More work on the deck....


You will notice that there are 4 LedgerLoks at 5" each and they are 16" On-Center. I think that should hold the ledger in place.

For the flashing, we used ice and water shield and then put a roll of vinyl flashing on top of that. Should keep the water away from the house.




You are probably wondering why there are pieces of composite decking attached to the wall? Well they will act as block to pull the ledger board away from the house. That way when it rains, the water will fall between the blocking and not sit; thus, keeping our house/ledger/deck from rotting out. They are also cut at 15 degree angles on the top so water won't sit on the top of the blocking, but will roll off. Then we caulked around the blocking mostly for in the winter to keep it from getting behind the blocking and freezing and expanding.


Mike had lots of help... Thanks guys!!!!

This is what it looked like before they started work....
