Customer reviewsWOW This thing WORKS
I admit I was a bit skeptical, considering all the other deck protectors out there are in the hundreds of dollars range, but this product had good reviews so I thought I would try it. I have a metal fire pit on my composite deck, and was worried that the radiant heat from the bottom of the firepit might either melt, warp, or discolor the deck since the slats are plastic. Prior to purchasing this item, I kept putting my hand on the deck when I had a fire going - to see how hot it was, and I would occasionally move the firepit around so that it wouldn't get one certain spot too hot. I was a little paranoid every time we had a fire going, so I ultimately decided to give this a try, and I am SO GLAD I did Now, no matter how long the fire is going for, or how hot it gets, the deck protector underneath is still COOL TO THE TOUCH I don't know how it manages to stay cool, but it does. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't experience it firsthand, but this thing is awesom . Totally worth the money to have the peace of mind for protecting my nice deck. I thought it was going to be a rigid piece of material, but it is actually flexible and arrived rolled up in a poster tube. I unrolled it and let it lay flat for a while and it now has no curls or indication that it was rolled up for days during the shipping process. I put it under the firepit before I start the fire, and I remove it when the fire is done. I wouldn't want to leave it outside all the time because it is a fabric-type material. I just keep it indoors when not in use under the sofa , near my patio door :- . Anyway, bottom line here is that you should get this because IT WORKS REALLY WELL A great value indeed I will try and post a picture next time I have a fire burning, along with the temperatures of the fire vs the heat pad. You will be amazed.
