We are getting estimates from contractors to build a screened porch near a beach area. I now have the task of deciding which decking/flooring to use. A few neighbors have used Azek, Trex and Epay. The screened porch will back to woods and the back part of the porch faces north, the side, east, so it will receive a fair amount of shade year-round, meaning mold and moss.

So, looking for the best decking for this environment. SOmething that will withstand hot, humid summers, shade and moss, possibly, mold, Oh, and did I mention LOW maintenance! :)

The ceiling will probably be a beaded soffett in vinyl, as well as vinyl railing Any and all information is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
