I am attaching stairs to a deck coming perpendicular off of the joist. To attach the stair stringers to the deck I need to add a 2x6 below the joist so the stair stringer hanger can attach to it. I had seen these at home depot and wondered if I could attach the 2x6 to the 2x10 joist with a few of them, but they were not load rated.
What is the proper way to do this. I do not have two posts directly behind the stairs that I can attach it too.
My other option is to do the deck stairs flush with the top, but then I am not sure how I'll make the railings going down the stairs.
