Saw off where

In reply to deck building advice by K Street on August 21st, 2000 06:08 AM [Go to top of thread]

Can you give a few more details about the current deck and the plan for the new deck?

*Are you saying cut off the joists at the beam? (ie cut off the 5 foot cantilever..)

*Then where does the new deck go? - Are you setting up another post/beam farther out?

I would just sister the joists. Don't cut them off - just add the new ones next to the old ones and have a 5 foot overlap. (So the new joists will sit on the same beam as the old joists.) The only places it will be noticeable is underneath and in the deck/screw pattern... and it will be hardly noticeable at that.

Please describe the situation again...
