Besides, can I use 2x6 for ledger board?
2x6 joists should only be used on ground-level decks that do not require, and will not provide for, any guards. Joist hangers are used to attach the ends of joists to the face of a beam or a ledger board. If you identify a crown in the board, you should always install it upwards.
Likewise, how far can a 2x10 span without support? When supporting joists that span 12 feet with no overhang beyond the beam, a double ply beam can span in feet a value equal to its depth in inches. A double 2x12 beam can span 12 feet; a (2) 2x10 can span 10 feet and so on.
Keeping this in view, can a ledger board be two pieces?
You are required to have a minimum of two of those assemblies on your ledger, and your inspector could well consider a two-piece ledger as actually being two ledgers.
How far can a 2x6 Rafter span without support?
The table states that 2 X 6 rafters spaced 16 inches on center (o.c) can span a maximum distance of 13 feet 5 inches. Another option are 2 X 8 rafters spaced 24 inches o.c.
