Jimbo, I build decks and other things for a living. I do wish that you would thoroughly research the use of ALL Simulated decking material before you committ.
Trex is a joke down in the hot weather and hot sun. Many mock up display decks have been pulled from display due to warping, twisting, and checking.
Redwood or CCA Treated Wood is still a very good choice. Can you beat 15 to 20 years anyway?
Just check it out
