Simpson Strong-Tie Launches Video Series for Contractors

Simpson Strong-Tie has debuted the first episode of Build a Stronger Deck, an entertaining and educational YouTube video series that shows builders, deck contractors, and their homeowner customers how to easily build stronger, safer decks that last.

 

As summer temperatures rise, deck-building season typically hits high gear as homeowners turn to the outdoors for cookouts, relaxation, and family fun. Developed for pro contractors and homeowners thinking of building their dream deck, the Build a Stronger Deck video series guides viewers through the most important steps to building a safer and stronger deck from the ground up. 

 

The first episode dives into the available options and ideal solutions for stronger, safer post bases. The second video features deck ledger installation, with further episodes detailing construction tips for installing beams, joists, guard posts, stair stringers, and deck boards. Finally, a special fastener episode gives viewers expert advice on selecting the best anchors and fasteners to attach hangers, joists, and angles to deck ledgers and railings.

  

New episodes will air throughout the summer and are available for streaming on the Simpson Strong-Tie YouTube channel. To watch all available episodes, visit the online Simpson Strong-Tie Deck Center at www.strongtie.com/deckcenter.
