Are bugs under the deck taking up residence ever a problem?

Re: Deck On Grade


All of your stuff always looks so good, really like the low large one.

Do the decks have to be ventilated at 1 square foot per 150 square foot of deck space?

They used too. Not anymore. I've talked extensively about this subject with the higher ups from Trex. The executive vice president of Trex flat told me they've tested the Transcends in every condition there is and cross ventilation isn't necessary, like it once was with Accents.

Re: Deck On Grade


In fact Rio. This deck was a Trex warranty replacement. Trex payed for the replacement. The old stuff flaked. I was able to pull some strings and get them Transcends as a replacement.

If I may ask, is this an exception just for Trex, or is there an exception in the building code for composite lumber and ventilation?
