We installed our Correct Deck in 2008. We began having problems within a couple of months. We are experiencing black spots (mildew) and fading of the mahogony color into a shade of pink. The deck looks terrible. I have written to the company with no satisfaction. I was told that another company took over when Correct Deck went bankrupt and that the new company wouldn't honor waranty agreements from Correct Deck. We spent a great deal of money on a deck that was sold to us as a low maintenance deck and yet it requires hours of cleaning a few times each year. I have tried the products recommended by the manufacturer, but they are not very effective.
From what I am reading, we are not alone.
Sincerely,
Abe

We live in Indiana on a small lake. In 2008, we built a new home and the builder installed Ccorrect Deck CX on our dock, outdoor deck, grill deck and screen porch. Needless to say, we spent a huge amount of money on this horrible product. Although we have not experienced the mold problem, we hate the decking! After a couple years, it began fading to multiple shades of red. It has cracked, broken, and begun "waving". It is extremely dangerous to walk on - you have to walk carefully to avoid tripping. We are very interested in joining a law suit.

Thank you.

We cleaned the deck and want to stain the surface with Behr stain.
Is the mold going to come back through the stain?
Has anyone tried the approach and did it work? For how long?
Thanks

Dan & Ellen,

After hurricane Sandy I need some broken parts to be replaced and could not find them. I figured out that the company Correctbuilding products filed for bankruptcy in the State of Maine Buncruptsy Court and no longer exist.

I may have found the solution to the black spots. After years of trying various remedies, a product called Wet and Forget may be the answer. Over the years I've used a bleach solution, various deck cleaners...including those formulated for composites, and mildew and stain removers / inhibitors. Within several weeks the black spots began to reappear. This time, I used a light bleach solution to clean and remove the existing black spots. As before, I scrubbed, let it sit for a few hours (must be a cloudy day) and rinsed thoroughly. I mixed the Wet and Forget according to directions and applied liberally with a 3/8 inch nap paint roller. I left one section untreated with W&F as a control. Not only did the black spots not return...but the deck stay bright and clean. The black spots are returning to the untreated section.

The former Chairman of this firm is now a State Representative and is downplaying this all. If you have friends in Maine you may want to let them know.
