To simplify installation of an attached deck to a house clad with brick or stone, DeckStruc steel ledger brackets are engineered to transfer loads from the deck ledger directly to the house framing, relieving the house band joist and the brick or stone veneer claddings from carrying any structural loads. Designed to be installed 4 to 5 feet apart, the brackets provide a 6-inch-wide gap between wall sheathing and the inside face of the deck ledger. They consist of an interior mounting channel that bears on the top plate of a framed wall and fastens between the floor joists, and an exterior ledger support that through-bolts to the mounting channel. Pricing starts at about $162 per bracket.
