Best Answer

A cantilever deck is a deck that is suspended by joists that stick out of the structure. The distance the deck sticks out of the structure is one-third the total length of the cantilever beams that enter the structure. Usually these beams are bolted to (or sistered) to the second story floor joists or the roof trusses. Onto these beams are attached the floorboards that make the surface of the deck. And onto those the railings are attached. Hope that helps :-)
