OK, here's the last of my Timbertech saga. Its 8 years old and I hate Timbertech. I hope they had their pants sued off. I was going to replace it with Azek this year or next, but due to financial constraints, I thought I'd give one more try with a coating. Last year we had one coat of a Pittsburgh Paint Composite deck coating. I did not think it was a heavy enough coat and needed a second coat. It was like painting a porous, it took more paint than estimated. But rains came and we could not get on that second coat until this summer. There was a considerable amount of mold before I cleaned it in preparation for the second coat. I did the second coat this summer, took me 6 hours in 90 degree heat (wish the inventor of Timbertech was there to join me), but the result has been a waterproof coating that has not molded all summer. (yet). I don't know how long this coating will last, but it has bought us one more seaon until we sink the money into AZEK. Having a painted surface does not look top notch, but it looks better than mold. I would definitely recommend coating an old ugly moldy Timbertech deck with a composite stain, 2 coats. Or else just tear it out and use AZEK. That is all. The end. I am never doing all that again.

I remember my mom having us paint our deck when we were growing up. We always had really hot summers so we would be drenched in sweat after just a few minutes. We always did 2 coats of paint so that it would last longer. I hated those summers and vow to never make my kids do that if I ever have a deck.

timbertech deck 3 yrs. old. After using composite cleaner this yr. it has left huge white spots. Have reapplied solution again and scrubbed many times does not budge. This part of the deck is in the shade. Any solutions.
