Charlotte Home Inspection Shows Dangerous Deck

While on a recent Charlotte home Inspection, Home Inspection Carolina inspector Preston Sandlin noticed a dangerous deck situation.  The deck did not have any ledger boards or hangers.  The joists were just toe nailed in so the only thing that was holding all the weight was the nail itself.  If there were a lot of people on this deck it could possibly fail.  All floor joists should have either hangers or orr ledger boards for support.
