Slightly concerned about the following;
We had a quote for decking 50 sqm, it is ground level. We have been told that the treated posts will be driven directly into the earth with lots of them to make it a strong frame. (yep hammered into the earth).
The frame and joists will be supported off these using nails not coach bolts. 4x2 joists.
There will be many posts driven into the earth by force to support the deck frame.
The decking boards themselves will be fixed with a shanked nail gun instead of screws.
We were told the joists will not need joist hangers as nails are a better solid fix.
Q - Deck is being used.
Fence with concrete posts and gravel boards. Were told a wood post to secure the fence to a wall and concrete posts in between, surely this will look odd and a concrete post can be fixed to a wall.
Advice please before we waste out money, my concern is the deck posts will move and rott over time.
