Tracy, I am just finishing up a pool deck for a customer who opted for Choice-dek. This is my first time using this product and I found that the post and rail system is not only very attractive but is also very sturdy. The posts get attached to the band joists using hefty metal brackets, so some pre-build calculations (and alot of head scratching) has to be done so that the deck support posts don’t end up where the rail posts will be (if you want all the rail sections to be equal in length)
