Ipe deck on Trex elevations (steel substructure)
We're going to be starting on our Ipe deck in MN here shortly. The contractor has suggested using a steel substructure (Trex brand) along with a Trex ceiling system underneath. Has anyone done anything like this? Everyone (suppliers/lumber company) is super excited because no one's done anything like this around here. Do I want to be this first? I would love to hear opinions/experience with the products. Thanks so much!
