Re: Recycled wood for Decks?

You'll probably get more input if you post this in the Home and Garden section.

Composite is a nice looking product for sure, and the maintenance is low.
It is, however, substantially more expensive than 5/4 deck boards.
Few random items; IIRC, it requires 12" on centre joist spacing, so putting on an existing 16" o.c. deck will be more work . The boards tend to get quite hot in the summer sun, so going barefoot is not fun.
