Safety is the most important factor for decks. Over time, decks become unstable due to use, strain, and structural erosion. Support beams eventually settle into the ground – which is not usually problematic – but gradual settling over a deck’s lifespan can cause strain in the support beams, slanting, or uneven decks. With enough time, your deck will collapse.
Knowing that your wobbly deck is now structurally sound is priceless for every homeowner’s peace of mind. Take action today to prevent a catastrophe to protect your family and guests.
In San Jose, you can expect your deck to degrade over time due to sunny days, humidity, rainfall, rotting, and moss growth. Wood-based decks eventually splinter and warp, making regular cleaning difficult; with enough time, a deck can become inhospitable.
