I installed a solarium on my deck a few yrs ago. Now I have rotten studs and decking. what seems to be happening is water is wicking from the deck to the walls. What did I do wrong? I thought the overhang would be enough to keep things dry! I have a 18" overhang. Must I use treated lumber, flashing,cement, or just what should I do now. I know I have to cut out all bad lumber, I just don't want to do this again. Thanks anyone for some
help on this. Dave

Hi Dave, I think the lack of responses to this and your other post (so far) are because it's difficult to advise what to do without knowing how the current structure is built. I would certainly think you want treated wood where it connects to the decking. I'm sure others will have some good suggestions and advice if you will give more detailed description. What is the size, shape & how is it attached to the deck? Is it completely free-standing? What are the walls made of? etc.
