Dan & Ellen,
After hurricane Sandy I need some broken parts to be replaced and could not find them. I figured out that the company Correctbuilding products filed for bankruptcy in the State of Maine Buncruptsy Court and no longer exist.
I may have found the solution to the black spots. After years of trying various remedies, a product called Wet and Forget may be the answer. Over the years I've used a bleach solution, various deck cleaners...including those formulated for composites, and mildew and stain removers / inhibitors. Within several weeks the black spots began to reappear. This time, I used a light bleach solution to clean and remove the existing black spots. As before, I scrubbed, let it sit for a few hours (must be a cloudy day) and rinsed thoroughly. I mixed the Wet and Forget according to directions and applied liberally with a 3/8 inch nap paint roller. I left one section untreated with W&F as a control. Not only did the black spots not return...but the deck stay bright and clean. The black spots are returning to the untreated section.
