I pd over $17,000 for a deck with 2 stairways.(we have exposed basement, so a 2nd story deck)in 2006. After only 1 year the deck was faded. 2nd yr it got mildew & a green moss or algae type growth. It gets plenty of sun so I don't know why it would get mold/algae. It's got a rough texture & is so faded now. I was just talking with my husband about cleaning & putting a clear sealer on it. The whole purpose of composite deck was to have maintainence free. I am not happy to have to maintain it! I am afraid that once I seal it, I will have to every year!

Deck was installed in 2001 and now it leaves a chalky powder on your hands when you touch it and the light grey color is black with mold. Only power washing takes off the mold but it returns year after year. I see all the boards disintegrating, they look nothing like the sample piece that I saved when the deck was first built. Correct Deck filed chapter 11, so no one to sue?

Porch deck and screened in porch all have CorrectDeck planking. Originated in 2007, mold had to be removed after the second and third winters, but never returned. Decking has retained its original condition. I could not be more pleased.

There is CorrectDeck and CorrectDock which spans 24". Has anyone had experience or knowledge of CorrectDock? I'm considering buying it because my joists are 24" on center.

I installed the Correct Deck CX in 2007 or so and while I haven't had any mold issues I quickly saw that I had color variation in the decking boards. Some boards darker, some boards lighter. I am also getting severe chipping of the "capped color coating" and I don't know if there is anything I can do to prevent it from further deterioration. Can I simply apply something like Thompsons waterseal to protect the areas exposed by the chipping? Any suggestions would be welcome. I've had it 10+ years so I guess I can't complain much, but I thought it was supposed to last longer than this.
