Rim (Band) Joist Repair?? w/Pics


Cool thanks for the replies. Tomorrow I will be out there working on the railing. Its tough because I only have a few hours to work on it and then have to go in to work. So just when I start getting stuff done I need to stop and get ready for work The weekends have been rainy so I havent been able to get anything done during them. I will post the pics once the deck is completed.

That's the trouble with weekends, isn't it? Always lousy weather.

Anyway, it's looking good so far...looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Best of luck!

Rim (Band) Joist Repair?? w/Pics


Here is the main deck guide for residences. http://www.awc.org/Publications/DCA/DCA6/DCA6-09.pdf Use it for your railing- Fig. 24. If you build a larger version deck again, here are some pointers to follow: attaching a beam to posts- Fig. 9. Nailing for shear flow- Fig. 11. Flashing at wood attachment runs past the hangers- ledger no greater than depth of band joist- Fig. 14. Bolts or lags not in top or bottom 2" of ledger- washers required- Fig. 19 You may want to secure your band joist to floor rim joist with metal strapping to prevent deck pull-away. Sorry to rain on your parade, don't shoot the messenger.......

Be safe, Gary

Nice job! Looks good. I can't see your graspable handrail, it may be hidden from the camera angle. Letter carrier will like the new work!

Be safe, Gary
