What It's About:

Say goodbye to pulling strings and slamming stakes in the ground for layout. Stop wasting time ripping and routing the final deck board and waiting for footing inspections. Top-down deck framing gets you up and running quickly! Mark will show rolling joists, ladder blocking and guard post placement, as well as quick and easy ways to build and install custom posts, beams and guardrails. He’ll even demonstrate chevron decking—it’s easier than you think.

What You'll Learn:

  • Cutting techniques that save time.
  • How to set beams, posts and band-joists without a footing inspection, and simple, effective ways to install joists faster with a crew or working alone.
  • Parting boards and chevron decking for a custom look, and smart, simple trim elements to set your decks apart.
  • Guard post and post-to-girder connection alternatives.

How to Attend:

Participants must be registered for a full registration package or a 1-day education with expo pass package valid for the day of the session they wish to attend. Seating for Builder Clinic sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
