I just put up a metal framed deck with composite decking. Besides rinsing it down with the hose it’ll be maintenance free. Took about a week because I used helical piers.Anyone ever build a deck? Ours is a POS after getting beat down by the sun for years. We tried power washing + scraping old "deck paint" + chemicals and then re-painting (with Behr Deckover) a few years ago and it didn't even last a full year.
Now trying to determine if we should replace the top-decks + railing + steps, or rip the whole mf down and start over. And whether we should use pressure treated vs. cedar vs. composite wood. I'm leaning composite because the sun + dry heat here causes problems for the other types.
