@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.

comment Deck handrail bracket
@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.

comment Which outlet box should I use for an unfinished basement?
Thanks. This circuit I'm tapping into already has a GFCI receptacle on it. So I'm OK, right?
