Re: HELP! Deck failed inspection because of Guard Rails! (Ontario)


Right, didn't read the whole thing....but if the guard rails absolutely need to be tagged to the joist.....and there is no easy way to do it.....cut through the decking at each post location, sink in a duplicate post, fill in between the two, and put the sandwich together with six inch ledger locks.

The brackets are the easy way. OP just needs to communicate with the inspector.
