Decking over concrete

Hi All

I've been asked to deck over an exiting garage base with smooth decking boards. It's already 6inches above the surrounding area so I was thinking of using 2x2 joists. I don't want to sit it directly onto the concrete (I would like some air to circulate around them) so what would you use to fix them. Would you also need to include a slope?

Your advice would be greatly appreciated

  • maybe the plastic tile lats will work on the concreate area witout lifting it too high 

    a small fall away from any building  so as not cause damp in them

    use somthing like the feet in the link, many years back i did something similar on an old workshop base.

     

    just ensure the base was done properly and has a good depth of top layer concreate along with a good subbase (will need to dig a hole down on one side just to check the depths)

    if all ok then the plastic raisers will never rot so can sit in water no probley and can also be fixed to the concreate (raw plugs and screws etc) they also allow intricate adjustmets to be made allowing you to get your levels spot on.
