Deck Components

Before diving into building codes, permits, plat maps and so on. It is crucial to familiarize yourself with some basic parts of a deck. This way, you will get a brief exposure to deck framing.

  • Ledger Board – A ledger board is used when the deck is attached to the house. Make sure the ledger is bolted firmly to the house’s framing.
  • Floor Joists – The size of the floor joists depend on the species of lumber, the space between two joists and expected design load.
  • Solid Blocking – Solid blocking is important for preventing taller joists from twisting onto their sides while excess load.
  • Support Beam – Support beam channelizes the weight of the floor joists by transferring load onto the posts. A solid lumber beam or a built-up beam is usually used.
  • Band/Rim Joist – Band or rim joist is present on the either sides of the deck. They just carry a fraction of the load unless the stairs are attached to them.

Fence Components

  • Pickets – Pickets are available in various widths, finishes and shaped tops. Some pickets are full- cut and others are a nominal.
  • Brackets – Wolf and White Ltd. offers one piece and two piece style brackets for installing your fence on metal posts. We use high quality lag screws to ensure durability.
  • Rails – Rails play a vital role in the successful fence installation. Fence rails are either attached or nailed to the post.
  • Posts – Posts are the foundation of the fence. It is advised to invest in the best foundation. Plan out the things before digging the first post hole.
  • Kick-board– Kick-boards are installed at the base of the fence. They are meant to protect the bottom of the fence.
  • Cap board – Cap boards add value to your new fence and will set it apart from others. A cap board ensures that the posts and rails are of the same height.
