Composite decking for a pool
 
I am looking to build a composite deck around a pool. I have done some research and I am considering trex, eon, or timbertech. i am looking for something that is maintenance free and will not grow mold. any suggestions

Correct Deck CX will do all of that for you and is a much better product than the ones you listed. Timbertech would be my second choice though. And trex and eon would be at the very bottom of my list.

Another one to look at would be procell. They have a nice product but limited colors.

Although I have not used it, I seem to hear mostly positive things about the Correct Deck product. Although Trex is the oldest, and you would think the most highly tested and improved product, it is just the opposite; it is almost universally considered the worst of the bunch, avoid it. Do a search on this site, there are quite a few posts on these products, as well as on several other sites. Lots of disappointment with most brands.

Whatever you use for decking do not forget one thing. Pressure treated lumber under the decking. I would use pressure treated beams and joists if you want it to last and last.

I would say rather than a Pressure treated lumber......go for a better company.
