We just had a new mahogony deck built as part of a larger remodeling project. Rather that using lattice as a shirt under the deck, the builder built a shirt out of beadboard. It looks awesome-much nicer than lattice, but we are a little worried about the deck being properly vented underneath. Its pretty much sealed on all sides. Builder says its not a concern, but other builders I've talked to, and things I've read have said that a deck must be properly ventited underneath.
Also interested in people's views on if and how to treat the mahagony.
