Terrible product

Comment:
I purchased timbersil in April 2012 to make a deck at a premium cost because the company claimed it had a very long life compared to other deck products. I had it installed by an experienced carpenter. After the first year the Behr stain I had applied started to peel and I reapplied it. After the second year it peeled again and black areas started to show. No there are spots in the floor boards where it is totally rotted out.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
