New Deck Connection and Fastening Guide

F-DECKCODE17 – Deck Connection and Fastening Guide

The latest deck guide provides guidance for building safe, strong wood decks as well as instructions on how to recognize the warning signs of unsafe decks. In addition, it provides details for each critical deck connection (ledger connection, joist-to-beam connection, beam-to-post connection, etc.) and identifies the relevant building-code requirements (2012 and 2015 IRC/IBC) and connection options. As our most popular piece of literature, our deck guide can be a helpful resource for engineers, contractors, remodelers, homeowners and do-it-yourselfers.

F-DECKCODE17 expires 7/1/19. Replaces F-DECKCODE13.
