Question


I have a 12 foot high deck that i want to put a hot tub spa on. My posts are 6x6's, double 2x8 rim joist, and 2x8 stringers. Can i simply double up the stringers or do i need to do more?

You havn't really told us much. How far apart are the 6X6 posts? How far apart are the 2X8 joists? What sort of footing are the posts sitting on? Is there cross bracing between the posts? What does your deck have on it for decking? Best bet might be to have a couple of different contractors look at it, and one of your local building inspectors.
