Deck Ledger - Attached at End

Structural Building Components Association (SBCA)

Proper attachment of the deck ledger to the house is critical for ensuring that an “attached” deck is safely and securely supported at this location.  Here we provide details for attaching a 2” nominal lumber deck ledger to the end of residential floor systems constructed with metal plate connected wood (MPCW) floor trusses.

Details for attachment of deck ledgers to the side of floor trusses can be found here.
