how do you join two boards for a long ledger

Recommended Posts

I'm building a deck with a 18' ledger board section but they are not selling 2x8 in 20' sections so I'm going to need to splice at the least a 16' and a smaller section. What is the code approved way to join two boards into one ledger board run? Is it a scarf joint or just a butt joint?
