Rim board needs to be replaced that supported a ledger board. Behind the rim board is an I-Joist that runs parallel. The rim board is attached to it. The I joist is in good condition. the I-joist/rim board is under a 2 x 6 wall.

Wanting to know if can remove the rimboard with out causing damage to the house. It appears that all the weight is on the I-joist. The rim board is brittle and is show no bowing due to weight on it.

Got a picture?
I'd bet there's some repairs on the outside of the house that will need to be done now.
This is one of the main reasons I always try and build any deck free standing, not attached to the house.
