Here's the hands-on information you need to build any kind of deck-- from the most basic to the most sophisticated.
On this tape, professional carpenter Scott Schuttner builds two decks--one a simple, single-level deck that demonstrates the basic principles of deck construction; the other a custom wraparound deck complete with stairs, planters and built-in seating. At each step of the deck-building process, you see firsthand how Schuttner uses his proven, professional techniques to get high-quality results. For example, Schuttner shows you how to:
- Dig and pour footings
- Install leak-free ledgers
- Build framework that's square, level and solid
- Install strong, good-looking railings
