Re: 2009 Deck Code Changes - Pay Attention!

This is great information on attaching these connetions to floor joists, what do you do when you are building your deck from your walk out concrete basement without having to make it a "free standing" deck? I would like to propose using 3/4" Hilti kwik bolts to fasten my ledger to the concrete foundation wall. The tension and shear values are well above the required 1500# required for the connection. Does anyone see a problem with using them?
Thanks,
Brian
