Are composite decks too hot? Your experience appreciated! (heat ...Many of my neighbors had replaced wood decking with various plastic/composite decking, with varied results. Some of them sun faded (a very common problem partly dependent on what color the "wood" was), some of them got grease spots from the BBQ that could never be cleaned, some of the capped composites had the cap lift or warp (several of these were covered under various warranties and even class action lawsuits). In general, the newer higher end stuff ...

Composite Decking questions - Home Improvement | DSLReports Forums21 Jul 2017 ... And we will be here just long enough that I'd have to re-stain wood a second time before we sell. So I'm very strongly leaning toward one of the more affordable composites for the decking and rails, with metal balusters, and some form of post sleeves. (I found the stone-look sleeves for around $150 per post, including LED lighting, might just use those) I've ruled out the Menards Ultradeck line, based on an abundance of negative reviews online. I like the texture of  ...

Deck pricing and advice (house, buyer, contractors) - New Jersey ...That's a big deck. If it's done right, it can add as much value to your house as a new bathroom or kitchen. You can DIY but, composites are tricky and there are a few things to learn when you work with them. Remember to be careful of the cut edges as they can chip easily, especially when cold. Get the right screws or mounting kits or it can get really ugly. Leave the right amount of space b/w the boards as composite swells and contracts quite a bit with the temperatures.

Replacing a Deck for B/C Class Rental: or Wood? - BiggerPocketsYou don't have to read all below to weigh in as it is kind of a ramble, my core question is: what to use for decks in rentals comparing wood (redwood for example) and or similar plastic decking. is a recycled plastic board that looks like wood. It is nicer looking, but more expensive. Kind of like putting granite countertops in a low end rental, probably not worth it. However, saves cost of having to stain every year, and may last longer? I needed to make this ...

Refinish a Wood Deck or Replace with Composite? - Workshop Addict2 Oct 2015 ... Wood still out sells composite deck boards at this time, but that might be due to the higher costs of composite deck material. I recently moved into a 10 year old home that has three very large decks. Two are wood and one is stone and from my experience, they all need some sort of maintenance. Unfortunately, all of our decks were not maintained and need some serious attention. My wife and I went back and forth on if we should refinish the wood decks or simply ...

Composite decking (railing, installed, cost, square) - House ...We just put in a Transcend deck. Smaller than yours though (ours is around ~450 sf). Total installed price was $12.5k. But this was a replacement and not completely new construction, meaning no footings needed to be set, etc. I believe our materials were roughly $7.5k -- including the boards, the hidden/under mount fasteners, and approximately 24 feet of railing, and x amount of feet (can't remember how many feet) of fascia board for the step risers.

partial composite partial pressure treated - Professional Deck ...Re: partial composite partial pressure treated. I think it comes down to personal preference and experience with certain products. Generally speaking we don't use actual composites (wood flour/plastic mix) but use a lot of cellular pvc. and capstock products. Fiber composites, Azek, Escapes, and Sensibuilt all offer these lines. These products in my opinion out perform all composites in terms of scratch scuff and stain resistance. Atlanta is a huge deck market and ...

Bewaire of Azek decking staining and fading.... - Professional ...Re: Bewaire of Azek decking staining and fading.... I'd like to add that most composite and PVC makers have changed their marketing to reflect low maintenance as opposed to maintenance free. Please also remember not to pressure wash plastic products, especially PE boards with wood fiber because you are removing surface particles and giving mold and stains a deeper place to root. At the end of the day, these products are a terrific alternative to wood fiber ...

Wooden deck vs Plastic Eco Deck! - MyBroadband16 Jan 2015 ... HO want's to have a deck in the garden. She has been looking at the ecowood, plastic deck and fancies it. Without seeing one mind you, only snaps. I feel that if we do a deck, it should be a genuine wood deck, not for more wood for one of my notorious fires, but because it's the real deal! Who has a plastic deck? Why did you go for plastic?
