COMPOSITE DECKING IS A FAIRLY YOUNG CATEGORY and, as such, is still evolving. The manufacturer of CorrectDeck CX says the product is just another step in that progress. Because it has been treated with SafeGuard, the product resists grease stains, mold, and mildew. It also contains a UV-inhibitor to resist color fading. Cost: $2.25 to $2.75 per lineal foot.
