Metal grating as deck floor
Has anyone done this? Our deck will be on the north side of our house, over the only windows and door to our basement. In order to get some light to the basement, I was thinking of using metal grating. I have seen it used for landings on fire escapes, but never for a deck. Anyone have any idea where to get it or what it would cost? Also, what metal are they made out of and what maintenance would be involved?
