      A:  Yes, I have used them for that purpose

      by|Nov 7, 2019

      A:  Absolutely. When I built my deck last year I used these for that purpose. You need to be sure you apply the same protective coatings to them that you apply to the rest of the wood deck. https://photos.app.goo.gl/m65WZVLgWLGN46X47 DrDan
