Overall a great product, looks great and we are very happy with it. It was easy to install and work with, make sure to use a really nice quality blade when cutting it to keep the sharp edges. I would recommend doing your joists at 12" on center when using these as you can feel a little bit of the give when the joist are at 18" on center. Overall once it is properly attached, even with joists at 18" on center, it feels nice and firm in place. The material does get pretty warm when in direct sunlight for extended periods of time, I feel like more then our previous standard pressure treated lumber deck. That is just something to keep in mind, the sun doesn't directly hit our deck until about 2 PM, so we can be out there barefoot until 3 ish and then we just make sure to wear flip flops. A quick spray with the hose will cool it down pretty quickly again.
Overall we are extremely happy with the look and feel of the product, we did the install and it was easy to work with and I would buy it again. I'm going to purchase more when we decide to resurface our smaller deck as well.

Would definitely not recommend this products.
1. Decking gets EXTREMELY hot when exposed to the sun. Not able to walk on it barefoot.
2. Do not use standard deck screws on this. The screws countersink, but the material does not compress, rather it creates a little mound over the screw head.
3. The material is VERY DENSE and HEAVY, but the interior is some rubbery material which makes it difficult to drill and cut and it smells like some weird perfume.
4. Boards sag even with 2' on center joists.
5. Has a kind of "plasticy" look to it. Not foolin' anyone that it is wood.
Can't wait to get rid of these things.
Contrary to Fiberon saying this decking material will not "warp" or "stain," it DOES warp and stain. Also, when I filed a claim with Fiberon about the decking they would NOT stand behind it. I would NOT recommend this decking material to a friend for fear they would get the same results I did.

I spent a lot of money on what I thought was a nice deck. This past winter I was shoveling a path for my door to get down the deck (seems like a normal behavior). It completely scratched up the entire deck. Now it looks awful. I called and they said their warranty does not cover. Spend the extra money for something else.
