Hopefully I wasn t misunderstood. The bracing does need to be longer like splinter stated…and use lag bolts. I agree with grandpa also about the washers. That screw looks like a good one joey, but it wouldn t be a good one for this application.

Thanks for the backup REO That whole line was in fact developed for exterior decking situations.n They are all rated and tested for code. They make a GREAT thru bolt as well. As long as 3 4X members without predrilling, and without getting out the rachet!! I just finished rebuilding and stabilizing a 20,000 square foot cedar deck. The whole line is exceptional in every way.
