We bought a deck in 2013 from Menards that was supposed to be a low maintenance deck. It started out tan in color and after 3 months, It turned a pasty light grey and looked like it was 20 years old.
We contacted Menard's, the company Midwest Manufacturing, and neither one will take ownership of the fact that this decking is a flawed decking and will not do anything about it. We have gone through the BBB about this and Menard's keeps saying that there were pamphlets that we "should have" received that showed that the that after 2-3 months, this decking would "gray out".
Had we been given or shown this pamphlet, we would have never purchased this decking. We wanted tan decking and not gray decking that looked like it was 20 years old.
Do not buy the Ultra Deck from Menard's-you will be very unhappy!
Monetary Loss: $2000.
