As licensed General Contractors that specialize in decks, Archadeck has to keep up on all of the local building codes and changes that effect them. The county building codes are adopted to insure safety of the homeowner. Here are a few of the more important codes to comply with:
Make sure if you are attaching a ledger board to the house wall that you thru-bolt from the inside of the crawl space out between EVERY joist.
Make sure if the deck is above 6′ high, use 6×6 columns and lateral bracing
If you are attaching a ledger board to a sided house, make sure you properly flash with metal flashing!
