Deck (made into living room)

What does everyone say in their inspection reports when you cant see how the deck ledger board is attached to the house ?? (Originally was a deck made into a living room)



I would advise or referrence the city for a building permit with inspection history if this is an addition, otherwise just qualify the inablity to inspect past the exterior finish materials. I would also be vigalent at looking at the interior for any signs of movement or separation air leakages etc.

That is a considerable amount of loading upon those support legs and ledger. I would recommend that my client obtain copies of any building permits issued for the addition. If there was no permit issued, I would recommend that the structure be further evaluated by a registered engineer.
