Decking: Reborn Planks

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
This environmentally friendly decking is made with 90% post-consumer (recycled) plastics (such as milk jugs). The 2 x 4's and 2 x 6's in this deck are made of HDPE (high density polyethylene).

This plastic lumber doesn't need typical deck maintenance (such as staining) and is guaranteed against splitting, rotting and cracking for 50 years.

Because it's a solid material, the color won't fade. Color choices are white, black, red, gray, redwood, tan, cedar and forest green.

The manufacturer recommends use of #10 stainless steel deck screws, pre-drilled and countersunk.
