I sell approximately 250,000 dollars worth of Trex Transcends a year and I haven't had one complaint. Rails included.

Absolutely not, it's a very legitimate question, it gets asked often. There's a lot of ***** slapping that goes on because of differences in opinion. But it makes for very colorful threads, to say the least. :laughing:

i sell Timber Tech Terrain to the price sensitive, not color sensitive customers. On my jobs I have to lug more stuff around I try and push AZEK because its lighter, lol. I also consider going Genovations at times, I never like gorilla decking, but I have samples.

For new construction we use TT reliaboard because its rock bottom price

I sell Trex because it's what my customers ask for, I've tried selling them other stuff but it's like trying to sell a samsung to an apple customer, even though it's better they are dead set on Apple.

Actually that's incorrect... those posts will last over 25 years and even then it's pretty easy to replace posts, I think you know that though.
I know I'm just giving you chit.

That's a mighty big if in some of our cases but, if I had to choose between those on your list it would be the fiberon because it looks the best. The only other of the list I would consider would be timbertech.

Anyone else notice that Robert has a tv up and the decking down before there are even shingles on the roof?

If I were doing it for myself then I'd probably use Fiberon Pro-Tect in chestnut because I like the Fiberon but I'm pretty poor. Azek railings.

I completely agree about the futility of trying to convert a customer sold on Trex to any other brand. Why bother? Sign the contract. Except for the rails. They look and feel like plastic to me.:no:
