Adding a deck


I am taking off my 4 x 6 deck to pour a patio (bigger than the deck). any way i want to reattach the deck once the underside is leveled and poured.

Can the 2 out side legs just sit on the cement patio? I dont want to have them stick through the cement patio.

any help is welcome thanks.

Adding a deck


ANyone Know whats code to put outdoor electrical under patio being poured.

i know there are local codes. but whats national or maybe other city codes for this?

I was thinking running 1 inch pvc under the patio before pouring and capping off on each end. This is for FUTURE use.

thanks people you are always helpful.

Around here, the conduit for electrical would need to be 18 inches below grade,protected by pressure treated lumber, and marker tape.

Protected by concrete is OK @much less then 18" if its the entire run
Or the part not under concrete has to be deeper
Need to know your location
