This class is a “from the ground to handrail” look at building a deck to meet the building codes. Every year somewhere a deck fails, and someone gets hurt or worse. Our job requires we take a detailed look at deck plans and conduct responsible onsite inspections. This class will try to help you meet that goal.

The student will be able to apply the various tables, manufacture specifications, hanger details, loading as it applies to inspecting decks.
The student will demonstrate learned knowledge on construction errors a the workingdeck mockup.
