    Hi all
    My missus is putting pressure on to get our house sorted out :(

    Next thing probably to do is a strip of decking at the back of the house - will help stopping me carrying muck on boots through the kitchen

    Anyway the strip is only about 1250mm wide by 6m in length - then we have steps up onto our lawn
    Anyway my original idea was to have plastic wood type stuff for the decking frame to stop things rotting however what I have found online so far is prohibitively expensive so decided that we may need a wood frame after all

    Im still planning on using the solid trex decking though

    The question really is what the best way these days of supporting the frame - I have seen these adjustable sort of risers in B&Q - here they are

    Do people use this type of thing or is it still the best way to put a frame onto a patio type slab??

    Any tips welcome

    I have also thought as I have some bitumen paint here of painting the frame in that to stop it rotting but again not sure if a good idea or not

    Thanks all
