My wife asked me to contact you for your assistance and I would greatly appreciate any assistance you can offer. I am building a 500 sq foot deck and plan to apply 5/8 to 3/4" plywood along with an acrylic surface. I have two major firms in mind. www.metacrylics.com and www.gacodeck.com I was hoping you could provide additional alternatives for building a solid deck where the area underneath remains dry. I was unimpressed with tongue and groove type cedar porch decking that would not last for a decent period of time. Also, any comments from former customers regarding the above firms would be appreciated. Thank you.

This has been on my small 2nd floor deck for 10 years, no problem. http://www.generalpaint.com/spantex.html

The firm you spoke of is out of Canada. Do you know of a firm in the U.S. so I can save on shipping? Additionally, there is no pricing on their web site. Do you know what the cost is per square or square foot?

With a quick search this was all I could find, the company was out of Auburn, Wa. but could have been sold? This was available at builder supply outlets. Sorry don't have a cost per square foot.

I am very disappointed in this bulletin board and it just goes to show you, the internet is just like a talk show...so many opinions, so little credibility or experts. I would not recommend using this as a source of any project that exceeds $5.

P.S. I eventually used the product from metacrylics which had superior strength and properties. I am amazed of how long it took to sift through the misinformation on the net.

Information on the net is free and you get what you pay for. Anybody who doesn't realize what they're asking for and paying for is only fooling himself.
(Sorry you were fooled.)
