where is your accent from? also it sounds slightly different from the other videos.
Very nice. Thank you for taking the time in making this series as I'll be rebuilding my deck next year. I appreciate on the tips and problems (along with your solution) that you've encountered along the way. As for the weird plank sizes at the edge / bridge (forgot what segment), another workaround is to size the deck so you don't have to be forced into that situation since you know the width of the boards and spacing between planks. In other words, the back and front decks would be a little shorter and the bridge could be wider, or thinner.
I'll have to remind everyone to double check with the bylaws in your area. There's no way I can build a deck that large with respect to the property size; only 45% of the total property size can be used for whatever installation you want; house+shed+deck+garage (if separate from house). Thus, there must be Green spaces. LOL
Great points on diagonal joist spacing and also the potential issues with joist tape. Question: I already spaced my joists 12 inches OC and need to do diagonal deck planks. If using the cortex screws instead of the weak clips, given the longer stronger stainless steel screws, is it your experience that the pvc azec will be strong enough to avoid all the squeaks and flex without needing to add all the extra perpendicular joist blocking? If so, the cortex screws (and keeping the joists 12" OC without extra blocking) would be easier than adding tons of extra blocking. Because i live in Houston, where high humidity and rain, combined with extra wood blocks, means extra rot.
Do you think deck flashing tape would have helped avoid the problem?
6:27 remove plug like a pro
Would 14" OC avoid creaking?
Yes 12" o.c. is the way to go if using concealoc. Way to much deflection. Should br 1.5" thick
Would you use Azek again? What color did you get? I'm debating Azek vs. Brazilian Cumaru wood
I have a question. I am replacing existing wooden decking with Azek Harvest PVC boards. My joists are 12" OC and the deck boards are diagonally installed. I want to avoid squeaks so I am considering doing it all in Cortex even though it might take longer. The deck is 14' x 21'. My question is should I just get all square edge boards since I plan to do it all in Cortex? Or should I get some grooved edged boards for using clips and Cortex? Also, I have looked at the edge screw method that would eliminate the top holes and plugs, should I add plugs to the edge screws if I use those?
