Hi everybody. We are covering an old concrete landing and concrete stairs with decking. We would like to have an overhang on one side of the landing. The cantilever distance would be 2′. The current plan is to attach a ledger board to the concrete in that section, and then joist to that with joist hangers. I’ve looked at the codes and the cantilever discussion does not cover this application, since really the entire “span” of the joists (2′) would be from the ledger board. Any help?
Properly install PVC trim products during cold weather to prevent expansion, contraction, and bowing issues. Warm up the trim before installation for better results.
