I am planning on replacing the worn 2x6 boards on my deck. The deck
joists are 24" apart. Is there any advantage in using the 5/4 deck
boards over the 2x6's? Obviously if I use 5/4 board I will have to add
an additional joists.
Also I thought of maybe flipping the existing 2x6's to the good side. I
did one and it looked pretty good. But I don't know if this is only a
short term solution.
