i'm a ditch digger, not a wood jockey....i have a house built in 1976 on a lake. the house has weathered vertical cedar siding which is still in very good condition. there is a deck that wraps around 3 sides of the house, "approx. 1800 sq ft"...made of redwood. now the question. the redwood decking needs to be replaced. knots are falling out, ends of boards becoming rotted. can't afford to replace with redwood. questions are...
1. should i redo this with cedar?
2. shall i go with some of the new plastic stuff? if so, what brands?
it's my wife's concern that we keep the "look" of what is there now.
