I want to make a wooden deck over interlocking pavers installed for more than 15 years. Do you know the galvanized steel structures "Solsteel" and what do you think about the recommended wood (expansion, service life, etc.)?

The system Solsteel is composed of a galvanized steel structure. Logically, this type of support, subject to a sufficient galvanizing quality, should be very durable, compared to wooden joists. The fact remains that the steel expands under the effect of heat, but the system and assemblies are designed to take up these dimensional variations. Remains the extra cost compared to a fixing solution on joists on interlocking pavers.
