Mike Guertin

If you have questions about deck design and construction, here's an opportunity to ask deck expert and frequent PDB and JLC contributor Mike Guertin as he joins the American Wood Council's Matt Hunter and Loren Ross for a free virtual panel discussion on all things deck construction. Topics covered will include relevant International Residential Code (IRC) references, AWC’s Design for Code Acceptance 6 (DCA6) – Prescriptive Residential Deck Construction Guide, and other relevant documents. Attendees are asked to come prepared with plenty of questions – in this new panel discussion format, participants are encouraged to engage with the experts and help guide the discussion. Topics will include deck load path requirements and how to satisfy them; proper design and detailing of significant components; "best practices" deck construction techniques; and recent code updates.
