Spa Patio - If the floor above is Tigerwood decking and the framing is closed under neath, how do you keep the framing dry if slats let water through??

Underneath the Tigerwood decking, we put a EPDM rubber membrane. The water then sheds to a gutter that we have hidden behind the fascia detail. The water exits onto to the lawn through the gutter. Thanks for your question.

Apologies....I don't see an answer to the question about paver cost - ....compared to other options (i.e. concrete gravel, other?) I'm hoping somewhere on houzz there is a discussion about exterior space finishes. The pros/cons of pavers, concrete, stained concrete, gravel, etc. If you can provide any enlightenment.....I would value your input. Thank you!

Hi rbcola... There is not a question on this photo relating to paver cost. Are you sure you're talking about the correct photo?

Sorry JKS....I was looking at the whole project and varied pictures. I was asking for comments on what needs to be considered when choosing one material or another.....or mixing pavers, concrete, asphalt....etc. thanks for the quick attempt to respond.
