Railings & Connections

Best Practices: Decks - Railings & Connections


DFLeavitt

As a Northern Utah Home Inspector, Railings and connections are an important part of keeping your guests and small children safe. This is another segment in a series provided by the Journal of Light Construction trade magazine, and while all of the information presented isn’t mandated by the building codes, several of the specifics greatly exceed the code and this is why they are deemed “Best Practices”. If you are going to build a deck, or have one built, then I highly recommend that you take the safer “Best Practices” approach. It may cost more on the initial investment of the build, but the “Best Practices” detailing will provide years of trouble free peace of mind while you enjoy time on your deck.
