wood ledgers on Arxx walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Neil:
 
The UBC code requires that all wood in contact with concrete or masonry which in turn is in direct contact or is within 18" of dirt must be pressure treated.   The IBC I'm not familiar with.  Structural ledgers for roofs or second floors are not effected.  See Section 2306.
