Putting on decking now. 2×6 T&G #1 SYP pressure treated. Screwed through the tongue like hardwood flooring. Have not started to trim it to length yet and it overhangs a good 2 1/2 feet. Would like to leave it a bit long and gain a few extra square feet . Is there a rule for maximum overhang? Inches, feet, percentage? There’s 10 feet minimum screwed to the joists. No shorts at the edge. I’m 200 pounds and can stand on the edge and bounce and it feels solid. Can I leave it 12 or 16 inches long? No railings on that side. Its close to the ground.
Properly install PVC trim products during cold weather to prevent expansion, contraction, and bowing issues. Warm up the trim before installation for better results.
