Wood Decking Material

My 900 sq foot cedar decking is rotting after 8 years in the sun and rain of Wilmington, NC. What product will give me the best service life in this environment. The structure under the decking is 24 in. on center pressure treated lumber and is in good shape. Should I use wood or a composite material? What would the best finish be for this area?

I like Trex however you would have to do some research i have never spanned 2 ft. with it before, it is not rigid like wood.
