In 2008 I had a new porch constructed and used Tendura Plank flooring Installed with hammer and nails (tool related).Tendura is a composite material 40% recycled plastic and 60% recycled wood fiber. I can't seen to keep paint on it as it peels where water sets. I have scraped and painted a couple of times and it is still peeling. The company is out of business, no wonder. Anyone used this product or have suggestions for a cure.

Did you check if you can paint the composite stuff? The plastic in it would make it hard to keep anything on it I would think.

Is their primer lifting, or is your paint coming off the primer? If the latter is happening, you need to find out what the mfg. recomended for paint. I have installed fiber cement siding , and they were very specific on painting their product.

Try scubbing a small section with pure vineager and a stiff wire brush. Rhen air dry with 100 psi blow gun. That should remove the loosw primer and give you somewhat "etched" surface.
How many ft2 we talkin?

H, Probably you are working on a project that does not have a happy ending. If the primer is being removed then it 's not bonding to the floor surface. Might have to locate some type of primer that is guaranteed by the manufacturer that it will bond to that particular surface. I built a porch a few years ago and used the laminate flooring,that floor has taken a lot of abuse from snow, water, mud. Continues to look nice and I have no complaints. Cheers, Murray

I was about to say the same thing. Is it paintable in the first place. I installed a porch floor called Nexwood, that sounds like it's about the same stuff, and it's not designed to be painted. The instructions claimed it would gray with time about like exposed wood. It was laid down ten years ago, along with Nexwood railings and it still looks as good as it did when it was new. Jim

Most composites are made of recycled Polyethylene which comes mostly from milk jugs or similar products and wood floor. They do not do well in direct sunlight because the Polyethylene is sensitive to heat. Polyethylene also is resistent to most chemicals which is why they make jugs out of it. If the color of the composite is extruded into the product it will fade more than vinyl or other products because of it having a low melting point. I have sold fence products for over twenty years and I have yet to find a composite I would put my name and reputation on. There is a product out there that holds up better to the elements and does not need to be painted. It is called cellular PVC. This product can be nailed and screwed like wood but has none of the negatives associated with wood. There are also deck boards that are hollow but made from PVC that have a non-skid surface that is ADA aproved that will not rot and will hold up a truck on 24" centers. The boards are reversable to show either a 12" look or a 6" look. They interlock and are put down with square head stainless steel screws. There are also facia and trim to go along with those products. Tendura is still in business. The company is in Troy Alabama.

you may have to sand it down and refinish it like a real wood deck. as long as surface is roughed up it will take a paint easier. if you have and splits from using nails that will let water under your paint and cause peeling too. you may need something more than regular porch paint in that case. I suggest a product called Restore from Home Depot. Its normally used to extended the life of a standard wood deck or dock. It fills in cracks and splits in the wood and leaves an antislip finish. It can be mixed in an array of colors to match what you need.
Restore at Home Depot
