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.
