Comment:
After one season with our new decking we noticed some of the slats and railing tops warping. They are in the direct west sun. the floor decking is separating from each other. we contacted the business we bought the Fiberon from and someone came out and took pictures and sent them to the manufacturer. the manufacturer gave us a small amount of money to replace some of the pieces but, not all. the manufacturer said it was the installers problem that they didn't install it correctly. We need help on what we can do to correct this terrible looking deck. Can anyone help?

All,<br />I wish I would have looked at the consumer test results before buying. The first year the deck looked great. At two years old, I noticed these black quarter size spots all over my grey deck. After reading the reviews, I knew what I had-I wish someone would have told me to seal it when they first put it down, but this is why I bought composite, so I wouldn't have to stain/seal. I called my sales agent, but there was nothing he could do, but he did take some pictures and sent them to the company. He said to buy some cleaner, he even brought some over that didn't work. I have tried 6 different cleaners and the best one is Clorox composite deck cleaner that I put down at the higher than recommended strength and about half of the mold/mildew spots disappeared in the places I used. I wish they had that plastic wrapping composite when I bought this as its not that much more, but the cost to replace now is not what I'm prepared to do-I wish the company would have done that for free or at least a very discounted price. Oh well. I hope this helps someone.
