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.

Hi! Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate you sharing your
thoughts as well as of the final result. The gate looks amazing. We are
extremely sorry about the damage issues that incurred during shipping. Our
deck boards do generally hold up as day to day decking use. Additionally,
we also offer a DeScratch kit wax pen to fix minor scratches. However,
shipping can be quite egregious, which may do more damage than normal wear
and tear. While we understand we were not able to address this sooner, due
to time constraints, we are happy to further discuss replacement with you.

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.
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 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.
Nice quality that cuts and looks well! A few drawbacks,...

Nice quality that cuts and looks well! A few drawbacks, the surface seems to scratch easily and screws needed to go into a pre-drilled hole. Even with that, there is some end splitting. Overall, very pleased as we used this for cold frames. The material is stable and won't compromise our organic vegetables.
