1.
Determine substrate was installed to accommodate all loads imposed upon it by the Resysta Fiber Reinforced Decking and components supplied by other parties.
B.
Do not proceed with installation until unacceptable conditions have been corrected.
C.
If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
D.
If the decking is being installed in a location where the air gap below the decking is equal to or less than 6 inches (152 mm) from the underside of the decking substructure to the ground / solid structure the joist spacing shall be reduced to 12 inches (305 mm) center-to-center. Comply with manufacturer's installation guidelines.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Coordinate placement of bearing items.
B.
Apply one coat of bituminous paint to concealed surfaces that will be in contact with cementitious or dissimilar materials.

Install sleepers, decking, trim and accessories per manufacturer's recommendations.
B.
Apply finish stain to individual decking planks and trim prior to installation before or after installation.
C.
Install decking perpendicular to framing members, with ends staggered over minimum 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) minimum firm bearing.
D.
Always consider the expansion/contraction of Resysta material and plan gaps at board abutment joints, termination points, and trim locations accordingly. Comply with manufacturer's installation guidelines.
