When outdoor living is a lifestyle priority—like it is here in Hawaii—as a builder, you know that a sun deck, porch, veranda, lanai, balcony or other outdoor structures need to be a priority for every home or residential unit you build. As a homeowner, the ability to step outside and enjoy your own private slice of paradise is one of the most valued and in-demand features of a home. At Honsador Lumber, we have the decking & fencing and other outdoor building materials you’ll need to create that perfect outdoor living space.


Today, decks and other outdoor living spaces come in all shapes and sizes. There’s no magic number for square footage, placement or even number of decks because you build whatever complements a home’s layout, seasonal climate and view.

Decking manufacturers like Trex make it all easy with a complete system that takes you from framing to railings and a product that’s incredibly tough and durable yet offers equally incredible versatility, selection, function and style perfect for the challenges of our tropical island climate.

  • Start with the Trex Elevations underdeck framing system. Dimensionally stable triple-coated steel offers unparalleled strength for longer spans with fewer posts, allowing the dramatic features that make a deck more than just a viewing platform. Opt for a curved deck design, or incorporate cantilever construction to build the support for a deck that will rival the view. Rot- and termite-proof, Elevations steel framing has a Class 1A fire rating.
  • As a solution for wood framing systems, Trex Protect self-adhesive nonskid flashing tape caps surfaces—horizontal and vertical—to protect against moisture yet still allows wood to breathe. Shield the tops of joists, rim joists, beams and ledger boards with a butyl-based tape that won’t bleed and that will outlast asphalt-based tapes that often curl and hold water.
  • To make every square inch count, use the Trex RainEscape underdeck drainage system of gutters and drains to turn what was once wasted space into a dry, shaded, functional outdoor room ready for whatever you enjoy doing—entertaining, living, relaxing—or for secure, dry storage.
  • For wood decking that looks like wood but performs better than wood without all the maintenance of wood, Trex composite decking is a 95-percent-recycled green product made of reclaimed wood and recycled plastic. Trex boards are resistant to rot, decay, warping, twisting, staining and fading as well as pests like termites. They’re always splinter-free, and maintenance is just a simple wash—no sanding, staining or sealing. Decking boards come in four different performance lines in nearly two dozen natural, earthy shades of reds, grays and browns, square-edged or tongue-and-groove. Trex has everything covered—from fascia and deck fastening systems to spiral stair treads and railings—and comes with a 25-year warranty.
  • Providing security and a finished look, Trex railings offer a full range of customizable looks in aluminum and composite. Choose from a wide selection of railing infills, gates, ADA-compliant handrail options and railing post components to get exactly the look you need.
  • With Trex deck lighting, custom lighting choices extend outdoor living, transforming daytime style into nighttime atmosphere. Options include post cap lights, rail lights, recessed deck lights and stair riser lights.


Privacy is just as important as the expansive freedom of an outdoor view, so at Honsador Lumber, we stock fence posts, boards and panels that can maintain or even enhance an outdoor landscape while defining your personal space. In addition to traditional wood fencing options, we also stock Trex Seclusions composite fence and Trex LatticeWorks PVC products–fencing components designed to withstand the test of the elements and pests without warping, cracking, decaying or fading.

Trex fencing and lattice panels are low-maintenance yet durable, offering privacy and a beautiful way of defining and enhancing outdoor spaces. There’s no sanding, staining or sealing—just an occasional wash.

  • Trex Seclusions solid pickets and panels are made of the Trex proprietary engineered composite and offer wind ratings up to 100 mph in steady wind and 130 mph in gusts. Posts come in lengths up to 12 feet. Pickets come in 67-inch and 91-inch lengths while rails are 91 inches long.
  • Trex LatticeWorks decorative lattice is made of PVC, so it’s light, cleans easily, and is UV-stabilized and weather-resistant. It comes in black or white and is also paintable. Lattice patterns range from classic and privacy diamond patterns to more ornate imperial and turtle dove patterns. LatticeWorks offers attractive yet durable solutions for deck and porch skirting or panels for outdoor features like pavilions, lanais and gazebos.

Options for outdoor living are more versatile and beautiful than ever before. Manufacturers like Trex have used their creativity and expertise to branch out into additional products like exterior cladding, fire pits and water features, deck furniture, outdoor kitchens and pergolas. And, innovative brands like Tru-Pine are expanding limits even further with engineered structural composite wood with a smooth, paint-ready surface perfect for building outside or in.
