex Co.; so they have to cover everything when it rains? I ask this, because I am very interesting in the design and use of wood. I live in Peru- South America and wnat to do something similar in Cuzco, a city where it rains.
I looked at your web page. Very nice work. Thank you for your help

Lava Rock? - In the description it says it's in "lava rock". Is that referring to the color of the deck or the use of lava rock in the landscaping? I can't tell by the picture if there are lava rocks or wood chips being used next to the deck. http://www.allterrainlandscapingltd.ca/en/

Hi, Linlaw - Have you considered ShadeTree? It's a retractable fabric shade system that installs easily and is low maintenance. Visit http://www.trexpergola.com/trex-pergola-with-shadetree-canopy.html for more information!

These would work well for providing a shade screen for the sides of the pergola.

Curved railing - In this picture, the rails are curved. I was told by a contractor that Reveal rails (or Signature rails) can’t be curved. How was this done?

Our Trex Signature aluminum railing can be curved. It can be curved through special order from The Iron Shop. Here is a link that walks you through the process:

That is our Reveal aluminum railing. The posts are from our Transcend railing line, and the balusters are round, black aluminum. You can use Reveal posts instead of the Transcend posts if you prefer. For more, visit http://www.trex.com/products/railing/

Does Trex sell the stairway as a kit?

No, the top and bottom rails are made from our Reveal aluminum railing line and the composite posts are from our Transcend railing line. In this case, the contractor curved the top and bottom rails. We do not sell them curved.

How is the deck constructed to ensure the lower level doesn't get wet?

Hi, danasaville - This deck was installed with Trex RainEscape, a deck drainage system. A network of troughs and gutters keeps rain, spills and snow melt from dripping through elevated deck boards, ensuring dry patio area on the ground level below. Find out more about RainEscape here: http://www.trex.com/products/deck-framing-drainage/.
