splits, discolors, won't hold any finish in exposed exterior use, only where under cover. This requires annual (at least) sanding and finishing of a large deck, leaving the entire (eave-covered) edge looking like a different product. A very expensive, labor intensive experiment with green intentions.

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.
