Holes in 2x12m deck
253 Attachment(s)
I believe I have a 2x12 shown here. I want to put some light surface mounted but don't want to run conduit/pvc surface mounted. Is it against code to drill a small hole in the 2x12? I would like to run outdoor cable behind it to an outdoor box and poke thru to the light. We stripped the stain and are going to re-stain. Thanks

check out the information contained on this link. This is the NJ Residential Building Code for notching and drilling limitations. Go to page 109 for the diagram and information.

Hope this helps! :thumbsup:
