I bought 25 Boards costing slightly under $1000.00 bucks. These were not gonna be used for a deck, but for a custom 12 ft. gate. I don't know how they could possibly hold up as a deck that people walk on. I believe that they would not hold up to scratches etc. for very long. These boards scratch very easily, and unlike regular wood, you cannot sand them ane refinish them. I would not buy this product again.

Looked good for a few months and then the ends lifted. Customer service is a joke. Just keep asking for more pics of the deck. After looking online at others having the same experience I'd stay away from Newtech products if they won't stand behind it.

I worked with these boards over weekend and really loved them. I would order these again. The cutting was clean and easy on the miter saw, with dust that was a little thicker than sawdust. Running the shop vac with the miter saw simultaneously made clean up a bit easier. This was way easier to clean up than the PVC boards I cut. They were a mess. These boards feel equal in quality to that of an Azek or a Trex. These feel far nicer than the Verdana bottom level boards at HD.

The product performed as advertised. However you need to heed the manufacturer's advice when not installing fasteners too close to the edge as it will shear off. I was able to "toenail" some screws where I needed them by pre-drilling the holes first. You don't have to pre-drill the holes for standard installation, however when using "non-mushrooming" screws it makes the installation a lot easier, once I realized this i pre-drilled every hole. I chose the Charcoal because it matches the hot tub, on the face of the risers I will be installing stacked stone that matches the adjacent pool. The photos are not the final product but does depict the decking. I tried to pocket screw the butt joints from underneath but that failed the material is too hard.

I bought this product to resurface a 15 year old wooden deck. I think there are a few reviews/answers in the other listings New Techwood that are a bit suspect, but I still give it 4 stars. Overall, the product is beautiful, very dense/heavy and easy to cut and work with. There are several things you MUST KNOW about using this material and I strongly recommend that you watch the manufacturer videos for deck layout and installation. First, you MUST PREDRILL for every screw. If you do not, the dimples will be significant..assuming you can get your screw to pite into the plastic skin. I am pre-drilling with a 1/8 or 9/64 bit and still get dimples. Second, YOU CANNOT place screws closer than 1.5 inches from the ends, even when predrilling. This means that if you are resurfacing a deck, you must hang sister joists wherever there is a butt joint so each end sits on its own board. If you fail to do this, there is a very, very high probability that the board will split. If you are building a new deck, be sure to place double joists where you expect butt joints to land. You also cannot "toenail" screws, especially at the ends, or the board will split. Somebody suggested edge screwing with a Kreg system, but I am certain that these boards fastened in that way will eventually fail. Third, you must make sure each joist in the deck is perfectly level. Regular wooden boards have enough structural stiffness to level uneven joists. This material does not. If a joist is high or low by 3/8 of an inch or more, you really need to level it or the deck will look like a rollercoaster. Fourth, use a 2.5 inch composite deck screw for these boards because, again, they are not rigid enough to require anything longer. Fifth, when cutting this material, the resulting"sawdust' is mostly a fluffy brown snow-like material tha clogs tools and dust collection systems. Be prepared to clean up frequently. Sixth, it is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to get a consistent screw depth using composite screws because most screws easily cut right through the pre-drilled composite material and there is no natural stop like with traditional deck screws. I am very skilled fastening regular wood and even hanging drywall, but it is impossible to consistently set screw depth with this stuff because the screws don't stop. I even tried using a drywall screw gun with no success (totally useless with star bits in any case...). And lastly, try several types of composite deck screws to test the material with. The first type I used pulled through the thinner fascia boards relatively easily, and some, particularly those that use T-20 torx/star heads cut through the board nicely but strip so easily you wil go through dozens of bits. I used a traditional surface mounted composite deck screw technique to fasten the boards using 2.5 inch composite screws and had to set the clutch on my driver to low so I could more carefully control screw depth. This took FOREVER, but the results were acceptable.

I used this composite board for a custom trolling motor bracket. It has all the right properties of being weather/water proof, workable with hand or power tools, can be drilled and tapped with precision. Can't really be glued reliably so all joints are screwed/bolted. I found actual size to be 7/8" x 5 5/8". Do like the extra thickness. Can be painted with plastic-friendly paint.

Bought this product (in the Spanish Walnut...beautiful) to replace the treated wood steps on my front porch. Although a bit on the pricey side, I'm very satisfied with the product. Yes, it scratches but I wouldn't say "easily". If you walk on it with really grimy boots, it may scratch if stones are on the boots. And yes, if you don't set the screw straight when screwing it in, the material around the hole will shear (just like it will on wood). I would love to replace all of the flooring on my porch with this as well but don't have the money right now, lol.

This material is awesome. I needed to created a shim/ spacer for the exterior door threshold to raise it 1/2". This is a very durable product, that cut with ease and it looks great. Maybe it should be advertised as more than just a decking material

Used this as an isolator between concrete pad and a generator. Was easy to cut to sizes I needed and since it is a composite it will last indefinitely. Good product that came in a color I liked.
