Exterior Deck Construction: Doing The "Dos" Avoiding The "Don'ts" [DEMO]

Tuesday, January 31 | 1:00 - 1:45 PM
LVCC - IBS Craft Techniques Zone - W1432

What It’s About

Today, there are almost too many product choices when it comes to building a deck. All were engineered for a specific purpose, but that often gets lost by the time it hits our hands in the field. This demo will show which mechanical connectors belong where and why as well as alternative options if you’re not able to locate those preferred. We’ll also cover lumber selections, spans and spacing to make sure that expensive and beautiful decking looks just as good 5-10 year down the road. This isn’t a good better best conversation—it’s a pass fail only scenario. Let us help you avoid the don’ts while making the do’s that much easier..
