Hi Jim,
Iâ??m also trying to decide on a re-decking material. Consumer Reports is in 
the process of evaluating decking material, but since the tests are over a long 
span of time they have limited data.  Iâ??m also concerned about the potential 
temperature of the decking material as I have a dog..  Consumer Reports judged 
the Azak decking as cooler, relatively speaking, than the other decking they 
have been testing.  Most decking  companies  will tell you that their lighter 
wood colors are cooler than darker wood colors.
        Iâ??d also be interested in the experience of others.
