Moisture protection for deck?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am designing a pretty large wood deck over a slope in Laguna Beach, CA. I 
 am concerned about moisture intrusion for the underside of the deck. I am 
planning to sheathe the bottom, but is there something I can apply over the 
 sheathing which would have a good chance of sealing the deck? My first 
thought was stucco, but there has to be something better/cheaper/easier. It 
 will not be seen by anyone not directly under the deck.

Thank you,
