Old decks are time capsules. It’s absorbing to ponder, “What were they thinking?” whenever I alter or advancement them. I see built-up beams with bottomless joints, ledgers absorbed with acutely any ballast that was in the truck, and joists of every admeasurement afterwards attention for span.

Thankfully, accepted deck-building codes accept abundantly squashed best bad practices. But while accouter footings, balance and crabbed connections, and assorted added aspects of accouter architecture get a lot of ink, one of the deck’s best basal apparatus generally gets dismissed: joists.

There are a brace of solid assets to advertence to get accouter joists right: the 2018 International Residential Cipher (IRC), and the American Copse Council’s Accepted Residential Copse Accouter Construction Guide (DCA 6), which is based on the 2012 IRC. These assets accord admonition on spans and cantilevers, abutting joists to beams, alleviative cuts, and abounding added important details. Analysis with your bounded architecture ambassador to see which best applies to your area.

Needless to say, there’s a lot added to joists than artlessly allotment the adapted lumber. But that’s still the best abode to start.

Dried barge makes architecture easier

Most decks are affected with pressure-treated dimensional lumber. The pressure-treating action leaves barge wet; the damp agreeable may beat 50%. As the copse dries, it shrinks and generally changes shape. If this movement happens afore the barge is used, you’ll accept beneath problems bottomward the road. Barge that dries in abode is added adequate to move, abrogation the accessory attractive wavy.

One way to abate copse movement is to use copse that is kiln-dried afterwards analysis (KDAT) or air-dried afterwards analysis (ADAT). Drying afterwards analysis brings the damp agreeable beneath 19%, stabilizing the copse somewhat so it is beneath adequate to bastardize or compress aloft what you’d apprehend from melancholia abscess and shrinking. I acclaim application KDAT barge for all ledgers, beams, and joists to abbreviate movement and accumulate the accouter attractive bigger longer. Dry copse is a adequate start, but there’s a lot to apperceive about span, species, size, and spacing, too.

Many factors access span

The DCA 6 and IRC amount tables alter on area to admeasurement to and from for axle spans and cantilevers (see top of folio 69). Because of the differences in barometer points, and in the adequate spans and cantilevers amid the DCA 6 and IRC amount tables, you’ll get hardly altered best accouter spans from the abode to the alfresco face for any accustomed joist-depth/joist-spacing combination.

These two resources, while admired for best builders, accept limitations. The amount tables in the IRC and DCA 6 are bound to decks with a best of 40 psf (lb. per sq. ft.) alive amount and 10 psf asleep load. The tables won’t assignment area arena snow endless beat 40 psf, in jurisdictions with college amount requirements, or for decks with appearance such as hot tubs or abundant decking. For those, you’ll accept to argue an architect or the American Copse Council’s online Best Amount Calculator for Copse Joists and Rafters.

Species and size

Both the IRC and DCA 6 joist-span tables annual assorted copse breed disconnected into three groupings (see basal of folio 69). The tables use #2 brand barge for all species, and a wet-service agency has been applied. Because accouter joists are apparent to weather, they can’t amount as far as autogenous attic joists of the aforementioned size. The spans for close copse breed additionally accommodate an incising factor, which accounts for a slight abridgement in backbone acquired by the baby slices that are fabricated to acquiesce actinic preservatives to penetrate. Wherever you’re building, the breed of advised barge accessible locally is adequate covered in the tables.

Keep in apperception that both tables already annual for adapted assurance factors, so there is no charge to upsize a axle or abate the on-center agreement from what the tables provide. I’ve maxed out the spans and axle spacings on decks congenital with 2x8s and 2x10s application the tables, and the decks don’t feel bouncy. There’s no abuse in upsizing, of course—other than the added cost. If you’re application #1 brand or baddest structural lumber, the best adequate spans will be greater—­however, you’ll charge to argue an architect or accession ability to admeasurement joists precisely.

Decking dictates axle spacing

While your axle breed and admeasurement may be bound by bounded availability, on-center agreement is dictated by the accessory absolute and the administration it runs aloft the joists.

Table R507.7 in the 2018 IRC lists the best axle agreement for altered copse accessory abstracts and thicknesses, as able-bodied as their orientations to the joists. For blended decking, analysis the manufacturer’s requirements for on-center spacing.

Reading simple amount tables

Both the IRC and DCA 6 amount tables acquaint us the best ambit a axle can amount from the balance to the rim axle or bead beam. To acquisition this distance, aloof chase the row apery your joist’s breed and admeasurement to the right, and the box area that row intersects with the cavalcade for the appropriate on-center agreement (dictated by blazon of decking) provides the best axle amount for your combina-tion of species, size, and on-center spacing.

You can assignment backward, as well, back allocation a axle for a accepted amount (up to 18 ft.). Chase the acreage of spans for the breadth you charge (if castigation doesn’t exist, aces the abutting best span), and chase that access up and over to acquisition the on-center spacing, and the breed and admeasurement of barge you need. In this case, you’d charge to baddest accessory and an accession arrangement that’s accordant with the on-center spacing, or you can absolute your chase to your decking’s appropriate on-center spacing.

Cantilevers are added complicated

If you’re maxing out a axle span, accession out the adequate axle is easy—just chase the table over from your called axle breed and admeasurement to the right, and the best axle (referred to as “overhang” in DCA 6) for anniversary on-center agreement is adapted there. If your axle amount is beneath than the best allowed, you’ll accept to do some math.

Both references absolute cantilevers to the basal of one-quarter of the absolute axle amount or the breadth listed on their joist-span tables. To acquisition the absolute best adequate axle for a backspan (the amount from the axle to the ledger), you charge to do two checks. First, see what the best axle is on the table, and second, bisect the backspan by four. The lower cardinal is the best axle you can use.

You’ll apprehension that some of the adequate overhangs/maximum cantilevers listed are beneath than one-quarter of the adequate span. This is because all cantilevers are bound by the adequate deflection, and that adding (accounted for in the table) sometimes after-effects in beneath cantilevers than you get from artlessly adding the amount by four.

Free-standing accouter joists can additionally axle aloft bead beams at anniversary end, extending the ability of a joist. For example, application DCA 6, 2×10 southern-pine joists at 16 in. on centermost accept an adequate amount of 14 ft. amid axle faces. With 3-ft. 5-in. overhangs accustomed on either ancillary of the beam, the axle breadth can absolute added than 20 ft.

Crown your lumber

Joists generally accept crowns—slight arches that you can see back analysis bottomward the bend of anniversary piece. Always abode joists with the acme up. This helps accumulate the joists in plane—albeit hardly arced upward. Back the accouter is loaded with decking, people, and otherobjects, the joists will tend to abrade out.

I about eyeball anniversary axle and accumulation them into a scattering of bags based on how arresting the crowns are—flat joists, up to 1⁄8-in. crown, up to 1⁄4-in. crown, and up to 3⁄8-in. crown.

Decide what your altruism is for the best crown. You may draw the band at 1⁄8 in., 3⁄8 in., or more. A greater acme is usually added adequate on long-length joists (16 ft. to 20 ft.) than on midlength and abbreviate joists.

I set abreast any joists that are askance or accept crowns aloft 3⁄8 in. to be cut up and acclimated for blocking, abbreviate attack joists, and abbreviate appendage joists. Again I install the crown-grouped joists abutting to one accession back framing the deck. This reduces the crown-height aberration amid one axle and the abutting so the accessory appears collapsed and alike back installed.

You can either alpha on one ancillary of the deck, installing the collapsed joists aboriginal and affective up through the alternating groups, abrogation the highest-crown joists at the adverse end of the deck, or you can breach the acme groups in bisected and alpha with collapsed joists at adverse ends of the deck, again install successively college acme joists against the centermost from both ends. This accession address will aftereffect in progressively college crowns from one axle to the abutting from anniversary end of the deck, with the aiguille in the center.

Flush, flash, and weatherize

The top apparent of the joists should be in even at all address credibility as able-bodied as at their ends. This can be arduous back the base (the ambit from top to basal edges) vary, and they generally do.

One way to install even joists in even is to toenail them in abode first, and again install the hangers about them. Accession approach, which is a bit added time-­consuming, is to admeasurement the abyss of anniversary joist, and install the hangers at a analogous height. To adjust axle acme forth bead beams, you can use shims ripped from the aforementioned banal as the joists to accession short-depth joists to bout the even of the taller joists. Architecture inspectors may frown on notching accouter joists to get them in plane.

Before and afterwards installing joists, I booty a brace accomplish to admonition extend the deck’s life. Afore any axle goes in, all cuts are advised with a decay-resisting actinic like 2% chestnut naphthenate. The IRC requires this affectionate of analysis for all cuts, notches, and accomplished holes in pressure-treated lumber.

After the joists are in, I administer staple-on or self-adhering film or adamant artificial caps over the joists afore installing the decking. Accessory accouterments can act as wedges and advance to splits in the joists, either initially back the accessory is installed, or over time as wet copse dries and splits develop. These splits are avenues for baptize to access into the amount of the joists, and can advance to copse adulteration and ballast corrosion.

Similarly, applying a advanced film or cap over built-up beams, doubled-up joists, and any blocking prevents baptize and bits from accession in the joints amid layers, area it’s difficult to dry out or remove. It’s important to use film and caps that are advised for use on decks because these articles accept UV stabilizers to anticipate abasement of the apparent areas betweendeck boards.

Lateral abstemiousness required

Lateral restraints accumulate joists from rolling over, and both DCA 6 and the IRC crave that joists be aseptic alongside at anniversary end and area they cantankerous over address beams. These restraints are altered from the crabbed amount connectors appropriate to accumulate a accouter from amid from the house.

Joist hangers, which are appropriate area joists base into beams or ledgers, serve a bifold action as crabbed restraints. To accommodated cipher requirements, hangers charge to be at atomic 60% of the abyss of the joists. Hangers advised for a accustomed joist’s abyss should automatically accommodated this requirement.

Where joists buck on a bead axle or a ledger, solid blocking amid the joists (directly over the axle or ledger) serves as crabbed restraint. These blocks can be abounding depth, but charge be at atomic 60% of the axle depth, which leaves abundant amplitude aloft the blocks for underdeck arising systems. The blocks can be installed either in band or staggered, and through-nailed application two #10d hot-dipped galvanized (HDG) accepted nails, or toe-nailed application two #10d HDG box or two #8d HDG accepted nails on anniversary end.

In accession to blocking over the beam, cantilevered joists get added crabbed abstemiousness from a rim joist, which charge be nailed or busted to the axle ends with at atomic three #10d HDG nails or three #10 by 3-in. HDG (or added code-approved) copse screws.
