WINCHESTER, Va., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trex, the world's largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, has once again captured three first-place rankings in Builder magazine's 2013 Brand Use Study.
Proving its unparalleled brand power among trade professionals, Trex was named number one in "brand familiarity," "brand used the most" and "brand used in the past two years" for the composite/PVC decking category. In addition, Trex earned high marks for "quality" and continued to gain share in this performance area.
