    we used the decking shown to put in our front deck and wheel chair ramp about 8 yrs ago.. it is fantastic, and so have also put a larger deck on the back area with this great planks and railing.. wonderful, would never go to real wood as our neighbor did a year after we put up the front and he has to replace flooring in several places as it is rotting...

    we used this also but ours is not so elaborate. Just a 12x12 out master bedroom. My problem is : It is on the west side of the house and gets so nasty HOT than we can not use it in the evening.!! Thinking of an awning but they are so expensive.

      @Ruth K Thanks for your comment. Many people have this problem. A shade umbrella might help you out -- especially the "offset" umbrellas which extend out so that the base isn't underfoot. These can shade an area of 11 feet wide etc. Anyway, just a thought.

    I have always loved composite decks. They're much sturdier and more reliable than traditional materials, and they look the same, sometimes better. This one specifically looks amazing, I'd love to have a deck that nice on my home. Thanks for writing! http://www.kellyfradet.com/trex

    This deck looks awesome! I think the stairs add a really nice touch. I also love how even the wood is. http://www.dfsinstall.com/decks/
