The only question I have about engineered wood products (laminated veneer
lumber, parallel strand lumber, etc.) is whether it performs well (1)
over a long period of time, and (2) in adverse moisture conditions.

I can't speak for life cycle of the product.  I do know that Microlam should
not be used in any condition exposed to moisture.  Paralam is available as
CCA treated, making it ideal for wood decks.
