The most important thing you must be aware of when building decks is the type of wood you use. The number one cause of decks that fail is moisture. The most common cause for the failure of your deck is due to moisture. The rotting process can affect the structural integrity of your deck. This is why choosing the right sort of wood is essential. It is recommended to use copper-infused wood. Copper-infused wood resists the effects of water and keeps it from rotting. This will significantly increase the lifespan that your deck will last.
Use an end sealer for posts. The wood can either be painted or dip-dipped using the sealer. It can also be used to increase the lifespan of the deck by sealing the ends grain. Lastly, it is a good practice to use Joist tape to protect vulnerable spots from the rain. Joists, ledger boards as well as other places are covered. You can peel the tape and then stick it on the uppermost part of the board.
