@Doresoom: If it were metal like the old-school ones, I'd go for it. But not the orange plastic.

comment My deck dies in a funny pattern — does that mean this board is upside-down?
Could be. That board is under the sloping part of the roof line, not the flat part (where there are gutters). I would not expect a lot of rain to run off this part.

@Niall C.:No boards are sealed yet. We were told to wait a year to let the wood really dry out.

@Tester101: The inspector said everything else is fine. I think this is more of a case of a contractor not wanting to finish the job than shoddy work from the start. We've been going back and forth with these guys for months, and are ready to move on.
