    Default Source for gratings to replace deck boards?

    I have a deck across the back of my home, and rain splashes back onto the siding, causing mould and rot.
    Our house inspector recommended replacing 2 rows of boards with gratings to diminish the splashback.
    I can't find a current source for suitable gratings. Boards are 5/4" x 6".

    Anyone know a source?

    Thanks

    Maybe driveway trench drain covers? "NDS Spee-D channel" is one example.

    The big box stores only carry short lengths but I'm pretty they can be had in 10-foot sections.

    I think you'd still get some splashing off the grate but at least there would be no big splashes from rain hitting standing water.
