With longevity in mind we covered the joists with "Protect a Deck" black plastic stripping to protect the tops of the treated pine joists. We also made a last minute decision to add a fascia on the outside of the joists. A decision I am pleased we made as it finishes the deck nicely and helped the layout of that section to be completed using whole decking boards.
