Trex Company recently announced the release of their Deck Color Visualizer App for the iPad. The App let’s users explore all the deck color options available from the wood-alternative decking and railing company. It also makes it easier to share ideas with others and get feedback.

The App uses “photo-realistic representations” of three Trex outdoor living spaces. App users can swap colors in and out of the various deck elements illustrated in the photo to get an idea of how color combinations would work in an outdoor deck setting. The different deck components that can be fiddled with include top and bottom rails, balusters, posts, post caps and post skirts. Additionally, the deck itself can be altered for color.

It’s a nifty little way to explore the offerings of one of the leaders in decking materials. Buying/building a deck is a big commitment. It’s not a project a homeowner wants to take on once every few years, so getting it right the first time is crucial.

Would you use the Deck Color Visualizer to pick your deck colors?
