We replaced our old 12' x 12' pressure treated wood decking with Azek 3 years ago, and like it enough to start planning to do the same on our front porch. Cortex hidden screws worked great. The deck boards have been easy to clean. No stains yet. Slate Gray color has not become noticeably faded. Azek's railing system has worked out well also.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
My husband and I expanded our front porch to a 20 x 12 deck and chose Azek for the qualities I mention. This was a DYI project. We have had it for 3-1/2 years in brutal Alaskan winter and our 20 hours of summer sun. We love that it is easy to keep clean - whether sweeping or shoveling. We are careful not to stomp with our ice cleats but use it as an extension of our living room. We have not had any sagging, fading, stains, or scratches. The only concern so far is locating the proper salt to help remove ice during our freeze/thaws during the winter. We love it so much we are planning on replacing our back deck with the same product.
