Avoid deck Rot with Flashing Tape - Pressure-treated lumber that stays wet will eventually rot. Flashing tape keeps water from getting trapped between doubled-up joists. If you're resurfacing an existing deck frame, tape over any joists that have a lot of holes from the previous nails or screws. Buy black tape if you can find it; shiny silver and white tapes may be noticeable between the gaps in the decking. The tape shown will be covered by the perimeter deck board. #deckframing.

All three choices—5/4 x 6-in. radius-edged cedar, pressure-treated and composite decking—share similarities. They're all rot resistant to varying degrees, require 16-in. joist spacing for proper support, bleach out to a silvery gray, and can all be cut and installed using conventional tools and fasteners. But alas, there's no perfect deck material.
I took a couple days off my full-time job and worked at getting most of the deck boards down. As I was securing the planks down, I ran into a few problems. For example, I miscalculated how much lumber I actually had in-stock and was short by a 120 lineal feet. Lucky for me, I had a bunch of 5/4" x 6" pressure treated boards left over from a scavenged mission and got them laid down and secure.
The actual measurements are the final size. If your project calls for precise measurements, be sure to check your lumber before purchasing. Common Lumber Dimensions. Nominal vs. actual lumber dimensions: Why a 2" × 4" is not always a 2" × 4". Lumber sizes are usually given in "nominal" measurements.
