Old PT deck being replaced
WE are just in the planning phase, and starting to bounce some ideas around with my carpenter.
Have a multi level deck; lower is not a problem. But the upper has some issues.
Starting to think about IPE and maybe some azek or moisture shield as some decking options....
The upper deck is on piers; 7 feet or so; and is about 13x24 or so.
For the structure, we are considering going with 2x6, PT, 12OC. We are going to have a beam splitting the deck widthwise, so the span of the joists are only 6.5' or so....
Any issues with 2x6 PT framing, 12OC, in conjunction with IPE or some of the manmades PVC/composites?
Thanks a bunch.
