I have yet to see an external fake teak deck that looked good after a couple of seasons. And before someone mentions the obvious, that's across the brands.

It's the joints/sealant that let it down, IMO.

I disagree the flexiteak I had was great in all weathers after 6 years of hard use . Just has to be put down right to start with. No way would real teak have lasted so well just an occasiosnal jet wash ( once in all that time is very occasional ! )
