I have seen Trex boards used for decking and walkways along coastal areas quite a bit on my trip so far. It is great for applications that you don't want to have to do maintaince on that get a lot of weather. I got an earful of praise for the stuff from a National Park Service maintenance guy, the NPS is a big buyer of Trex.

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
