When nailing or using screws at the extreme end of a board, you may wish to pre-drill to reduce the possibility of splitting.  Do not over nail or set nails so deep as to create a hoe which could hold water or dirt.

Staining and Finishing:
A penetrating clear or semi-transparent stain which contians ultra violet blockers provides the greatest level of protection from the elements. Paints and solid stains are not recommended.  Light colors are recommended over dark shades because they do not absorb heat as readily.  Although each manufacturer of stain provides careful guidance for their particular products, some basic rules generally hold true:

  1. After installation, allow decking to go untreated for 30 days, allowing pores to open.
  2. Test your selection of stain on a sample area.
  3. Clean deck thoroughly prior to staining.
  4. Apply when surface of deck is between 40 and 90 degrees.
