Re: Moisture protection for deck?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Around here that wouldn't fly but YMMV. I'd be using PT joists (include C_I)& PT 3/4" ply. You can expect that the deck will leak. The only question is--now? or later? Fixing it will be very expensive.

Leave it open, and coat it. This sounds at least as good (if not better)
than closing off the space.
