As I have no experience with these new composite decking materials, but will have a need this year to demolish 2 decks and build new ones, I'm looking for information...personal knowledge and experience. I can get all the advertising off the web or at the lumberyards. What I'm really looking for is "first-hand, I've worked with the stuff, love-it, hate-it" kind of information.
Anyone out there got it? There's quite a few to choose from...Evergrain, ChoiceDek,Trex, Timbertech, Weatherbest, Elk, etc., etc....
Myself, I'm tempted to stick with the tried and true materials I know...cedar & redwood, but maybe the composites are a better, albeit more expensive (?) route? My understanding is that the framing needs to be 12" centers, not 16" ? Any and all experience appreciated.
