This collection of 21 articles describes how carpenters and architects avoid the two worst enemies of porches and decks — trapped moisture and poor air circulation.
Through detailed study of porches and decks they have built, these builders illustrate the traditional construction methods that work and those that don't. Using these proven methods along with modern materials such as vinyl decking, pressure-treated lumber and water-repellent stains, they show how to build a deck or porch that will last.
Numerous drawings and color photographs show important design and construction details.
