In addition to the comments Rich made about Tierra Nueva's trex, I have one more comment. It is maintenance free, if left unstained. Ours is weathering to a sandy grey that I find just fine, especially since there will be no need, ever, to paint it. Trex can be stained or painted, but then you start the maintenance cycle. We used trex on our upstairs deck, since I have an aversion to buying anything redwood, unless recycled or reused. The boards had to be drilled and screwed. Recently another coho family built their deck with a new product which has tongue in groove so that it can be put together securely. It looks marvelous. By the way, trex is more expensive to use than wood. But I think it is well worth it on many levels. coheartedly, Patty Mara Tierra Nueva, Cen. CA Coast
