An HGTV Dream Home With a Decked-Out Trex Dock

Architects, contractors and designers were busy last year with an awe-inspiring home transformation on the sunny coast of Florida. When HGTV planned the Merritt Island, Florida home for its Dream Home 2016 sweepstakes, it considered every detail an opportunity to wow. So, it’s no surprise that Trex made the coveted list of premium brands featured in the home – which one lucky entrant will get to call their own.

Trex Transcend decking is featured on the HGTV Dream Home 2016 balconies and dock.

The renovated home features Trex Transcend® decking in rich Spiced Rum on the two second-floor balconies, as well as the private boat dock. Trex decking also provided a high-performing, scratch-resistant floor for the whimsical “doggy dream house.” Trex® Outdoor Lighting™ enhances the home’s dock area as well.

Trex decking was used to create this whimsical doghouse at the HGTV Dream Home 2016.

In addition to its beauty, Trex decking adds superior durability, low-maintenance and eco-friendly qualities to the Merritt Island home. The lucky winner of this home won’t have to worry about maintaining the dock or balconies – and, instead, will be able to spend more time enjoying their new outdoor space.


The official entry period for the HGTV Dream Home 2016 sweepstakes runs through Thursday, February 18, so there’s still time to make this dream your reality. To enter and view more images of this one-of-a kind home makeover, visit
