MoistureShield Vantage

Comment:
This is the mid line MoistureShield product. I have the Vantage designed for use with hidden fasteners. The decking does not get hot in direct sunlight. It is not rough on your feet when you walk on it barefoot. The texture is enough that in the winter time you don't slip. This particular model comes with a 20 year limited lifetime warranty.<br /><br />The one problem I've noticed with this product is the staining. I keep my grill on this decking. The grill is on an oil proof spill mat. However, some oil from a spatula on the utensil hanger on the side dripped onto the decking. It has taken quite some time for this to wear off. I even tried power washing this area. That has helped tremendously.<br /><br />With that said, I would absolutely recommend this product for use in your home!
