Prefab fiberglass porch

I am thinking about replacing my sunken porch concrete slab by a prefabricated fiberglass porch. It is small 48"X 48" platform with two steps and railing. I want this porch to be secure to the concrete foundation. In your experience are this fiberglass lumber maintenance free can they crack and the colour fade? What should I look for in term of workmanship when this porch arrives on site. Your answer will be appreciated.

P.A.T. ,

I personally have no experience with a pre-fab fiberglass porches.

I would suggest that you do a couple of things before even buying this as your questions should have been addressed prior to buying or even considering the thought.

Ask for references and list of past projects.
See the jobs - review the product and how it was installed.
Talk to the customers - find out what they like and don't like about it.
Ask their opinion on product and how the company performed in the installation

Ok, more than a couple of things, but you understand what I mean.

Good Luck!
