    Well since you guys brought this topic back from the dead. As I expected, the deal fell through with the buyers. That house is/was going to be a really tough sell. My understanding was that the sales price was very fair, for all the damage, but lenders were going to have a big problem with it.

    I think that place is in need of a flip… Correctly done of course.

    I thought I would look back at the pics of this place and I found another one that should have been posted to show how good of shape this deck was in.

    Here is another one I didn’t get to repair. I guess they felt it could last another year

    Like I said “Your deck shouldn’t smile.”

    It does amaze me how bad some people let things get, and they won’t even think twice about having a party on the deck…

    Those are gruesome decks. Hard to imagine someone would let them go that far.

    Holy crap, I’d be afraid to walk out on that one. Don’t they realise how dangerous that truly is?

    You should carry around some pics of decks that have fallen down to show people what can happen

    This deck is approx. 22 years old. It kind of shows how some of our codes today are probably a little too strict.

    bingo. we did an addition/renovation a few years ago and they had us demo and reframe their deck. no plans, and the GC told us to just reframe it exactly how it was before. the existing deck was barely nailed together and had no hardware whatsoever. when we demoed it, it basically fell part like slow roasted shortribs. yet it stood for 30 years. so we re-framed it like it was before, but the right way with the proper amount of nails and hardware and blah blah blah. architect and engineer come by and say it’s no good and have us double up all the joists and all this overkill shit. unreal.

    Engineers make a living by having things overbuilt. Doesn’t cost them anything to say add more to it, and covers their butt because less can go wrong.

    We framed a warehouse last year and the engineer wanted 2×8 studs 12″ OC. Boss talked him into 16″ OC.

    I wouldn’t want to even touch that deck unless it was a complete demo of it and start fresh with a new one. Its unbelievable what some people try to get away with when building

    My understanding on the last painted deck that I posted, was that I didn’t get the job because I opted for a complete replacement and would not try to repair it.
