    There are many different ways to create a decking substructure on a limited elevation roof or balcony terrace.

    • Hardwood
    • softwood
    • HDPE
    • Steel frame

    How do you support the substructure, we all know it isn’t a good idea to lay this directly onto a flat substrate – so what do you do?

    • Rubber joist shoes
    • Pedestals
    • HDPE supports
    • Joist pads (like large polo mints about 6mm x 125mm)

    The reason I ask is that many Architects, designers and clients all have “Their” way of doing things, not always correctly.
