The 2015 IRC is Complete
NADRA
NADRA attended the Public Comment Hearings on October 4th, 2013 to serve and protect the decking industry in the development of the 2015 IRC. I’m happy to say that we did that job well, and have little to fear in the new provisions now decided. Here’s a review of the topics we spoke on.
RB6: Approved at first hearing and turned to disapproved at final hearing. Approved in the first hearing, this proposal would have removed the maximum 200 square foot area for low-­‐level decks to not require a permit, as well as allow them to be attached to houses. With deck codes so rapidly changing, this is not the time to reduce verification and put an economic gap between decks built correctly by professionals and those built by others.

Maintain your maintenance-free composite deck
The Chronicle Herald
Wooden decks require ongoing work if you want to maintain any kind of finish. That's a fact. Every new wood deck owner quickly discovers what it's like to spend a couple of days each year or two working on their hands and knees, staving off the relentless tendency for wood decks to look more and more like an old barn if left to the weather.

Fall a good time to add a deck
The Chronicle Herald
Lindsey Bunn writes: When we bought our house, we knew the deck would be among the first required fixes. In fact, we negotiated some cash back from the sellers to help cover the cost. Raising the height of the railings and reinforcing the posts has given us two safe summers on the deck, which is much more than we initially expected, but some of the floor boards and joists are going by the wayside now and it'll soon be time to take it all down and replace it with something sturdier for our family.

Choosing the right font for your brand
By Jessica Taylor
Whether you’re coming up with a new logo, business card, brochure or website, fonts can say a lot about you and your business. Typography helps create an experience for your audience before they have even read a word; it tells a story about you and your business. Recently, we've seen two large companies, Yahoo and Google, change their logos. But, unless you've studied the design of these two logos, it’s hard to tell the difference.
