Do’s and Don’ts

Follow these brief tips when installing Trex Rainscapes and be sure to have the best deck on the block!

Do’s

  • Make sure your joists are straight and square. Gutters should have outlets every 12’ to 14′.
  • Make sure the trough is wrinkle free and has proper fall to the downspout. Check with local agencies for permits and codes prior to any electrical installation.

Don’ts

  • DO NOT staple Trex RainEscape products anywhere other than over or into floor joists, ledgers, rim joists, headers, etc.
  • DO NOT use spiked hidden fastners. 
  • DO NOT stand anywhere other than directly on top of floor joists, ledgers, rim joists or headers as the Trex RainEscape system will not support you.
