Composite Decking


Hi everybody. A costumer of mine wants me to install a composite decking called " CrossTimber ", made by Elk. Does anyone know this product and have any idea how good it is? What is the general consensus about which is the best composite decking material out there?
thanks for you input

PEX is best. Don't let anyone tell you different.

I guess PVC ain't worth it, no one claims it to be the best decking material.

We really like our cast iron deck. Did give a thought on a 17 gauge chrome but decided cast iron.
