Ipe Deck Hidden Fasteners

dbartSeptember 17, 2012

I am going to be building an Ipe deck. I know not everyone is a fan of hidden fasteners, but I do have a question about them. Is there any advantage to using a clip that rests under the decking and above the joist? I see there are several on the market that are like this. Is there an advantage to not having the Ipe touch the PT joist? Would a cause any problems?

Thanks!
