We're doing a pretty thorough renovation on this property. What you see here is the deck portion of the rehab. 

Few things to note: 
1. We used galvanized fasteners (nails) because the wood is treated exterior - non-galvanized fasteners do not react well to the chemicals in the wood which causes premature rusting/running. 
2. We used Simpson Strong-Ties (brackets - galvanized) for several good reasons, including code. 
3. We screwed the ledger board onto the property's band (2x10)
4. The girder sits on knotched 6x6 posts and is further secured with more Simpson Strong-Ties joist brackets.






What exactly is that we do? We provide a little help for a little while for a lot of things. From home improvements & home repairs, to moving services, handyman help, exterior house painting and more.
