bolting ledger board to concrete foundation?

It's my frist time building a deck. Is is recommended that I bolt the ledger board to a concrete fondation? If, "No" why?.. and if, "yes" what suggestions do you have for doing so?

Check with your building department first to see if they allow this. A lot of them now do not allow a hard connection to the house.

Thumbs up ledger board connection

Prodigal, There is a new way of attaching the ledger Board to the foundation instead of the framing structure of the house. WWW.Hangrite.com The hanger eliminates flashing and most important it eliminates future rot. It carries the ledger at a spaced distance away from the house. It may help, good luck
