Ledger boards carpenters best friend “fiend”
I showed a deck ledger board, that was canted, to a couple of clients and informed the owner not to use it.
The owner had no problem fixing the defect and my clients were VERY happy I spotted it, to say the least.
Their house warming party was a success as they had invited me and I got 4 jobs from that party.
Great article, Randy!
