Hello! I'd be grateful if someone will answer ASAP, as we are thinking of re-doing the floor of our deck next week. Rather than re-staining it again (it is currently treated wood), we've looked at Fiberon and Veranda composite decking at Home Depot. Our deck is about 12' x 12', and is mostly in the sun. It is not covered, though, so it gets wet when it rains. I've read the horror-stories about TimberTech, but have not heard anything at all about Veranda and Fiberon (Veranda & Fiberon may be the same thing). Are they good products? Please let us know, again, ASAP. Oh ... I will also mention that we live in New England and varied weather.

Thank you! Betty & John

I luckily switched to Fiberon with our decking business just before the Trex problems arose because I liked the density of the product.

Since over the years I haven't had one peep of complaint from my customers.

I do design our decks for location & exposure though and we are located in N. California.

The new Fiberon line has a coating that is similar to a golf ball, so do a little research I think you may like it.

We prefer to use the "hidden fastener" system. So no screws show in the field.
