Discover how to design, build, and maintain outdoor structures that are safe, strong, durable and distinctive with The JLC Guide to Decks and Porches.

An essential tool for builders, remodelers, inspectors, code and safety officials, architects, designers, engineers, and building product suppliers. Decks and porches are a favorite with homeowners, but they can be a challenge to contractors.

Fast-changing codes, new lumber treatment technologies, and composite decking products make it hard to build an exterior space that's attractive, structurally sound, and requires low maintenance.

This guide to best practices covers everything a contractor needs to know about building a safe deck or porch, including:

Deck ledger details to prevent collapse
Safe railings for the toughest loads
Guidelines for corrosion-proof deck hardware
Common code violations and how to avoid them
Fast footing strategies for deck posts
Efficient framing techniques for decks and porches
Performance comparisons for wood and composite decking products
How to use hidden decking fasteners
Selecting and applying long-lasting deck finishes
Details for cable railings, rod railings, and curved railings
Leak-proof decks over living spaces
Distinctive porch details that won't break the budget
Paving techniques for brick, stone, tile, and concrete patios
Low-voltage lighting
Deck maintenance and restoration
and much more.

JLC is a leader on publicizing problems and solutions associated with deck collapse and railing failures. What distinguishes this book from the slew of lightweight DIY books is our best-practice emphasis on safety, durability, and efficient construction techniques.

Fully illustrated and written in plain English, it's the contractor's must-have guide to building decks and porches.
