The following are a few tips for building a new deck:

  • The first thing you need to do is to determine the sizes of your framing material.
  • Once you have the sizes of your framing material figured out, you’ll want to attach the ledger.
  • Once the ledger has been attached, you’ll need to set footings and piers. You will have to measure where the location of the footings will be and mark them before digging your holes.
  • After setting your footings and piers, it’s time to install your post bases and side rim joists. Once this is complete, the front rim joists, interior joists, and beams need to be installed.
  • Finally, it’s time to attach your trim and decking.

These are the basic steps for building a simple deck. If you need to find wood in Kansas City for your deck, be sure to contact us at Schutte Lumber.
