National Lumber Now Offers Trex Enhance Decking

Are you ready to enjoy the warmth and sunshine that the spring has to offer but don’t have the deck to do so? Well, look no further! We now carry Trex Enhance Decking and are ready to help with your outdoor living needs.

Trex Enhance decking comes in two unique collections: basics and naturals. If you are looking for a deck that requires minimal upkeep, is as durable as composite, and as affordable as wood, the Basics collection may be the best fit for you! The Trex Enhance® Naturals collection, on the other hand, has more of an authentic wood-grain appearance and its tones are naturally inspired. Further, all of the Trex Decking options are comprised of 95% recycled materials, such as reclaimed wood, sawdust, and plastic packaging.

Worried about the maintenance for these decking options? No need to worry! Both collections are equipped with 25-year fade and stain protection as well as mold and mildew resistance. In addition, the decking is easily cleanable with just soap or water or a pressure washer. Both of the Basics and Naturals collections provide a soft, splinter-free finish that is comfortable underfoot, so you can fully enjoy all the fun that the Spring has to offer.

Want to start planning your dream deck? Whether you have a rooftop deck in your city home or are ready to build on your home in the county, we are ready to start turning your dream into a reality. We have a team of experts to aid in your decking selection and design process and will instill the deck ourselves. Why wait?

100 Years of Serving Baltimore

The National Lumber story began in 1919 when Alexander Fruman, a carpenter by trade, sensed a growing need for custom-made window and door sashes. This hastened the birth of National Lumber Company and set the stage for the customer-centered business we run today. The first three employees were Alexander and his sons Isadore and Phillip Fruman and they set up shop in the ‘Little Italy’ section of East Baltimore. National Lumber is currently run and operated by a similar team—Arnold (4th generation) and his sons Neal and Kevin.

What else was happening in 1919?

  • President Woodrow Wilson held office.
  • The dial telephone was introduced to the public by the American Telephone and Telegraph Company.
  • The 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution, authorizing Prohibition, went into effect in the United States.
  • An act of the United States Congress establishes most of the Grand Canyon as a United States National Park.
  • The United States Congress approved the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which would guarantee suffrage to women, and sends it to the U.S. states for ratification.
  • Treaty of Versailles was signed and ended World War I.
  • In the first major scandal in Major League Baseball, and to this day, the worst, nine players from the Chicago White Sox throw the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. It is forever known as the Black Sox Scandal with players, such as immortal Shoeless Joe Jackson, banned from the game and Hall of Fame forever.
  • Charlie Chaplin began work on The Kid, his first feature film. His co-star would be four-year-old Jackie Coogan.

Since our opening 100 years ago, Baltimore and the surrounding areas have seen a lot of change and development, but one thing that hasn’t changed throughout the years is National Lumber’s dedication to our customers and community.
