Decking: PVC or Composite - any advice?
EllessebeeNovember 5, 2012
We're building a new deck and the contractor has recommended TimberTech composite or Azek PVC. Lumber yard also recommended Gossen PVC. I have read and heard conflicting things about durability, scratch resistance, slippery surface and most of all heat retention and radiation (ouch!) Prices are roughly the same for the ones I have looked at that are aesthetically acceptable. NOTE: the deck will be in direct sun. Thanks for any advice or experience you can share.
