I'd go to your local Building Department and ask them. You will probably need: post bases and caps for positive ties; more through-bolts at the ledger for withdrawal; a post or two at the F.P. cantilever as most jurisdictions require. They will have the answer to your questions to meet code and keep your family safe.

Product Category: Post/Column Caps

Number 6 on page two and four: http://www.ci.apple-valley.mn.us/Inspections/Building_Permits_and_Inspections/Informational_Handouts/deck_handout.pdf

With a permit you won't have to remove it when you sell, and you will be covered against any accidents by your Home-owner's Insurance.

Be safe, G
