Deck on Grade

I've been getting a lot of decks on grade lately there nice because I don't have to deal with the city. Here's one I'm finishing up. Had to return some boards because they were damaged maybe have another hour left. This is a Fiberon Horizons IPE deck with Trex Deck lights.

here is where i see the steel frame should be of good use as you can get more span out of it and less holes

where are your footings ?
Are there any cross ventilation under deck requirements asked for by Fiberon ?

It's drained concrete underneath. It only requires 5 1/2" which I have. Been doing it that way for 13 years never had an issue.
Looks great!
Is the rim skirting composite as well?

Is there anything special planned for the raised area? Hot tub?

That's going to be his grill area it has a gas line run to it. This guy drew up the design himself I added the "upper deck over lapping the lower deck" I thought it would give it a little character.

Definitely looks better with the overlap than if it had simply stepped up at the edge of the lower section. :thumbsup:

I will have to remember that one.

From Fiberon. "To prevent extensive water absorption an unobstructed air flow is REQURIED below deck. For decks with limited ventilation add flow-through vents at various locations around the rim joist. "

But if Ya don't want to Ya don't have to. Like you say you've been building out of regulation/ installation requirements for 13 years.
