Ipe Decking 1x6 vs Tongue & Groove Covered Porch
We are going to use ipe decking for a covered porch we are doing and we would like to do a 1x4 tongue and groove construction. Otherwise we'd do the standard 1x6 decking with hidden fasteners.
Any thoughts on to why we shouldn't do the tongue and groove??? That's what we'd prefer but just wondering if they wear differently- being there's no spaces, etc. The porch won't be enclosed just covered... South East exposure
