New Deck Extensions

PostBy: Devil505 On: Sat May 17, 2008 8:36 am

Just finished extensions to my back upper & lower decks. Added an 8'x15' extension to upper deck & extended the lower to meet the upper deck. (my son-in-law would have replaced all the 5/4 decking but, being cheap, I just added to it. A good pressure washing will get them to match! :lol: )
I think it was just an excuse to use my new Porter Cable pneumatic framing nailer & some of the ring shank galvy nails I spent $90.00 on for a "lifetime supply" huge box....since that was the only size I could find!

Nice addition! Pressure wash or not, In 11 years they'll match. A hammer with a trigger, best tool ever invented.

Beautiful job.

If they don't match after you pressure wash them you can always stain them. Of course that's more work and I do love avoiding it at all costs. :D

I'm going to take a guess by my mental image of all you guys is that deck won't support everyone. :P

Looks great. Hate to be the one to raise a potentially negative issue but you'd better check the box of nails that you used to see if they are rated for use with the new pressure treated lumber. Since they removed the copper chromated arsenic from pressure treated lumber, the new stuff they use corrodes metal like crazy. There are new joist hangers and nails that have to be used with the new stuff. Hope they are the new ones.

Actually Richard [Devil 5052] I think you did a pretty nice job of 'building pretty'.. the deck looks great.. And if you built it really strong, then you can have a big party and not fear any structural problems..

Add that to the list. Lead, asbestos and now copper chromated arsenic. Wait until they find out dirt isn't healthy either.

The question is: did the pressure treated lumber leach the chemicals into the feet of the people walking on it?? I thought the surface was safe, only if you breathed the sawdust or breathed the smoke from a fire with PT wood in it.
