So we just poured our concrete and I've got questions about that in another thread but I left a 10x15 ft space for an essentially on-ground (2-4 inches above) wood deck just out of the backdoor. I'm considered whether "wood deck" really needs to mean wood and if so what type. I'm very interested in IPE decking, has anyone used it and if so where did you get it? I don't think I can find it locally. Good or Bad experiences with that?
What are ya'll's thoughts on the various composite decking? Seems like the most ubiquitous is TREX but I know there are a bunch of different types. I'm not sure I LOVE the fake wood aspect but if any of you have that kind of decking and just love it I'd like to hear for you too.
The theme being... what kind of "wood" should I use to build my deck?!?
