New deck?


That's true, but cedar does eventually weather to a gray, which I why I prefer composite decking.

Correct deck CX takes care of your mold issue. As far as why I think its better in the long run is it does not fade much at all. It is very resistant to scratches and does not stain.

btw I have seen trex turn from brown to concrete grey in less than 1 year.

Of the composites, I like Correct Deck the best myself. That being said, I still dont see the value of composite.

Depends upon the enviroment. Where I am at NO WOOD lasts past a few years if you dont stain it YEARLY no matter what the can says. It cannot hold up to the harsh UV rays we have here. (unless the deck is shaded then MAYBE you can get away with 2 years) So a composite product that can hold up to this enviroment is really the only solution and Correct Deck CX is the only one I have seen hold up in this enviroment.
