I'm looking to build a deck. Are there any lumber stores in STX and do they sell composite decking?

Thanks

Could not find 2x6 composite on STX. Had to use lumber and ship in SS deck screws.

Home Depot has SS screws.
You can buy by the bucket load.

No, you cannot buy the ones that are best for the job. I don't settle for half ass stuff.

MSI sells very good quality SS screws for decking - my experience.

None of these stores sells composite decking. You'll have to order than from Florida. Never buy your deck lumber from Home Depot. Their lumber is the worst. Go to St. Croix Trading for your lumber.

A store that is not on STX. Some contributors have forgotten the OP's question already.

Your safest and best bet is to order composite decking from Florida (Lowes or Home Depot) and have it shipped via VI Cargo to St Croix. Both stores are in fairly close proximity to VI Cargo in Medley, Florida.

Perhaps Exit meant MSC as in mscdirect.com.
