Re: Composite deck anyone?
I have a Trex deck (solid, not hollow), and mold is certainly not an issue in Colorado. We used to have a redwood deck, and the sun just destroyed any finish we ever tied to use. Every year we were sanding and restaining/sealing the deck. With Trex, just rinse it off once or twice a year and that's it. Someone mentiond special framing for Trex, but our's is standard framed 16" o.c. joists. Our decking is screwed down through the boards, and if I had it to do over, I would spend the extra money to use a hidden fastener system like the "Tiger Claw" system.
