    Default Another swaying deck

    About 8 yrs. old, ledger board is only nailed to house but not pulling away. 2x8 joists on 10.5 in. centers on 4x8 beams resting on 4x4 posts. The railings were also shaky, posts were 3 2x nailed together. Deck boards were glued and finish nailed to the joists so they were coming loose. Will try to reuse the mahogany. As you can see the joists were only toe-nailed to the beams on the long runs so they flex a lot. Was going to install blocking and double up the perimeter and also lag screw the ledger board. Any other suggestions?
