Deck Joist spacing

by JLawler   Last Updated May 15, 2019 15:21 PM - source

I just tore off the old decking from my cabin's deck. The joists are set 24" on center as opposed to the 16" on center that were in the specs. Should I take all the joists out and replace all of them, or add a new joist between each existing joist? The deck is about 12 years old and some of the joists have to be replaced due to rot.
