Last month I designed our deck with your deck design software. Now when I a ready to start buying stuff I can't find the software online anywhere. Can you please tell me how to get back to my project?
Hello byself. Welcome to the Community!
Please see aboveaveragejoe's post here:
I hope this helps,
I need to figure the angle for my 4x6 supports posts from 2nd story deck to ledger board on house. it is a 4'x8' deck and the support beams will be approx. 10' - 10'3" can someone tell me how to do that?
Hello JEA and thank you for your question.
JEA I’m assuming when you said; "angle for my supports posts" you meant joists. Support posts should not be angled; they should be always set in a plumb vertical position.
Deck codes differ by state but typically decks are sloped 2% percent or 1/4" per foot fall (one inch drop in slope per four feet of travel).
In your case on a 10’ foot span your joists should be lowered (from ledger to post) or at the beam connection for total 2.5” inches.
Consult your local building code for strict compliance.
Hope this helps.
