I am currently rebuilding my deck, it is a L shaped design 5mx5m which was tiled and 8mx2m whcih runs dow the rest of teh house.
The rebuild will be completly decked, but I have noticed that there is a 60mm slope away from the house over a distance of 5m. I think this works out to be .74 degrees and is barley noticable by just looking at the bearers. The finished deck will be partly covered 2 meters from the house,.
What is a acceptable slope, if any. The bearers are attached to the house barer at one end and sit on Steel posts at the other. If I am to try and reduce the slope, what am I best to use as shims between the posts and bearers.
And to give a little back, please remember not to leave old rusted nails sticking out disgared decking. I leant the hard way yesterday. lucky it was me and not my buddy.
I don't know what was more painful, the nail in the foot or the visit to the medical centre...
