Planning on building a deck around my aboveground pool and I was wondering about the composite decking. I understand that it can get warm but is it tolerable? Does it scratch easily? How does a saltwater system affect it? Is it slippery when wet? And all the pros and cons that you could help me out with. Thanks

I have built around 1000 sf of deck using Choicedek from Lowes. It is great stuff. If it has any cons I haven't run into them yet.

Made in US
Not too hot
Not slippery
Easy to work with
Made with mostly recycled stuff
Can be installed with hidden fasteners
