I find the reeded side down airs the joist contact idea rather dubious. I think it would act as a wick into the joint. Maybe the reeding helps dry the whole downward face of the board and help stop cupping. In a commercial situation you have to do something to stop slipping in trafficked areas. Reeds up does it as far as Building Code is concerned else you need some other solution.

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks for the discussion! I've appreciated the views that were shared.. and had no idea that the side of the decking that is placed upwards could be so controversial. 

 

I took the much overdue step today of water blasting half of it. I'm amazed at how good the colour of the timber was once years of filth were taken away and don't think I need to stain it for cosmetic reasons. But I might take the advice of one of the posts on here and treat it with a clear stain in order to prolong it. This should hopefully reduce the risk of it looking blotchy. There is still some risk that it will be tacky but but choosing a good product and applying it as per the instructinos i'm hoping this can be avoided. 

 

Cheers!

It's the oil in an oil based stain that preserves a deck.  Water-based stain - may as well use harsh language.
