Like Mike said it's not trex. It's a storage thing. Trex has pretty high QC thing.

I said come get that chit and bring me another batch. Hopefully it will be here this afternoon or tomorrow morning. We will see. Maybe the super, duper Camo Edge-X-Clips, recommended by CITYDECKS, will pull that chit down. Thank, KAP

That rep is ridiculous. He might also tell you that camo is not on approved list of fasteners. .... yet anyway. .here's the way its going to down. If a board comes loose its the wood or screw issue. Np go add a screw and plug and move on. If the board started to fade or decompose etc....thats a trex issue. There is no way in hell the camo clip can contribute to board failure.

If the eye of sandy came down on that deck and it got ripped to chitt..... run like hell because that's an act of God falls under home owner insurance. There's more important things worry about then fasteners holding at 200mph.

Thanks Mike. BTW Hope you are doing good on your hip recovery. Dear WIFE just had LH hip replaced 6 weeks ago. RH side was done in Nov 2017 and works great. She was back on her horse in less than 6 months.

Joel
6 months?!... good on her, but don't tell Cali that... geez, give the guy a chance to milk it will ya'?!...

Have you seen the sandwiches and pies she brings him?...

Re: Trex Enhance Delivered Warped


I'm having some issues. May need to have the hardware removed. I'm chattering/clicking when I walk.

Re: Trex Enhance Delivered Warped


Thanks for all the tips. Sorry I forgot to post final project but here it is.
Sent all the bad Trex back. Trex rep replaced it with straight boards. Cost me several days but all good in the end.
Ended up installing on diagonal. Pool is not square with deck. What a pain in the a55! Thanks for the advice on the Camo X-Clips.
Here are a few finished pics. Owner loves it. Next year he wants vinyl railings and main deck redone $$$$$.

P.S. I don't clean pools!
Thanks again everyone!!!

Yes Sir. That is Foggy Wharf. I kinda like the color. Maybe light enough to not get 200 degrees in the summer.

I don't know... in retrospect, if it was so out of square with the deck. that previous warped stock might've been a little help...

Nice job...
