I am in the planning stages for constructing a new deck that will connect to our inground pool. The deck will be large (about 1,000 sf) and I have recently been hearing of the many problems with pressure treated pine decking. It warps, splinters, checks, etc. I would love to construct this deck with a good hardwood that won't do the things that I mentioned, like Ipe, but I don't think I can swing the pricetag. Has anyone recently constructed a pressure treated pine deck? How is it holding up? I guess I shouldn't say recently because it may be more valuable if someones deck was 5+ years old to see how it is doing. Any feedback is appreciated.
Here is a copy of my plan:
