In many instances, new decks can take the load off the amount of reporting that's required. For years, deck builders in metro Atlanta Georgia have been making the same mistakes when it comes to methods of ledger board attachment. Mistakes that include missing flashing, incorrect attachment of ledger boards and direct attachment to cantilevered overhangs including bay windows.
Per code, the deck ledger should not be attached and supported by fasteners through brick veneer. Brick veneer is a wall cladding. It is not intended to support loads and it can crack. Instead, the deck attached to homes with brick veneer should be built as "free-standing" which means supported independent of the wall cladding.
A preview of a new construction home I will be inspecting this week provided some confidence in the workmanship of the sub-contractor. The ledger has continuous flashing (the exposed metal located above the ledger and below the deck board against the wall), metal joist hangers, diagonal bracing, and 6"x6" posts beneath the ledger boards. There will be a small recommendation, but it pertains to the attachment of the guard railing posts on the top side (not pictured).
