      It is trek brand I think and it is listed as composite decking. I did not build the deck but was on when I purchased the house. Thanks

    The Trex web site says that you should never have to paint or stain their product. I would think that you could find something that would adhere, like the Rustoleum products we use to restore plastic lawn furniture. However, my first move would be a photo or two showing why it needs to be restored and send them off to Trex. There is a number to call on their web site. Anything you get here is just another homeowner's opinion. Definitive answers can be had from the manufacturer.

    I agree with Ken. There is a warranty on trex decking boards. If you discover that your out of warranty, you could try that product called Restore. Supposedly you just wipe it on and the original luster comes right back. Further, I would call the Restore company or check the label, MSDS for a way to seal the restore for outdoor use.

    Thanks for all the help folks.
  • Have you washed it with a power washer? That might get the dirt out of the pores and restore the color. Did you check with Trek? Might be worth a call to their customer service numeber.
