I noticed that for wood decks, there are surface mount deck brackets for the 4 x 4 posts. I just resurfaced my wood deck with composite. I have been unable to find those brackets for composite deck material. Are there surface deck mount posts for composite?

  • Why do they need to be different? Do your new posts have different dimensions?

  • No, they are 4x4. I have never worked with composite material before. It seems to be more pliable than wood. I was scared that it wouldn't be as rigid.

These brackets will also work for composite material. The composite material might be harder on a cheap drill bit, but so long as you can drill a hole through the deck, you can mount a bracket to it.
