Beyond Appendix M (Building a Better Deck)

This six-hour class teaches you how to build a safer and more durable deck. It also teaches you about dangerous conditions to look for before you remodel a deck. After this class, you will never look at a deck the same way again.

Residential Electrical for Contractors
