A friend of mine installed a couple of square metres of Modwood four years back and to install was just as easy as timber. The little side clips were a bit fiddly but you don't end up seeing any nail holes - a plus in my book and there is zero maintenane with this product apart from the odd hosing down and sweep with a broom. After two years though it has faded a bit ( faces due north so sun all day long ) and to me it looks just too plasticky.
I understand that the composition of this has since been improved a lot in the meantime.
Timber decking put down in this same place would have faded a lot more and requires a lot more maintenance.
I've heard of some of the other artificial decking materials but have no experience with them.
