Do you have questions on deck design? Now’s the chance to ask the pros! Renowned deck expert Mike Guertin joins AWC’s Matt Hunter, BCO, and Loren Ross, PE for a panel discussion on all things deck construction. Topics covered will include relevant International Residential Code (IRC) references, AWC’s Design for Code Acceptance 6 (DCA6) – Prescriptive Residential Deck Construction Guide, and other relevant documents. Attendees are asked to come prepared with plenty of questions – in this new panel discussion format we are encouraging participants to engage with our experts and help guide the discussion!

Learning Objectives:

  2. Recognize proper design and detailing of significant components
  3. Identify best construction practices outlined in DCA6
  4. Indicate relevant analysis requirements and code updates
