I HATE HATE HATE my deck. I was convinced to use the composite because it would not fade or give slivers. I was NEVER told how slippery it would be. It becomes black ice whenever there is a frost. It is even slippery when wet. I just fell for the second time this season. Several other people have fallen. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt. I have placed a rug on the deck, but not sure what to put on the stairs. The stairs are the area of all of the falls!!!!
My advice is to NEVER EVER use this material. I am seriously thinking of tearing up the double digit thousand dollar job and having the decking replaced. I fear one of us will break a back or hip.
