Better go with the wood. Trex has always had to much of a sag factor for me even when used at manufactures recommended spacing specifications. I built myself an overhead lumber storage rack from some 12’ post oak pallet material I came across, it worked fine. After finishing the rack take some measurements from floor to shelving and periodically check them to be sure that everything is staying were you put it. Due to space limitations I had to make mine a cantilever design. Some Simpson connectors can also be used the beef up some of critical joints.
