I am considering options to finish a newly felted roof terrace approx 7 sqm. I like the idea of (grey) composite decking but it is very very expensive especially when adding in its hidden fixings etc

Wondering what those here think about the idea of painting new decking? Wickes are doing 4 for 3 on normal decking and I can get even more money off that.

What paint would you suggest? I often use Joncryl primer undercoat and see just now on Johnstones website that it is suitable for exterior use. Maybe two coats of it to start off with?

Just considering costs and work involved at the moment. Achieving something similar to the attached picture would be good.
