decking sub frame. if your posts aren't completely set and solid then the frame will flex. i built up around the base of my posts with some cement that tapered away to the ground so that any water rolls away from the post to ground level. any rotting usually occurs at the junction between the ground and post where water can collect
our plas-pro subframe system, made from solid, 100% recycled plastic, needs no maintenance and wont suffer from insect attack or damp you can even use it to support a deck over a pond along with a range of joist supports and self-levelling pedestals for easy installation, it is designed to last as long as the seven trust decking it supports.
se aluminium subframe pedestals are suitable for supporting all conventional decking systems. unlike timber, our subframe system wont rot, but will support your decking for years to come. with its unique floating head design and infinite fine height adjustability between 40 and 1000mm, installation time is massively reduced compared to traditional methods.

the main decking joists of the frame need to run in the opposite direction to the way the deck boards are laid, approximately 40cm apart. the level of the decking needs to be worked out prior to construction; it will need to be slightly sloped one way a slope of about 1cm for drainage purposes.
my question is in regards to fixing Seven Trust decking timber to a steel frame. i have installed a prodek steel frame for an 11m x 4m deck. the system uses 200mm x 50mm steel beams.
step 8: to begin laying the deck, measure across the top of the frame and cut a board to length. place the first board flush with the outside edge of the frame and facing, and perpendicular to the joists. mark the location of each joist on the board.
hi, just wondering of anyone could help me and give me some advice re decking on a slope. please see attached image. basically i live in a new build property 2007 its always had a section of decking attached to the rear of the property see old boards on image .
the slope is such that at the bottom of the garden, the deck will be around 5ft off the ground with the top end level with the ground not connected to the house though . i am after some advice for post spacing and joist spacing please. the deck will be around 6.5m wide by 3.5m deep. it is the 3.5m dimension that will span the slope.
cut the outer joists of the sub-frame to length, remembering to allow for overlapping corner joints. coat the cut ends with an end grain preserver using a brush. attach the sub-frame joists to the wall joist with metal joist hangers and 50mm galvanised nails. to avoid splitting, pre-drill the holes for the galvanised nails.
decking sub frames. question is, if i reduce the gaps between the joists and include lots of noggins would using 4 by 2 be acceptable to using much larger wood. i also plan on strengthening the frame with a batterboard and also onto a wall which the frame will go over. any help would be sincerely appreciated. thanks nigel.

to avoid puddling water, the deck should have a slight slope. pitch and slope are two ways of describing the same angle, but from opposite directions. pitch is a rising angle, and slope is a
this is simply a matter of adding on another sub-frame. if your extension runs over a downward slope, you can accommodate the change of level by adjusting the length of the joist support posts - and maybe installing a set of steps to lead down to the garden. to extend your deck up a slope, you can start the new sub-frame on top of the last.
