Steel Deck Framing
With the price of lumber and the fact that I never enjoy working with PT lumber I was wondering if it makes sense to build a second story deck frame out of steel.
Is anyone doing this? My local lumber yard has very little knowledge of the parts but can get a certain brand. They say nobody is doing it around here. Maybe it’s too expensive? Maybe nobody wants to learn a new product? Hard to know.
Does it make more sense from a green building perspective? Avoid the chemicals and the future landfill? I don’t know prices yet so that of course will be telling.
Any thoughts? Thanks
