Should I have a gap between stringers next to each other?

← All Topics
You are welcome to, for the flow of water, but do not make this gap greater than a quarter inch. Adding a gap between stringers could extend the life of your joists slightly, as it would prevent moisture from building up. However, installing either with or without a gap is fine.
