Elevated 8 feet high cedar deck floor, cedar railing with pressure treated beams, joists and posts was installed in 2003.
A third of the cedar floor boards were rotting at ends and found out later that the ledger board was rotting. Decided to install Trex Transcend Tiki Torch floor with Lava Rock border and black aluminum railing from http://www.alumarail.com/ that is manufactured to your deck measurements. Advantage of maintenance free without spending 3 days every 3 years to pressure wash, sand and stain.
Art and Andrei from Demex Decks did a high quality job for above plus install replacement ledger boards, joists and two posts (to make deck floor level). An older neighbour with multiple trades stated from his inspection that deck was high quality construction and joked that the deck would out live me in my mid fifties.
