Trex barely costs more than pressure treated pine these days and this new pressure treated lumber doesn't last for poo. 

Ok I'm sold then.  I'm a deck dummy. If I use composite (been looking at timber tech) for the top boards all the framing is still pressure treated lumber right? If your dad is in Charlotte I'd be happy to have him quote it when I'm ready

Yeah, use regular pressure treated but put the trex tape over them. Don't skip this step or your frame will 100% rot out from under your decking.

Just looked at timbertech and they have a good better best option

Best was 100 dollars more then timber

Better was 400 bucks cheaper

Good was like 1200 bucks cheaper

I sold my house last year for 110% more what I paid for it in 2014. More than double

 

Thankfully I bought my new home in Jan 2020, right before this ridiculousness. Took 18 months to fix it up becuase of labor and material shortages (windows by itself took 10 months to come in - ridiculous)

Just a word of warning, Timbertech scratches really easily. Trex doesn't.

Good to know, I had read several reviews saying it was much better quality then trex.
