low profile deck using 2x4 joists by: editor - rich bergman 2x4 joists would be sufficient depending on close they are spaced (no further than 12" on center, maybe even a bit closer) and how long the 2x4s will span from one support beam to the next. 2x4s can not span a very long distance without starting to bend.
