We also are trying to find a good deck builder in the Marlton area who isn't going to try to rape us.

That's ben my experience.
A little advice I'd like to add, if ya dont mind...
Definitely get something with a raised grain, so it's not so slippery when wet.
Consider using hidden fasteners if possible. They do add a few dollars to the bill, material-wise, but give you a much cleaner look in the end. And lastly, think long and hard about stair placment if you can. Folks tell me, "It's just a big, flat deck. What do ya mean think about stairs and stuff?" But traffic flow, where you place your grill and table and such, matters. It can make the difference between a deck you like, and a deck you love.
Good luck. And I hope this isnt gonna interfere with our fall fishing

I have to hire someone to do it as I am not capable of doing it myself. Do you know of a reputable deck installer who is looking for work and won't rape me? Might you be interested in the job? You can touch base with me on my cell 856-701-3260.

Friends of ours have a deck that was built using Trex, and it doesn't look so good. It seems to have a lot of mold spots (or something that looks like mold) that really don't look good.
If you still need a contractor, let me know. The guy that did my deck is from Sicklerville, and he was great. I don't have his number with me tonight since I'm on the road, but I can get it. Send me a PM if you want it.
