I'm replacing a small ground level porch with composite decking. I'm researching all of the different brands and getting overwhelmed. Looking for a little advice.
So here's my specific situation:
- Most of decking material will be covered, so no issues with direct sunlight and rain/snow/other elements
- I have lots of kiddos that'll be trampling all over it, as well as dogs, rabbits, chickens. So, not terribly worried about having perfect appearance for many years. I'm fine with a scratch or stain here or there over the life of it.
- I'm most intrigued about a lower maintenance requirement and no splinters.
With those specifics, would I be fine getting a lower cost material. Like a HD Veranda. Or the "Good" level of Trex (Select). Or are the cheaper ones so poorly made that I should avoid them, at all costs. Do I need to spring for the expensive stuff, if it won't be exposed to the elements and I'm not overly concerned with perfect appearance.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
