    we used the new composite decking. not the trek brand but similar. we found it a grossmans bargain outlet. i don't know if you have those in ny, but they have them in southern new england. it was around half the price of what they had at home depot and lowes. we did use pressure treated for the base and railing though. all together we spent around $800 for a 12x20 deck. we installed it ourselves. we chose the composite because there are no splinters and it never needs painting or staining. good luck.

    Good ole pressure treated is the best for the money, buy the #1 grade and you'll be fine. People don't realize that the trex and all those others in that category are only warranted for 10 yrs, alot of money for a short life, give it some thought. Good luck Les the painter

    Guys, there most certainly is an Orange County in New York. If you don't know the answer, you shouldn't reply. The area code is, indeed, 845.
