Dunn Lumber partnered with professional deck builder Ron Spillers from West Coast Decks to create a series of short videos covering common decking questions. In this video, Ron discusses:

  • the structural advantages of an attached deck
  • the importance of the ledger board (which connects the deck to the home) 
  • when to consider a freestanding deck—such as with brick homes
