Basic deck parts include the ledger and band around the perimeter, floor joists across the middle, and surface boards for flooring. Frame spacing for trex decking refers to the measurement of space that is required between floor joists.
Our unique Northwest weather presents a challenge for homeowners, particularly when it comes to outdoor structures such as decks. Choosing the right decking material for your climate makes a big difference in determining the lifespan and attractiveness of your deck, which is why many homeowners are turning to composite decking for a solution.
What Is Frame Spacing for WPC Decking?
WPC Decking and other composite decking brands are considerably heavier and more flexible than wooden surface boards. Whether you are building a new composite deck or replacing old wooden surface boards on an existing deck, you will need to compensate for the additional weight and flexibility when designing your plans for the frame.

Reinforcing the Deck
If your deck is new enough, you can reinforce a pressure-treated pine frame by adding extra joists. Most decks are built with the joists spaced by about 16 to 24 inches apart. Measure the original joists and use this measurement to cut new ones to the appropriate length. Install the new joists so that there are only 8 to 12 inches between each joist. This will provide enough extra support to handle the composite decking.
