    Trex/Composite decking.

    Has anyone used a brightener on a wood deck that has Trex / Composite decking? I did a search but nothing related to this question. Reason I ask is, I have several decks at an apartment complex we are starting on, and some are really bad with mold and etc. All the STEPS on these are Trex / composite. Would like to neutralize and brighten the wood after we clean them with the SH solution. Will OX damage or discolor the Composite steps on these?? Thanks!!

    Not sure the Ox would help. Do a test spot and let us know.

    Got in touch with a contractor friend. He had a busted 6 foot piece of composite deck flooring. This was a light Gray in color. I mixed a 20:1, 15:1, 10:1 mixture of OX. After applying these to different areas on the board with a dwell time of 10 minutes, rinsing with a garden hose and letting the board dry in the sun. Found the 20:1 to cause no discolor or damage i could see. The next two seemed to be more of a light white shading to those areas showing on the light gray color. The caps and steps at the apartment complex are the brick red color. Yea......going to hold off on brightening the wood on these!!!!!
