Decks, Porches, and Boardwalks in Flood Hazard Areas: Connections at or Below the Design Flood Elevation

Approximately 1 hour

Flood-prone areas are expanding in the US as storms worsen, floodplains expand, and sea levels rise. As a result, many decks and porches that were poorly built or were built without flood-resistant construction have been demolished, significantly damaged, or swept away. This course examines flood considerations and the concepts and details of flood-resistant deck and porch construction; provides detailed advice on using anchors, fasteners, and connectors for flood-resistant decks, porches, and boardwalks; and identifies the relevant terminology, codes, and standards that should be used when consulting experts and authorities and designing flood-resistant facilities.
