I have a small entry area deck outside my front door, roughly 70 sqft. The deck is currently made of 2x4's and a few 2x6's screwed into ~16" on center floor joists.
I replaced the front door and siding. I now want to replace the deck surface. I am thinking of replacing the current 2x4 and 2x6 boards with 1x4 hardwood deck boards.
I can unscrew the current 2x4 floor boards, but then how do I makeup for the 3/4" difference (2x vs 1x) in floor board thickness?
I want the new deck to work with the current door threshold height. Will I need to replace the current floor joists?
