I am looking to replace a worn out redwood deck.
This is for a house in Utah. Humidity isn't an issue, but sun, heat, and cold are.
I have a home in Colorado with a Trex deck. We have some warping issues with the Trex boards, so I am exploring other possibilities.
I've seen recommendations on IPE decking materials on this forum. IPE looks interesting. Do you have to stain/seal it every year? Where do you buy IPE? I've called some of the local lumber stores and the big box home stores and they haven't even heard of the stuff.
What about all plastic decking materials (as opposed to the wood-plastic composites like Trex.) Anyone like them? What brands are reputable?
