The problem with Composite decking is that it is still a relatively 'newer' product and has yet to stand the real test (the test of time).... There are many happy customers now and many customers that love the composite decks that we have installed. The question is if they will still be happy with the composite product next year? in 5 years? in 10 + years?

There are many opinions out there, as there are also many manufactures, and many 'guaranteed' claims by manufacturers.

Here is an interesting article:

FWIW: This is a product that the home owner wanted us to use on the last deck we squeezed in right before this winter:

Nice product. Looks great, cuts great, installed great and cleaned up great. Used color-matched trim head stainless screws.

The entire deck's exterior components are painted aluminum columns, vinyls, and composites:
