    I predrilled and face screwed 1×4 ipe decking onto 2x pt joists. used 2 1/4 stainless trim head screws. it is very solid. however, surface gets very hot often due to western exposure, and then the boards creek when walked on. Almost like the expansion may be allowing the deck board to move slightly causing a creeking sound. Normal? Any possible remedy?

      Allen,
      It sounds like you boards may have shrunk some from the heat and that is why they are creaking. You could try to tighten the screws but I would be cautious depending on how wet and cold your winter is because then the boards will swell. As for the heat you can try to provide cover or allow the boards to silver and they should not get as hot once they lighten/silver.
      Thank you
