Straight down is fine but a moisture barrier would be better vinyl would be best , be sure to use the proper nails that go into the pressure treated pine. A good galvanized will do or a coated screw.

I say vinyl is best because here in the states they changed the pressure treated pine. Some of it is for above ground use and some for direct dirt contact. Both on the other hand do have some corrosive properties when it comes in contact with some metals.

Sorry to see you did the dreaded Re-do. But if it sets your mind free from worry then it was for the best.

thanks for the heads up, I hate ripping stuff up but I wont get any sleep if I left it as it was. Sometimes it is easier to tell yourself you stuffed it and to start again, I guess that is how you learn, trial and ERROR! and thanks to all who posted so nicely saying change it without actually saying it. Standby for 2nd instalment.

Thumbs up A suggestion...

Lift each section up and put piece of pressure treated wood in underneath....The counter height will be 1.5 inches higher, thats all. If you nailed it down, use a sawsall and cut the nails. When you are done, use a ramset to nail it down again. Big mistake, not a big correction.

It is common for outdoor kitchen builders to place Trex, a wood and plastic composite, made primarily from equal parts reclaimed hardwood sawdust and reclaimed/recycled polyethylene plastic between their framework and concrete slab.

don't use a metal flashing under the treated.. it will rot aluminum in a heartbeat. the vinyl should work, or even a scrap piece of roofing felt. Faith is right... be very choosy in what you use for fasteners, treated lumber can be very corrosive
