Re: Moisture protection for deck?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I couldn't open your file. I assume the deck surface will be waterproofed. I hope it won't be tiled as well. I agree with Andrew. You should probably expect the joists will get wet at some point & trying to seal them will be ineffective.
Enclosing them will both hide & accelerate decay.
Why not accept that & frame with PT?

Can I just paint the framing with something?

Is the space under the deck going to be habitable or a patio or something
used by the owners? Why is the bottom being sheathed?
