I need some advice regarding blocking or bridging to prevent the deck joists from “racking”.
Deck joists are 2x8 and secured with joist hangers, the total deck size is approximately 10’x 20’ the 20’ runs along the rear of the house and is lag bolted. There is no blocking or bridging between the joists. Is there a structural concern or safety issue not having this blocking present??? Should this even be mentioned in the report?
