Seclusions Trex fencing costs around $31.00 per linear foot, whereas the Horizons Trex fencing costs around $40.00 per linear foot.

At the low end, Trex Seclusions costs $17.00 per linear foot for a 3 ft. fence, and around $33.00 per linear foot for a 12 ft. fence. Trex Horizons fencing costs $24.00 per linear foot for a 3 ft. fence and $45.00 per linear foot for a 12 ft. fence. However, note that these prices are low-end and can go up significantly more

Design, Styles & Usage
The Seclusions and Horizons lines come in three colors, Saddle, Woodland Brown, and Winchester Grey, sure to complement any outdoor décor. All fencing components feature pigments throughout the products to reduce fading and eliminate the need for painting. Plus, if the surface is scratched, the underlying composite is the same color, so scratches are far less visible.
Trex fencing is designed with interlocking pickets, which eliminate warping and offer full privacy and security. They also have the same beautiful appearance from either side of the fence. In other words, your neighbors will love your new fence!
Each collection also includes coordinating fence posts, post caps, top and bottom rails, and gate options. All Trex fencing is made from a proprietary blend of 95% recycled wood fiber and recycled plastic. This gives composite fencing the beauty of real wood and the durability of PVC. The fencing won’t rot, splinter, or warp and never needs to be painted or stained. It also resists insect damage, including termites.
Overall, composite fencing has a higher upfront cost than tradition chain link, wood, or vinyl fences. However, after a few years with no maintenance or picket replacement costs, composite fencing can be a more cost-effective investment.
The most convenient way to purchase Trex fencing is with their fence panel kits. Each kit includes pickets, top and bottom rails, brackets, and screws for a 91” (approximately 7.5) section of fencing in the desired height. Both Seclusions and Horizons products are available in heights from 2’ up to 12’. Fence posts and caps are sold separately. Gate panel kits and individual gate components are also available.
For more custom applications, all fencing components can be purchased separately. Trex also offers post adapters so that fencing can be installed on concrete.
Trex fencing is available at select authorized distributors nationwide. You’ll find a selection at chain home improvement stores like The Home Depot and Lowe’s stores, though the selection of options, sizes and accessories might be limited. Most retailers can order anything you want too.
