    Hi All
    I am looking to cover an existing external balcony (currently no slope) with hollow composite decking boards. I want it to be slightly sloped to allow rainwater runoff. My question is can you get shallow angled joists (that have a triangular side profile) and which the decking boards screw onto so the floor will be slightly sloped? If not what is the best solution?
    Is there a system that you can buy that includes both compatible joists and boards ?

    Many thanks
