The composite deck problem seems to affect most
manufacturers. Most say mold and mildew are to be expected
and the industry has changed its claim from "no maintenance"
to "low maintenance." NBC Action News
"Heat build up , mold issues, warp and wane, mushrooms
around the fasteners in some cases. The list goes on with
some variation depending on the brand."

Is Composite Decking the Best Decking Material?
Big advertising dollars have been spent to persuade home improvement consumers to believe that composite decking material has no maintenance and has the longest life expectancy.
If you do some searching on Google for "Composite Decking Complaints" or you can take any major brand name of composite decking and add the word complaints at the end of your Google search and you will find all kinds of comments and pictures from unhappy composite deck owners.
The truth is that most composite deck material has not been thoroughly tested but it has been thoroughly marketed. That's why most home owners think composite decking is a great choice. Many people are also lured in by the long warranties these companies offer but if you do some research on that as well you will see that many companies after realizing their product does not hold up like they promised end up shutting down their company and then open a new company under a different name that way they don't have to deal with the warranty issues when their product fails.
Composite decking manufacturers are quick to admit that their products are not perfect :
is common to find detailed cleaning instructions included with manufacturers
Most manufacturers suggest periodic cleanings with deck cleanser to prevent the buildup of mold and mildew
Composite decking is weaker than wood.
presence of mold adversely affects human health
imitated but never duplicated
The results are astonishing and worth the investment
