  • Steel Framing for Composite Decking

    1 LU AIA/ASLA

    The introduction of composite deck boards transformed the decking industry more than 20 years ago. However, one factor in the deck assembly did not see a change: the framing. Architects and builders specify and install composites that will not twist, splinter, or get eaten by termites, but most frames are still being built with wood. Putting a high-performance deck board on a low-performing foundation doesn’t make sense. This article will describe benefits of steel deck framing, how to design with, plan, and install steel deck framing. This program is registered with AIA for 1 CEH and with ASLA for 1 Hour. Take the course.
