    Is Trex taking a play out of Tesla's playbook?
    DailyFinance
    Tesla Motors and Trex have almost nothing in common.

The other is, well, Tesla. Both Tesla and Trex are innovative leaders in products that largely claim to be better for the environment than their competitors — Tesla through its EVs, and Trex through its alternative wood decking, which is made of a combination of recycled wood and plastic waste.

No matter the decision, the property, new or old, is likely in for a makeover aimed at making routine upkeep more manageable.
