Safety and Durability are Key

Decks require a solid foundation. Without it the deck is going to heave and move around, which is not what you want. These frames are made with pressure treated lumber, but you have some choices for decking and railing material. There are three materials we can use – PVC, wood, and composite.

Changes To Building Codes

New Deck Made With PVC in Essex, VT

 

It’s important to note that building codes have changed. You need solid posts in the corners with no notches, and the deck has to be screwed into a plate inside the house. This helps ensure it will be safe, particularly if you like to entertain large number of people. Railing height is important as well. You need sturdy railings constructed of metal or wood.

The Importance of Flashing

Once the deck is attached to the house, the ledger board also needs to be flashed, keeping water from seeping inside your house and causing damage. This is one of the most important aspects of deck building.
