I bet! That looks like a lot of work.

When its over you will have a nice, low maintaince deck floor. Some reviews say Trex isn't all its cracked up to be, but in my exp it does pretty good over time. It may fade a little, but it cleans easily, and doesn't tend to crack or warp.

Yeah, the boards are screwed down and have deck restore painted over them. So backing out the screws are not an option

I'm keeping my fingers crossed with the Trex

Do you mean the thick rubbery stuff Like the Rustolem Deck Restore?
I will be using it soon and would be curious how it held up....not very well I assume or you wouldn't be replacing it

That looks really nice! I like the two tone deck boards. And the white is a nice contrast.
