Deck Framing


Recommended Posts

I haven't seen flush beams on decks in ages, unless this is an older style screened porch, because it uses the frame to transfer roof load right onto the flush beam and down onto the footing instead of the decks cantilevered ledge.

On most decks I use flush beams when framing angled decks, octagons or when building stair landings because doing a cantilevered beam is less practical in these cases. I guess the way CA is designed to a more modern deck construction since not many people do screened porches and prefer more open deck environment.
