EcoLife EL2 0.19pcf -already cupping

Comment:
Ecolife by Cox was used for the floor decking of a 20x 8 deck and is already cupping only after a month of being installed and stained with TPC. The manufacture says that the kiln drying process reduces cupping, well in our case, I would stir clear of this wood, and don't pay the extra money, definitely not worth it.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
