Keep these tips in mind when planning for a new deck.

The level of the deck floor is determined by the joists, but since boards aren't always perfectly straight, you could still end up with a wavy floor. If a board has a curve or cup to it, the raised side or outer curve is known as the crown. When installing the joists, make sure the crown side faces up. This way the board will tend to flatten out, rather than sag, over time.
