Building a new deck and the house has open web floor trusses. What methods are their to attach the ledgerboard to the trusses, some building codes want let you support a deck on open web floor trusses, not sure about my area. Their is a 2×6 frame wall under the 14″ floor trusses. Maybe do solid blocking above the top plates attach ledgerboard & deck to that. Also will be using 3/4 PT plywood for flooring and sealing the top. Anyone tried this before? What problems if any sitting PT lumber directly on concrete. Whats the deal with using aluminum flashing with PT lumber? Thanks, Roger
Engineered rafters are lighter, straighter, and often have more room for insulation than dimensional lumber.
