Peninsula Publishing distributes a wide variety of business management magazines to professional homebuilders in the Western and Sunbelt regions of the United States – including 50 Plus Builder, American Infrastructure, Builder and Developer, Green Homebuilder Options and Residential Contractor.

The annual Brand Preference Survey highlights the most preferred products of homebuilders, purchasing agents, architects, interior designers and residential contractors with major buying responsibilities. Peninsula Publishing solicited feedback from professionals in a yearlong reader poll conducted through its print titles, websites and LinkedIn and Facebook pages. Manufacturers were ranked in 52 different categories, ranging from appliances and flooring to lighting and paint.

“This recognition further reinforces Trex’s position as the undisputed industry leader, as well as our commitment to elevating the outdoor living category with design and manufacturing innovations,” said Ron Kaplan, chairman, president and CEO of Trex. “We’re especially pleased that the survey reflects the opinions of our valued professional partners throughout the West Coast and Southwest, who acknowledge and appreciate the brand’s high standards for product performance and aesthetics.”

In addition to the Peninsula Publishing honor, Trex recently dominated two 2010 Brand Use Studies conducted by Hanley Wood in conjunction with Builder and Remodeling magazines. In the Builder study, Trex captured the first-place spot in three categories within the Decking: Composite/PVC division – “Brand Familiarity,” “Brand Used in the Past Two Years” and “Brand Used Most” – and swept the Decking: Composite and Vinyl category with top marks for “Brand Familiarity,” “Brand Use” and “Quality” in the Remodeling survey.

Details about Trex’s win in the Peninsula Publishing 2010 Brand Preference Survey will be featured in the January and April issues of Builder and Developer magazine.
