Yes. The synthetic teaks can be good. My preference is for the ones that are all one material, sealant stripes and boards both. This allows for refinishing with a belt sander to look like new when one goes to sell. The ones that mix sealant and synthetic boards such as a by the strip installation I am less a fan of for longevity.
I do not like the self adhesive ones, when something goes wrong you're in the glue, literally.
With ones bedded in adhesive if you spot a flaw after laying it you can solve the issue easily, it's amazing how often a bit of grit you didn't spot will be there and telegraph through.

Oh also, please stay away from the cork "teak". Horrid stuff. Never seen one that looked good >2 years.
