How do you know if you need to replace deck supports?
Our deck is rotting, and I want to start replacing boards, but how do I know if it is still good underneath? Is there a way to tell?
Janis Luce on May 30, 2017Look for signs of rot on the joists underneath.Helpful Reply
Susan Bundrum Thomas on May 30, 2017When you call a company out to give you an estimate they will look at your joists. If they say yours need to be replaced have them show you why they say that (assuming they can show you rotting wood or some other cause)Helpful Reply
