I had been looking for an inexpensive, do-it-yourself and easy to install patio. Finding this decking system was an answer to a prayer on all levels. It was everything I was looking for. It is inexpensive compared to conventional decking, it's made in the USA, the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Installation is easy and goes quickly with two people (the pads are heavy). The components to the system perform as described. This decking will add BIG TIME to the enjoyment of summer/fall outdoor living. The only improvement I would make is to enhance the color of the "red" cedar pads. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a patio without the expense and fuss. YOU GO UDECX!!

We ordered the udecx starter kit because we are military and currently renting. This is the perfect option since we can move with it and incorporate it into our next landscape project. I was a little concerned about weather 10x10 would be big enough, so placing most of the furniture off the deck allowed us to compensate. The product was much more durable than expected and the area rug provided the product to look high end. My husband and I highly recommend this easy to assemble deck!

I usually give good reviews, but this product disappointed me. After finally getting footings in place, it seems the panels are not square, so you will see gaps within the completed deck. Any small movement in your footings will cause redos. The product is a sturdy plastic. A warning should be given that this product gets very hot to walk on in direct sunlight. This was the biggest complaint I got from family and friends, and their children...that it became extremely hot to walk on, even in 90 degree weather. So figure in a large umbrella, even outdoor carpeting to cool it, and hope the weeds don't grow through the gaps. This product isn't worth the money and if you buy, make sure you have it in shade or cool climate.

My husband and I installed (2) cedar-colored kits over uneven (solid packed) dirt in around 2 hours and it looks great, feels great. We were pleased that the cedar color was not too "pink". Very easy to assemble.
I was initially worried that only 100 lbs/sf would be flimsy, but it feels very sturdy. We did run out of 1" shims but thank God we didn't need any more.
The panels do not snap together flush - there is about a 1/4" gap between panels for expansion.
These kits/panels are also VERY heavy...we had Home Depot use the fork lift to load into our truck one at a time and then had to disassemble the box right out of the truck.
We are very pleased with this product! We can finally enjoy our backyard and it took next to 0 time and hassle. =)

Way to expensive for what you get. Glorified piece of plastic for $1,500. Does not work well on any kind of uneven ground regardless of their shims. I should have gone with a traditional deck material.

This product is simply amazing. My wife and I have been back and forth on whether to build a deck or get a concrete patio. We planned on moving within the next few years so we didn’t want to pay for something now and then pay for something all over again when we move. So we decided to put in the back burner UNTIL we found this product. My wife and I walked in to Home Depot and they had a UDECX system set up. My wife loved it right off the bat but I was a little skeptic at first. I thought “a plastic deck yeah right.” So I walked on it and it was solid and then I started to jump on it, and I weight 220lbs, the sales rep probably thought I was nuts. But to my surprise it was extremely solid and sound. So we ordered a 10’x10’ kit plus 5 extra deck surface pads to make it a little bigger. It took me longer to unpack everything than it did to put the UDECX system down. If you follow the directions you will have no problem, even on un-level ground. I stared on my new UDECX at around 9:00am and was grilling on it by 11:30am, what other deck or patio can you do that with, and I am no contractor I spent 10yrs blowing things up in the Army so putting something together is new to me. The installation was super easy and the customer service I received from UDECX was top notch. Everyone in my neighborhood has come over to see my new UDECX and they also love it.
