Follow-up Trex decking
It's been about three years since I've visited here and about four years since I built my own 30 X 30 deck with gray Trex and white painted cedar. I thought I'd stop in and report how it's doing. No twists, no splinters, no spots, no sealing, no refinishing. It looks the same as the day I built it. After one year, I had some green algae trying to grow in a shady area, but washing it with some water/bleach/soap cleaned it right up. Since you shouldn't pressure wash it (too soft) I sprayed the solution on and mopped it a few strokes and hosed off. Like new. We have alot of wildlife here so we get gifts from birds and insects... with rain and just time they go away. I don't think I have any permanent stains at all. I tested a scrap piece of Trex with cranberry juice and it left a residue so we know enough not to test its' limits. I also don't recommend it with little youngsters around, theyre a little rough on things.
