Here is my cure for this????

In reply to Deck Beams by Tim Twessanol on August 2nd, 2000 11:01 AM [Go to top of thread]

I would divide the 27 foot span into one 14 and one 13. Have the boards attach to a post at that point.

In my opinion on these beams, where you have a splice or hanging union, you have the weakest area and the spot for a bounce in the deck..

Some people use the sistering method for this, but I still would sink a post and make this the point where they splice.

Good Luck,
