Simpson Strong-Tie, a leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has announced the publication of its newest tech bulletin, Connection Solutions to Meet the DCA 6 Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide, assembled as an at-a-glance manual to explain and provide Simpson Strong-Tie solutions for the popular DCA 6 construction guide published by the American Wood Council.
With lumber prices decreasing from recent highs, homeowners and deck contractors are set to resume thousands of deck projects that had been on pause due to cost and availability of materials across 2020 and the beginning of 2021.
The newly created DCA 6 solutions guide is designed to provide guidance for designing and building single-level residential wood decks based on provisions for the 2015 International Residential Code® (IRC®) pertaining to single-level residential wood deck construction.
Available on the Simpson Strong-Tie website [https://www.strongtie.com/], the Connection Solutions to Meet the DCA 6 Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide tech bulletin is designed as a comprehensive, quick-reference resource for code officials, deck builders, lumberyards, and DIY enthusiasts and includes detailed information, tips, and techniques for using Simpson Strong-Tie fastener, anchor, ledger board, and connector solutions for building decks to the DCA 6 guide.
