Here is a list of pros and cons fro composite decking:

PROS

*Last a long time, in fact some are rated for a lifetime

*Virtually no maintenance

*It will not rot

CONS

*No matter how long the top lasts, the frame is still wood and subject to rot. So don't be mislead by the lifetime guarantee

*Walking barefoot on a "splinterless" composite deck in the full sun is equivalent to walking a hot shingles in full sun. Composite material is absolutely unbearable in full sun.

*Its extremely expensive

*The coating can be scratch and or nicked. It is susceptible to damage just like wood

*Fading is possible
