The point I was trying to make, but didn't, was that the new ACQ wood is twice as corrosive as the old CCA wood.
Did you change over the joist hangers to the Zmax Simpson hardware or did you use the older hardware rated for the CCA wood?

OK I understand. I used the Zmax joist hangers. I guess I lucked out in selecting the proper ones.

Decking update.

Well after a great deal of thought and research we settled on Pedra Hardwood decking. It took 2 weeks for the order to come. I also ordered UC Coatings to seal the end cuts to prevent checking. That took almost 3 weeks to arrive.

So Saturday we stained all 4 sides of the deck boards with Messmers UV Plus for Hardwood decking. Sunday we got started on the layout and installing some of the boards.

I snuck off work early today and got a whole bunch done.

Here are some new photos.

That looks nice, great work

Somewhere far in the future when I re-deck I'll get something besides PT
