Fastening system was Headcote 2 1/4" brown trim head screws.
The deck that we replaced was 2x6 redwood over 3/4" redwood sleepers. The sleepers and some of the deck were rotted out. At least one water leak from nails penetrating the roof.
We replaced the deck with 4/4 ipe, over 2x4 PT D.F. sleepers. We torched on another layer to the roof, on a day that was around 105 degrees. I cut the sleepers and layed them on the roof and the next day, they couldn't be moved.
Great looking deck, clean and tight!
I like the look of the stain/sealer. I tell my clients if you want your deck to have a consistent look go with one of the upline composite products otherwise you will have color and grain variations.
