Hello Everyone!
We are looking at composite decking - Trex, ChoiceDek and Fiberon. Our deck will get a lot of sunlight and heating up is a concern. I've heard Trex gets a little hot to touch or walk on barefoot; however, there is no information on-line or written comparing composite decking on heat, slip resistance, staining, etc. I would appreciate any advice or experience on composite wood products. One redeeming feature of Trex is the color choices- I particularly like the Madiera (reddish brown - however, will this attract the heat even more? Any advice is appreciated since experience is our best advice. Thank you all!

I can only speak for Trex my company has used it for the last 5 years her in No. CA where it gets very very hot and we haven't noticed that it gets any hotter than the redwood. Never had any complaints either as yet, and we've done quite a few.
You can see one of the trex dex projexts (petaluma)on line in our projects section on our site.
