Wahoo Decks is proud to be sponsoring a seminar taking place on December 17, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM at The Housing Center in Tucker, GA, which will discuss the new code requirements of wood decks for 2014.

Topics include: The International Residential Code – 2006 edition, The Georgia Amendments to the 2006 IRC, Wood Decks – Chapter 3 by the Forest Products Society (A Georgia Amendment), and Prescriptive Deck Details – 2012 IRC Georgia Amendment (January 2014).
