how to build & secure a new deck on top of an existing porch


Posted by Mickey on August 7th, 1998 04:23 PM

I am tying to figure out how to build a deck on top of a concrete porch (about 12x12). The deck that I want will be larger than the porch by three to five feet, but I do not know how to properly "foot" the joists or other supports on top of the the concrete.
I am aware of how to pour traditional footings for the over hanging portion, but what should I do to secure this?
Any advise and I'll be very grateful.
Thanx in advance.
