BCD301 – Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide (DCA6 - 2009 IRC Version)


PDF YouTube SelfStudy Subjects

DCA 6 includes guidance on provisions of the 2009 International Residential Code (IRC) pertaining to single level residential wood deck construction. Provisions contained in this document that are not included in the IRC are considered good practice recommendations. Based on the limited number of changes to deck provisions in the 2012 IRC, the DCA 6 2009 IRC version can be used in jurisdictions enforcing the 2012 IRC. This webinar will provide an overview of DCA 6 along with its Commentary and include several examples showing application of the deck guide.
