I was going to run the joists from the house perpendicular to the longer ledger board, which is why I wasn't sure about what to do with that ledger on the right sideBoth ledgers need replacing with pressure treated wood, and they need to be either lagged into the band of the house or use Head Loks instead of relying on nails alone. Which way will your joists be running? From the house or parallel to the door wall?
Sorry. Thanks auto correct. It is a Grace tape product used as flashing. Personally I like the Georgia pacific force field brand which is way more flexible for making sill flashings. Typar is like the Lowe’s or HD brand. All the same idea. And my personal hard learned warning to all is…..if it is hot out, when you pull the backing off, it will stick to whatever it touches pretty much instantly, not the least of which is itself….and once it sticks to itself it is NOT pulling apart…..ever.What type of flashing would be ideal with pressure treated wood?
What is victor/vicor?
It might depend on the load you are going to attach out at the end , do a sketch of the deck with the floor joists so we can see what you have in mind.Hi guys another question related to the ledger board. I decided I want to go 12' against the house but the ledger is 10' what do I need to do to get the extra 2'? Do I attach a longer ledger board that extends off the house and does it need to be supported?
I made some changes for you and assumed 2x10 joists.Sorry if this drawing is very amateur please let me know if I've messed anything up.
I was planning on running 2x10x16 3ply beams for the beams which would be max length.
I'm not too sure how I should space the posts. The posts don't need to be located underneath a joist correct?
Right now my spacing that I drew isn't very consistent.
I'm not sure also what to do with the 10' ledger board do I just extend it 2' off the house or would I need a post for that extra 2'?
As well, I'm not sure what to do with J11 as it will be where the 2' ledger board is. Should I move it over to the right and mess up my spacing a bit?
I'm also not too sure if I need that 2nd beam but the deck is 14' long so I was assuming I'd need it.
Thank you for this I have some questions below:
Yes the double ledger, nail one up and then another and bolt them just like a single with longer bolts.Thank you for this I have some questions below:
For the double ledger how do I attach this? I'm trying to find a youtube video but I can't seem to find one with a double ledger.
What does the "Extend Ledger 2"" mean? Does this mean to extend the 4' ledger so it touches the deck? Also how should I connect that joist to the 4' ledger?
For the 2 beams can I just connect those using a beam connector on the middle footing? As well, does my 1' beam cantilever work here and then just place the last footer in the middle of the other 2 footers?
Thanks a tonne!
Oops I was initially doing 16" OC because my joist span was going to be 14' with a 2' cantilever since it's changed to a 12' with a 2' cantilever I can now use 16" OC so I will change that and redraw the sketch. I think I understand everything else you mentioned I will redraw my plans and post again sorry if this is very tedious.If you replace the siding on the 2 ft wall, I would do the double ledger first a little short so you can do all the flashing on that and down the end of it ans still have roof to put the inside corner down for the siding. So that 2" should be fine for that. That will be different hanger for the joist 2" way,
The one on the right as the nails inside so you can use it right at the end of the ledger, there are a few places you can use those, at the corners.

Normally we do 16"OC, why are you going for 12?
If you are thinking perimeter board, that is early in the planning too.Oops I was initially doing 16" OC because my joist span was going to be 14' with a 2' cantilever since it's changed to a 12' with a 2' cantilever I can now use 16" OC so I will change that and redraw the sketch.

I thank you so much for the time you have taken to help me. I am going to write down my full build and complete all my permit documents and then I will probably post again with my full build along with all materials just to ensure that I'm doing everything properly.
Most home owners build it all with screws, but best to ask inspectors if you are getting a permit and a permit is a suggestion.I was just looking in to fasteners for the deck should I be using screws for everything?
