Description: Until recently, 4×4 posts were used to support decks with little thought to how much they carried or how tall they were.  The 2015 IRC shocked many with a maximum 8 ft. height and the 2018 continued the chaos with a limit that appeared to go down further down.  Finally, in the 2021 edition, the post sizing table is all grown up and ready to accurately size deck support posts based on the deck design.  Other new provisions were added for post connections, but they aren’t as precise as the code so specifically presents them to be.  Learn the details and the design behind the new 2021 post provisions.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, attendees will…

  • Understand the evolution of the post sizing table from the 2015 IRC to the 2021 IRC.
  • Be comfortable utilizing and approving the 2021 IRC for post sizing as an alternative to previous editions.
  • Realize how the 2021 IRC can be used to size posts for two-level decks and porch roofs.
  • Discover the reality behind the specific post-to-beam provisions in the IRC.

Length: 90 minutes.
