Comment on Genovations decking

user-6870177 | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

We were talked into buying Genovations decking by our builder.  It is super-easy to install because it fits together so well.  And it supposedly slip-free as it has a textured surface.  However, because it fits together so well, there is absolutely no drainage, so it is impossible to clean.  And, if there is frost, since there is no drainage it freezes over just like a deck that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.  I absolutely hate it.

    Another satisfaction comment - I have 1-1/4" brick pavers (no grout) over a wood deck and like it. No maintenance needed.

      great idea. I did that with concrete pavers on several wood decks at a resort. Best of both worlds. A patio without the weeds.
