I nstalling Deck Boards OVERVIEW Introduction Now that the deck frame and joists are in place, you can install the decking, or floor, of your deck. You have a variety of materials to choose from - pressure-treated wood, redwood, cedar or even artificial wood. Your choice will be based on your preference for aesthetics versus ease of maintenance. Time to complete this project depends on the size of the deck and the level of help available, the times listed here are for two people on a 10’x 30’ deck with the house defining two sides of the deck. • Beginner - 2 to 3 days • Intermediate - 1 to 2 days • Advanced - about 1 day Install decking boards with the bark side up. Boards can "cup" away from the bark side. This will enable the water to run off the boards. Decking boards should be about 1/8" apart to allow for the boards to swell and shrink. This also allows for water drainage through the deck.
