Your Preferred Fastening For Outboard Rims?


Hangers at the ledger, yep. But capping the joists that cantilever a foot or so past the support beam under, is the 2x rim, the outboard one, and one either goes with inverted hangers, thus no visible fasteners, or something else.

What's your preference? Nails? Structural screws? If screws, which ones?

The rim isn't structural if you have a drop beam. However in the bays that carry the guardrail posts it is structural. Therefore it should be fastened at each joist to rim connection on both sides of the guard posts. We use Simpson DTT2Z
