We have spent alot of money on the correct deck product. The mold problem is awful and we aren't getting any help from the company. Does anyone know what to use to remove this mold? WE are so disappointed with this product and are very frustrated. WE would be willing to participate in a class action suit against Correct Deck?

My Husband and I live in MD. We too are having trouble with mold on our correct deck. We would be interested in pursuing this class action suit. Please email us at [email protected]

We just have to do something about a company that pays no attention to it's customers and their complaints. Is someone out there a lawyer or at least know how to start this suit?

Even Correct Deck's web site says this New and improved protective coating will last UP TO A YEAR.

Expect with acid rain, tree sap, and any other environmental condition (like the excessive rain this year) would make it last MUCH LESS THAN A SINGLE YEAR.

The product itself doesn't claim to last beyond a year, in fact not even a year.

You'll need to keep the deck clean and dry, and re-clean with the armor all product and re-apply the deck sealer/protector OFTEN.

This is the problem with ALL manufactured composite decking - they all mold/mildew - often worse than straight wood - the glue/binder they use is FOOD for the mold/mildew.

The low maintenance b.s. is just that. If going again I'd use that ipe instead with gaps not tongue and groove, and cover the deck with an overhang.

I had the older Correct deck installed on my front porch and rear deck. Last year I added an addition deck using correctdesk CX, what a difference, I have to clean the my deck every 2 weeks to keep the mold off the original correctdeck. Obviously they realize they have a problem!

I have been away from the site for several weeks and thought to check in again. I am so glad that someone has contacted a lawyer for some legal advice. I will also look into that and keep everyone posted. That email from the person refering to all the "chatter" is needless, it is just a matter of cleaning just made my blood boil! Unless you are the one who spent the money and are dealing with such an ugly product with "high" maintenance would you understand. I am in MD and very much want something to move to the next step instead of continuing with the same complaints. I think we all know that we all agree on the downfalls of this product. Even though it has been some time that I haven't been writing, I am dedicated 100% to bring this to some resolution. One of the two gentleman who came out to my house was Scott Schmidt who is the Mid-Atlantic Sales Manager. I have emailed him and a couple others with a detailed email and have not heard a response. Requesting a meeting to discuss this and come to some resolution. As I figured, I would not hear back. Let's take this to the next step instead of repeating all of the complaints we know are valid!

I have been reminded of the perils of a class action lawsuit. No matter how many millions may be won, the law firm (s) will get a significant cut. What's left will be divided between us. Depending on how many strong we are, we may not recoup our investments.

On the stain side, the Olympic stain that I used about 1 month ago is still causing water to bead on the sample. Cannot recommend yet, but so far, so good.

I can't believe that CD isn't testing everything they can get their hands on to determine what might seal the pours that hold the mold. Seams this would be much cheaper than lawsuits and bad publicity.
