Why don't you cement the post in the ground instead of dirt ??? Thats alot of hpoeing and tamping has no chance?? How much for that ?? Ballparkit bud !!! Come on man !!!

Hey Craig, you make some very informative videos. Have you had any problems with the 4x4s rotting by using your method of pouring concrete in the bottom of the footing and then filling with dirt? It just seems like placing the 4x4 directly on the concrete would make it susceptible to rot. Thanks for all the videos man.

Building a deck for "beginners?" What we see in this video is the work of a highly skilled professional trying to pass it off as any beginner could do it. He has all the right tools with all the right equipment that he has used thousands of times and makes it look so easy. (as if anyone could do it) That's the problem with these "do it yourself" videos, they ain't so do-it-yourself.

Why no spacing on floor board? No drainage?
TROOPERfarcry (3 дня назад)
You mentioned that the post-holes should be dug 42" - 48" inches, and dependent on the frostline. I'm in Georgia, and from what I can tell on a Google search, I'm looking at about a 5" frostline. Does this mean my hole should be 5 inches deep? does it mean that my post should extend five inches deep before sitting on the concrete? Or does it mean that the bottom of the post and the top of the concrete should both be 5 inches deep? I'm having difficulty in using the "5-inch frostline" information correctly. Thanks.

How are you compacting dirt around the posts to create that firm support so they don't wiggle? Do you only use 1/2 bag concrete per post hole? I want to build a 12'x12' lower (elevated ground level) deck. Would that be 8 posts? Loved the video, I'm slightly concerned about the post digging since I'm little :)

I guess this doesn't really apply to the video but hopefully I'll be able to get an answer. My next door neighbors are planning to replace their deck with a screened in porch. They are willing to just give their deck to us, instead of getting rid of it. It's just an average sized deck (not sure of exact measurements, but it's not a huge deck). What would be a good way to move the deck from their yard to our yard?

What do you think of the pre-cast concrete bases for a short deck? Are they secure? Do they go on a concrete pad?

This deck great if you are building it to move away. It has a "looks good from my house" appeal. My problem is that it will certainly and without doubt rot your house out from under you. I feel that it is far more important than weed management. WHERE IS THE FLASHING? There's none at all. Ledger board flashing? Just skipped it, and from the video, I can see no one ever put any flashing on a single joist,nothing on the ledger, and nothing on the house. No gaps, no airflow, in the deck boards means pooling water will either roll back into the house (no flashing to prevent it rotting out the non-treated ledger board) or just sit in the cracks. Freezing, expanding, and cracking the wood in cold weather. Steam rotting the deck in hot weather. Codes are different in states and counties, so I wonder if this violates a building code. It's' as if there is no precipitation at all to plan for? The deck construction is great, but has no accounting for any moist weather. You spend more time telling how to stop weeds from growing under the deck, than how to stop the deck you just built from rotting your house. This deck will actually destroy the house sure as an equation. It is this: Moisture X Time = rotted wood. Hey, the ground look5s very parched, maybe they get zero rain ever and this will never be a problem. ;)

You can apologize to me after i tell you the deck in this video is freestanding and doesn't connect to the house.

Question: Can I do this and use concrete blocks instead of digging holes for the posts? I can't dig here, but this video is so informative otherwise, I'd love to be able to follow it. If a different structure is needed for concrete blocks, oh well :(
Paul Perez (10 дней назад)
Hi Craig Heffernan im a new subscriber and you sir had me at this great video. I just want to ask you because i bought a house with newly finished deck with ni railings how do you suggest putting a railings with no post on the deck. Do you have a video about adding it? And how do you maintain a deck? Thank you and God Bless.
david gorelle (10 дней назад)
Okay, nothing too complicated. One question though: Why do you let the concrete set before you put the posts in?

Hi Craig! thanks for sharing! My husband and I will be attempting to build our own deck to save on costs. Can you explain why you didn't leave any space between deckboards? We live in south western Ontario Canada. Thanks!
Craig Heffernan (13 дней назад)
The decking in this video is 5/4 x 6 treated pine. The boards have moisture content when first purchased. When you install these decking boards you put them tight together. As the moisture in the boards dry out the boards will shrink leaving a nice 3/16" gap between them. If you space the boards you will end up having to large of a gap. If using any other material that is completely dried before you build, then you will need to space the boards. Thanks for watching and i hope this was helpful, Craig Heffernan

No, you won't have a problem with that. The decking in this video is 5/4 x 6 treated pine. The boards have moisture content when first purchased.

Hey had a question about installing the backband posts before putting them into the concrete footings ..i know you level the 2x8 before making your connections but will this give you problems if the holes arent dug exactly the same size ? Or a post might not be touching the bottom? Would that technique still work?

I've never built a deck but I am about to so I've been watching a lot of youtube vids. One question I had was, shouldn't the deck weight (and the people standing on it) be supported directly by the posts and not let the screws bear the weight? Just wondering after I watched this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjQZ9rtbYcM)

Hi great job. Just wondering how come it doesn’t need flashing. ? And another video say the bolts don’t have enough shearing strength
Dill Wiggle (20 дней назад)
When you put the back band with the posts into the holes against the house if it was not level how do you level it when its sitting on cement in the holes and all nailed together ?

Bob Miller (23 дня назад)
I bought a house with a deck like this and it was built about 10 years ago. It is now rotting out from underneath due to moisture getting trapped with no way to escape. The skirting is nice looking around the bottom but will make it difficult for water to evaporate and escape. My backyard is pretty well shaded which I'm sure makes the issue worse. Since this deck is not in the shade maybe it won't suffer the same fate. The quality and construction overall looks very good though. I'm debating ripping my whole deck out and putting in a nice stone patio or replacing the floor joists and deck boards which are both rotting. Any advice on how I can keep the same thing from happening again if I replace the joists and deck boards?

Do you have a video on leveling ground for a pool or anything related? First time pool owner. It's 16'x48". Any suggestions are welcomed! Attempt 1 was a fail. Found your video on the pool deck & got hooked just watching how easy you make it look.
Thair Afaneh (24 дня назад)
Very helpful, but my only concern was the spacing of the planks. Would I need to space them slightly to allow for expansion due to weather?
wummerG (25 дней назад)
Love the look. Couple of questions though, I see you have no spacing between the boards. Doesn't that cause issues when the boards swell when wet and rot because water gets trapped. The other question is about using soil around the posts. Doesn't it rot pretty quickly when in direct contact with soil?
Michael Manning (25 дней назад)
no concrete around the post?

What size is used for a 6x6 deck
Steve Andrews (27 дней назад)
Wouldn't the plastic collect a lot of water towards the house? And I dunno how long those studs are gonna stay tight with just dirt..nope.
ACATNAMED SCOOP (27 дней назад)
nice but if you put the deck boards tight in my state its nothing but trouble with all the rain + snow we need the gaps for drainage

wont water pool in the plastic underneath the deck? or was that a permeable fabric?

Excellent video! Do you happen to have video or plans for a 6x12 porch with steps going across the entire front? Lol. No, but seriously, how did you level that first board on the back? I can't imagine concrete was exact depth on all three holes. Do you drop posts in and mark front? How'd you do that with boards moving around? Everything else I get completely! Just that one crucial step I wonder about. Thank you in advance and thank you for the video.

Explain better about the step stringers. And how to you get to the figure of 24 plus inches on the post at bottom of steps. And isn't just the nails and the 2 bolts holding the weight of the deck if your post aren't notched for the framing to sit in? I'm new at this but need more explanation for some of the things done.

Every other video I see them cut the stringers. Does nailing a block on meet code for a staircase with more steps? Also you should mention the screws and nails should be acq or the metal will corrode quickly with treated lumber. .. and the whole deck will collapse.

Why 15 inches for joist? Why not 16
Craig Heffernan (1 месяц назад)
If you use 16" you will end up with the last joist too close to the end. when i use 15" on center, it evenly spaces them out
