Deck Ledger - Attached at Side

Proper attachment of the deck ledger to the house is critical for ensuring that an “attached” deck is safely and securely supported at this location.  Here we provide details for attaching a 2” nominal lumber deck ledger to the side of residential floor ladder constructed with metal plate connected wood (MPCW) floor trusses.

Details for attachment of deck ledgers to the end of floor trusses can be found here.
