Default Might Work

That might work except squirrels are so numerous around here and so stupid, I'd probably get 50 of them taking one or two knaws before they figured out it didn't taste good. Result: the same.

I would want the answer to that before I spend big $$ on Trex. Maybe get a scrap from somewhere & put it where the squirrels can taste it.

This is a small set of stairs --- five risers --- and about half the material is already on hand, leftover from the deck project. I'll be making these stairs, just around the corner from the deck, match with Trex and cable railing. Currently everything is wood, with painted wood railing/balasters, epee risers and treads and PVC trim. For a variety of reasons, all this needs to be replaced, and I am over PVC trim for this application. Squirrels just helped me along. The Trex fascia on the deck has been available for squirrel chewing for about 10 months now, and they have passed it by...

I just put a couple of photos of the deck in the "Projects" section.
