  • Boards are warped and in cold it makes cracking noises like it's frozen
  • December 14, 2016

I really wanted to like this decking. It looks nice but when it's cold outside I walk on my porch and I can hear cracking like the boards are frozen. The boards are warped and you have to really force them in place to maintain an even gap. I did my other porch about two years ago with Style Selections decking from the blue store. I have had no problems with that and the boards were all completely straight. Unfortunately I bought this because it was cheaper now I regret it. Fiberon is one of the highest priced decking brands out there. Veranda is probably the stuff that did not make their quality control checks.

Warped boards required clamps to straighten on install. Factory cut ends were not straight. Outside boards were strapped too tight and had gouges. Other boards (about 10%) were scratched and nicked. Not NEARLY as good a product as advertised. Just installed - we'll see how it holds up.....

Installed 400sf of this decking one year ago. So far it has held up very well. I would highly recommend pre-drilling before you screw them down. We did not take the time to do that and looking back, wish we would have done it Every screw has mushroomed but unless you are looking for it, it isn't really noticeable with the furniture. Also, if your deck requires shoveling, you will need to be careful because the shovel scratched it last winter. Overall, we are pleased with it so far.

  • January 10, 2018

Ends were not square and therefore I had to cut the end of each board (in most cases both ends) to square them up. Even with deck stringers at 16" OC, the boards are still wavy. I wanted to use the hidden fasteners, but when I called the manufacturer I was informed that if I were to create notches in the side of the boards to accommodate the fasteners, I would void the warranty. OK, so I decided I would just screw the deck down utilizing their special screws, but my local Home Depots did not stock these screws so I had to drive 50 minutes each way to the closest Home Depot that carried them (even though I have 5 Home Depots within about 10 miles of me). The final problems were that even those screws "mushroomed" slightly and were very expensive! The biggest problem I have with this decking (and the one that carries the most liability) is that it is extremely slippery, no matter if it's wet or dry. I have slipped numerous times (as have my guests) and I have actually fallen 2 times. The only benefits (and therefore the 2 stars instead of none or 1) is that it cleans easily. Possibly it is so slippery nothing can stick to it?

As a contractor using this for the first time I was disappointed in this product. It looks great finished, but was very hard to work with compared to wood. My project was a 16' deck, framed out so that we'd have 7/8" overhang. The boards I received ranged in length from 16' 7/8" to 16' 4+ inches. Half the boards curved badly upon taking the shrink wrap off after delivery. It adds time to the job to be constantly be re-spacing the boards to keep em straight. My most major complaint here is the uneven lengths and the uneven cuts, honestly do you guys have inspectors. On my 16" deck, one side should not have to have been cut. If those boards, being composite were indeed square I could have got em up, then just a little trim in the end, nice and clean. Nope had to square up every (insert any swear word here) board. 32 unnecessary cuts, DO YOU PEOPLE NOT HAVE INSPECTORS, OR DO YOU JUST NOT CARE ! Because the boards were wiggly I had to use hundreds of nails to set the space, about twice as many as I'd usually need. All this extra work added over 30 % labor to the job and I'm a contractor who doesn't go back, I just eat it. Okay now the good part, looks awesome, install came out perfect, (yes, I got it on straight and square) I like the pattern. It's hot under the sun, but wood is too. I'm going to give this product a two because it looks so nice finished, and I would recommend it if the boards all came in a standard length and were square on the ends which in my case they were not.

Boards are not straight so expect to spend time clamping or pulling on them when installing. Many boards have a black tar-like substance on them. This can be removed with tar remover but should not be necessary to do that. Some boards on the outside of the pallet had gouges from the strapping. The boards look good, however - will see how they hold up.

This company is an absolute fraud. I purchased over $4,000 in decking about 6 years ago. Within a year the boards began to shrink. It got to the point that the gaps in between were over an inch wide and became a hazard. I contacted the manufacturer to file a warranty claim and was told they would not honor the 20 year warranty because they do not cover shrinkage. Buyer beware, I would buy another product.

I surfaced a roughly 16 by 16 elevated deck with this material. It cuts very well. I took the advice and pre-drilled the spacing holed (2 holes across by 16 inch joist centers) using special deck screws (I do not like the hidden fasteners - sounds like a nightmare if you need to change out a board following BBQ accidents and such). Installation was clean. I needed to plan to "bend" these boards into square as on their own, they will twist. Not hard using guides and clamps. I also used several washers on a bolt to offer consistent board to board spacing. I chose not to screw down the full 16 inch span (leaving the outer 2 fee unsecured) hearing that linear heat expansion (they do get quite hot in the sun) could eventually dislodge screws, via weaken joist connections. I also needed to use a router to grind out the clearances around various obstructions. Material routed well. I had original concerns that the single color grain surface, and hearing reviews about being slippery when wet would be downsides. It appears their roughly 2 foot grain cycle is serious enough to add roughness to the surface and *using back and forth grain alignments" works. The color seems to be consistent. I did need to go to several local home depots to get the quantities I needed. This is a heavy product, so I also needed a more serious vehicle that could accommodate the 16 footers in numbers. All in all (so far), satisfied with this product.

  • Installed 2 Years Ago - Still Looks Great
  • May 13, 2015
  • Recommended Product

Rebuilt a deck - replacing wood with Veranda Brown decking material. Easy to work with - saws and drills just like wood. After two years, it looks as good as it did when we installed it. We like both the color and textured "grain." Meanwhile, the wood railings, which were stained at the time of the decking installation, need to be stained again. Highly recommend this product!

  • Boards were warped when delivered
  • October 29, 2016

Bought 108 12' pieces to redo my parents deck. The decking is nice looking but about half the boards were warped to begin with. Also on at least 1/3 of them the ends were not cut straight. In order to install the boards straight they had to be pushed while being screwed in. When I replaced my deck I bought the cheap boards at the other store and they came out perfectly straight with no extra effort needed.
