Over time settling or movement of deck posts can occur. This can happen for different reasons requiring stabilization to maintain the integrity and safety of the structure.
This particular deck was skewed with a slanting staircase caused by the settling of the existing deck supports.
Hughes Construction Company installed two new footers to stabilize the structure. We also installed new support posts, updated the framing and shored up the staircase.
If you have questions regarding the structural integrity of your deck or potential hill side creep you should consult a structural engineer.
