Pool Deck Building: Cross Blocking & Hurricane Ties. In this installment I discuss why I cross block & why I'm installing the hurricane ties. The cross-blocking adds significant structural rigidity to the deck. So much so, I'm going to cross-block the long runs 1/2 way between beams before I weather seal the tops and begin decking. Thankfully the next few days is calling for sunshine so things should dry out nicely.
