cedar decking damaged by moisture

Posted by Bill on July 11th, 2000 01:02 AM

I have an 18 year old deck with a wolmanized sub-
structure and all cedar decking and railings. Some of
the cedar deck boards are rotting on the ends and edges
from excessive moisture. The sub-structure has no
damage. I am replacing the boards (2x6) which either
just look bad or are unsafe. I have removed a large
tree which kept the deck in shade most of the time to
help dry it out. I am left with a large number of
boards with minor moisture damage. Is there a product
that will kill the fungus or whatever it is that causes
the rotting? I have heard of a borate (boric acid?)
treatment but I would like to hear from anyone who has
actual experience with this or any other solution.
