Is composite decking needed on a screened porch?
We've had a treated pine deck for 16 years. It gets professionally cleaned and stained every other year. It is still in really good shape. I want to add a screened porch with eze breeze panels (movable vinyl panels over screening).
1. Is it time to replace the decking at the same time? How long realistically can the decking last? I live in Maryland, we get all 4 seasons.
2. I like the pine and have been worried about all the problems I have been reading with the composites even though everyone seem to value the composites. I am skeptical that composite decking would add much to a screened porch since it would not be exposed to the elements that much. Opinions?
