I own a marina in Warwick, RI and are going to be doing some work next year. TimberTech decking was recommended; however, I am afraid of the mildew problem, along with scratches. Also, how much maintenance must be done each spring before the boating season. Does salt water have an effect on TimberTech?

I have the Floorizon Timbertech in light gray. It becomes ugly within 2 months of cleaning. I've tried Corte Clean. It barely touched the mildew and mold. Power washing was a last resort. It is clean now, but will "ugly" up in a matter of weeks. I want to seal the deck, but the gallon price of composite sealers is outrageous. I'm thinking of covering the deck with outdooor gray carpet to keep water off of it. I really don't like any of the alternatives I've seen and tried. I live in Georgia with high humidity. A real solution would really be appreciated.

My TT deck has been in for 3 years. The very first year the mold appeared. The deck is also 'wavy' after year two. I have just come in from cleaning a 1/3 of my deck and run out of steam. This is an entire weekend job with lots of scrubbing and the power washer. Never mind that we are in drought ridden California and I'm wasting precious water to clean an inferior product.

Simply put: this is a terrible product and the blowback by their claims people is ridiculous given the amount of complaints they have received.

DO NOT BUY TIMBERTECH products. They are the most high maintenance product and you will regret it after one year. If I can keep ONE person from buying the product, the review will be worth it.

Save your money, save your back and save your water!!.
