Building New Deck- a question or two
I am finishing up my plans for a couple of decks. One is approx. 750sf and the other is approx. 100sf. We will be going with Ipe based on the recommendations of the people that frequent here. Almost went with Timberteck but .... afraid of mold and plasticy look. Anyway, any advise on whether or not a Metal Connector Nailer such as the Bostitch MCN250 is worth it. Time is precious for me so a couple hundred bucks is not out of the question if its a real time saver. Also, are the nails ok for the pressure treated wood? I did a quick search but could not get the specs on them.
2nd question is do you recommend installing adhesive on the PT, under the Ipe. I will be face screwing: 12" joist spacing, wood installed on angle.
thanks in advance - you have all been very helpful.
