Contractor still needs to clean up and county has to inspect.
I had started looking into this back early in the year and sought advice here. Got a bid from Lowes that I did not like in May then waited til end of summer and got three more bids. One I liked and chose was 2nd lowest.
At my age, definitely not a DYI project but there was a lot of work on choice of materials and finding a good contractor and I appreciated advice from this group.
I chose Trex because it is essentially maintenance free and oldest on the market of all the synthetics. These materials need time to go through their growing pains as Trex did. Bad comments were on light stability and mold resistance of early Trex which have been cured. I might have gone Azex but it cost over 1/3rd more.
