Piles or Cement Blocks?
(Saskatoon , Saskatchewan Canada)
What is the code in Canada for building a deck on a house in regards to piles or cement blocks? If the deck is not attached to the house, will cement blocks(pier style) be enough? If we attach the deck to the house, do we need piles and how deep do they need to be? The soil is sandy and rocks are about 1 - 2 feet down. This is a house at a lake.
