What is your community’s policy regarding verification of how the ledger board for a deck is attached to the structure?

Since I don't have xray vision like the guy in Fairmont, I just look at the heads of the lag screws and that makes me happy. It's a similar process I use when I inspect the end nailing of the sole plate to the studs. I don't think it is an expectation of the public that we (a) are on site for every detail of construction or (b) would require that each fastener be removed so that we can determine if it is the proper size and has been properly installed. Sometimes you just have to trust the contractor or homeowner.
