For those with Inachi Deck Inspection Book, should recommendations be made to deem this ledger attatchment unaceptable;
When the 2009 IRC says it is one of the accepted methods?
Washer spacers is widely used around here and people frequently ask me if this is the way.
I usually tell them that my preferred method is the lag screw method with flashing.
I just want to make sure that these calls don’t get anyone in trouble.
Should not be called out as a defect.
But in lieu, just a recommendation that differs from what is acceptable to the minimum standards of the code.
