Trex Deck Ques

Hello to all,

Installed an 8' x 22' trex deck. that also has an arbor over it. Well, both a large level and drill were dropped while working on arbor. The level of course, had to hit w the end that now left an indentation. The indentation then pushed up the material next to it. The drill, of course, hit w the bit side too, so I have 1-2 pitted areas.

I trimmed out the deck side that butts up to some stucco I made from 2"x 3/4" (H x W). I took a piece to the trex deck and from the computer picture, made the paint. I painted the trim w 3 coats, then installed it and filled install holes and painted. It matches perfectly.

Was wondering if anyone else has installed a composite deck and scarred it, then found a suitable way to fix it? Since I have a paint that matches perfectly, this could cover any work. Trex does not warrant any repairs, they are into replacement only. Since I am not pulling 20 board to get to the ones I need, I was wondering if anyone has any solutions. It is the Trex Transcend type and is $46/16Ft. so I was looking for a fix rather than replace. If you do not know it's there. it's hard to see it, but it's the "first thing that comes to mind thing" since I was the installer.

Thank you very much,

Put a piece of furniture, flower pot, or something over the mark then FUGETABOUTIT.


P.S. Most of us are critical of our flawed work, but everyone else does not even see the "sore spot" that we see.
Had to look that up.

Seems to be several references to it. AMUSING.

Try to use a heat gun/ hair dryer to soften the area a little bit, then use a gloved finger to smooth it out a bit.

Might work !
