IPE decking fastener question
Have any of you IPE deck experts used the Camo Hidden Fastener system to install IPE or other hardwood decking material? I am considering it for my new decking. I wonder if it makes any difference if I were to use 1x6 or 5/4 x6 deck boards? With the 5/4 material you would get more of the deck board toe nailed to the joist which might help it to hold better when the boards expand and contracts during the seasonal changes.
Would toenailing the boards with this system minimize potential cupping?
One potential downside to this system is the automatic board spacing of 3/16" which seems a bit wide but maybe isn't so bad with wider boards.
I live about 1/4 mile from salt water so expect I should use SS screws with this system.
Any advice would be appreciated.
In the Camo Fastener website, the video section shows installation with hardwood decking.
