Decks/attaching deck to raised slab house
I'm wanting to add a 16 x 16 covered deck on my house, the back door is about 2' above the ground and all brick. How would i go about attaching the ledger board to the house? Covered deck will attach to existing roof. Any help would be very helpful. Thanks
I would make a free standing, deck. Meaning I would have 3 footings down each side of the deck to carry the roof load. I would use wedge anchors in the brick, not for structural support but only to keep your 3-4 season porch pulled tight to the existing house.
