This is absolutely REDICULOUS! I live in PA and there are a-lot of Professional deck builders in my area who have been building decks for who knows how many years with no ledger failures or railing failures.
LEDGER FAILURES HAPPEN BECAUSE OF FLASHING ISSUES!!! READ ABOUT THEM
Now because Simpson Pays off everyone theyre fasteners are now code on every piece of a deck.
So the average homeowner is gonna have to pay 500.00 more for a 10x12 deck because we now have to cut open theyre ceiling, patch & repair drywall, re-paint, because simpson doesnt make enough money on lag bolts.
Also add these stupid things to railing posts that arent strong enough when theyre bolted inside a band board?!! B.S.
Theyre becoming just like insurance companies.
