Cedar decking

Well, we moved into a house last year and the decking looks pretty bad.
It's cedar with no gaps in between the boards. The deck looks like it hasn't been taken care of fo a number of years. The bottom of the boards still have stain on the from when it was put down.

What do you guys think of cedar deck over composite? I am pretty rough on my deck dragging chairs across and shoveling it quite often in the winter for the dogs. We entertain quite often with a lot of children coming over.

If I go back with cedar should I seal the bottom of the boards like the previous owner did?

If you go composite, read the instructions as most are 12" on center on the diagonal. Possibly steps, too. Need minimum air space under it, also.

Be safe, GBAR
