I nstalling Deck Joists OVERVIEW Introduction Joists provide the framing platform for the deck boards. Before you can install the joists, the ledger should be in place along the house and the grider(s) should be secured to the posts. The joists will be anchored to the house via the ledger and then supported by the girders. Time to complete this project depends on the size of the deck and the level of help available, the times listed here are for two people on a 10’x 30’ deck with the house defining two sides of the deck. • Beginner - 2 to 3 days • Intermediate - 1 to 2 days • Advanced - about 1 day STEPS 1. Cut the two outside joists to length. Take the first joist and position it next to the end of the ledger. Screw it in place with a screw gun. Position the opposite end of the joist on top of and flush with the end of the beam. Screw it in place by angling a screw through the edge of the joist and into the beam. Repeat for the other outside joists that attach to the house.
