Deck Repair

Forked River NJ 08731 – G&C Home Improvements repaired an existing treated lumber deck and the structural house framing that it was attached to. The deck was attached to the house without proper flashing by the original deck builder. The improper construction process allowed moisture from rain and snow to reach the box joist and cause wood rot. G&C removed the siding and replaced the box joist, sill plate and plywood sheathing where required. Once the rotted members were replaced G&C attached a new treated ledger board with proper flashing to prevent moisture penetration.

 

G&C has been providing Forked River homeowner professional deck contractor services since 2003. Repairing an existing deck is often more difficult then building new. G&C matched the existing railing and deck height perfectly. Once cleaned and stained or allowed to weather naturally, this deck repair will be virtually impossible to detect.

 

This deck repair included the following work sequence;

 

REMOVE ROTTED DECK AREA /SIDING AND RIM JOIST AND SILL PLATE FROM HOUSE
JACKED UP THE HOUSE FROM CRAWL SPACE TO INSTALL NEW SILL PLATE AND NEW RIM JOIST
