What's the problem with running barefoot? I bought a house last year and the prior owner had put a Trex deck on it. I agree with many on the fact that it's probably not worth the money particularly when you don't know exactly how it's going to hold up. But, this deck is 3 years old and look perfect IMHO. The only thing Trex is the flooring as it's inlaid as a design. My favorite thing about is that it's much better to walk on bare-foot compared to wood decks I've had before. No splinters and slightly textured so it's never slippery, what am I missing?
