Our house is in Maine, less than 2 hours from the HQ of Correctdeck. In August of 2006 my carpenter husband installed a huge,multi-layer deck with Correctdeck, railings, stairs, decking, the works. We ended up with the last of the unimproved material on the market. As we were finishing, we found out that the "improved" version had come out with mold resistance. I didn't miss the RED FLAG!
We kept the snow shoveled off it during the winter of 2006 and it was still lovely in March 2007. Then the first mold showed up in May 2007, less than 9 months after installation. Mold/mildew spots were visible by May. They increased in June and July. In the past 10 days between July 17 and 27, the spots have begun to increase exponentially.
The deck is on the west side, so 85% of it gets full sun after 11:00 AM. How could a product manufactured in Maine, sold in Maine, not last even a year under typical Maine conditions? Did the manufacturer bother to test it before selling it? Obviously they knew by 2004 that it had serious problems. They were negligent in continuing to market this material as long-lasting, low-maintenance.
I came to the internet to see what Correctdeck recommended to correct the problem. Surely, they have had time to work on a real solution. I can see from the inter-net chatter that you've all been down that road.
I feel your pain, and I'm ready to participate in a class action suit. I you need someone from the state where these bozos operate, let me know.
