Spring is officially here, and that means more sunlight to enjoy outside. With that in mind, I made a comment to my loving husband. Our deck's wooden boards have started to show the effects of seasonal heat, rain, and snow through the years. To prevent further damage, I suggested that we replace the decayed boards now and consider switching to composite in the future. And with that, I was off to CrossFit. I was only gone for an hour, but upon my return, I was shocked to find my deck was no more! In only 60 minutes, my husband and father-in-law had removed the surface boards to discover there was deeper decay in the support beams. Sometimes, the real issue isn't visible on the surface. You have to tear away the top layer to find the underlying problem.
