Correspondingly, can you change the color of composite decking?
Although manufacturers demand that the color of trex or composite decking is permanent, they will surely fade in time. Therefore, you can surely paint your composite decking when you want to change the color completely or simply like to freshen the look of the deck.
Secondly, how do you paint old Trex decking? How to Paint Composite Decking
- Step 1: Remove or cover plants. If you've got a jungle on your deck, you'll need to cover any and all foliage with canvas or plastic drop cloths or remove them from the deck altogether.
- Step 2: Clean your deck.
- Step 3: Sand your deck.
- Step 4: Prime it.
- Step 5: Paint it.
Keeping this in consideration, what kind of paint do you use on Trex decking?
Complete the job by applying a top quality latex floor and deck paint in a satin or semi-gloss finish (higher gloss levels have better mildew resistance and are easier to clean). If you didn't prime the surfaces, you can apply a quality acrylic latex solid color deck stain recommended for use on composite decking.
Does paint stick to composite decking?
Composites aren't designed to be as paintable as natural wood planks, but they can accept paint if the deck is properly cleaned, prepped and primed. A topcoat of porch paint can then restore beauty to your deck and extend its life for several additional years.
