Deck afterthought support

  • Decks

This was done as an afterthought to help support the ledger board.  First, there was no ledger, the joists were attached directly to the compressible cedar shingle siding with undersized joist hangers.  Now the ledger board is set improperly over the siding, with an insufficient amount of bolts too close to the board edges and inline, and lacks the required flashing over the ledger.
