Why the slope? Is this a deck with spaced boards or a waterproof deck?I'm going to build an elevated deck and it will have a 3" slope over a 12' span. When I attach my 2x10 joist to the ledger should I cut the end slightly angled so the whole end touches the ledger face?
I knew that.Ron this is the same project you were helping me on in this thread http://www.diychatroom.com/f19/deck-garage-underneath-water-leaks-42887/
It will have a fiberglass surface so the water needs to drain away from the house.
