I want to extend my deck out about 3 feet. Are there any issues that I need to be aware of? Is there a resource somewhere to guide me. I'm just a little reluctant to go ahead without checking with someone whose done it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Instead of adding 3 feet why not 4 feet? Boards come in 4 foot increments and unless you're buying 12 foot stock you'd be wasting material.

As far as scabbing on a section. There are no great revelations. Just make sure that you use sound building practices and quality material. Don't ever skimp or cut these corners.
