I'm laying some decking in my new house and can not decide whether to lay the decking reeded side up or down? I speak to a few different people and I get different answers... so say the reeding is supposed to go underneath to help air out the frame (eg, stops the water from sitting between the joists and decking) whilst others say put the readed side up for grip.
I've looked around and different people seem to have it laid different ways. Is anyone an expert on this? What is the "professional" preferred method of laying it? Or is it just customer preference?
Also, I was going to use screws and pre-drill the decking before I lay it. Would any galvanized screws be good for this? Can anyone recommend a screw that has a â€œlow profileâ€ or that works well for decking?
Also, if anyone knows what Oil etc to use that would be great to hear from you.
