(4) 1996 Replacement deck under construction
Wood is isolated from ground contact, and framing lumber is pressure treated.
(5) Ten year old deck and detail, 2006
While obviously a bit begrimed the deck has remained sound.
(6) 2006 Refinish, and detail
The deck was cleaned by high pressure washing, then two saturation coats of preservative stain were applied.  This should be repeated on perhaps five year maintenance cycles for maximum durability.
