Description

Architecture, building codes, and design are not static; they change constantly. That's why there's a new edition of the bestselling Black & Decker: The Complete Guide to Decks, incorporating updates to national building codes, as well as new developments in building materials and design. Calling attention to composite deckboards and railings, as well as other PVC products made from recycled plastic, the new materials systems featured in this book are environmentally friendly, easy to work with, rot resistant, and very low maintenance.

Whether you opt for manufactured deck products or wood, the success of your project depends upon a sturdy deck undercarriage. Accomplishing this isn't difficult, but building the framework requires that you have the latest information on building codes. In recent years, these codes have changed significantly, affecting everything from post diameter to allowable joist hangers to railing height and even the size of concrete footings. Black & Decker: The Complete Guide to Decks is the only DIY deck book that's fully updated to conform to the latest codes.

Chapters covered in the book include:

Deck Planning & Design

Deck Materials & Tools

Structural Support

Decking

Stairs

Railings

Accessories

Finishing & Maintaining Your Deck

Custom Deck Projects

Gallery of Inspiring Decks

Black & Decker: The Complete Guide to Decks offers complete step-by-step photos and instructions, so even homeowners with limited DIY experience are assured of a deck that meets their needs. So, don't wait any longer; build the deck of your dreams and start enjoying it!
