San Diego Deck Builders Discuss the Signs That Indicate a Deck Needs a Repair

June 30, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - San Diego deck builders, Best Rate Repair, want their customers to know the signs that indicate it may be time to get a deck repaired. They say that periodic deck repairs are necessary to keep a deck structurally sound, help it stay looking good, and most importantly keep it safe to use. Bets Rate Repair is a company that specializes in expert deck repair, so they are familiar with the many problems that impact decks and need to be corrected right away. At the very least, those at the company advise homeowners to get their deck inspected right away if they have concerns about any problems they are currently experiencing with their decks.

Jack, a spokesperson for Best Rate Repair, added, “Most people are under the assumption that because their deck is made of pressure-treated wood or natural hardwoods that it's pretty much impervious to having problems. This entirely not true. All types of wood decks need to have periodic maintenance done on them such as painting or staining them to help preserve the wood. Even synthetic decks are not problem-free and need to be repaired from time to time. A deck is also something you never want to put off getting repaired if it needs it. This is especially true if the problem someone is experiencing impacts a deck's structural integrity and safety.”

He went on to say that some of the signs that indicate a deck needs to be repaired include boards that are rotting (soft) or have developed a significant number of deep cracks. Boards warping at the ends or throughout the length of them also cause structural concerns and can be a tripping hazard that makes a deck unsafe. Jack says that pressure-treated wood is even prone to warping over time. The company spokesperson added that another big area of concern with decks is corrosion of the nails, joist support plates, and other fasteners that help keep a deck together. That’s because if too many of these become overly corroded and give way it will make a deck unsafe to use.

According to Jack, the best way to be sure if a deck needs to be repaired or not is to call a deck professional like them to come and take a look at it. He added that they even perform deck inspections for free. When Best Rate Repair inspects a deck, an experienced company tech will look for such things as excessive warping or cracking in floorboards, railing sturdiness problems, and the corrosion of nail heads and other fasteners. He says they will even take a good look at the supports underneath to make sure they are still firmly embedded and are not showing signs of such concerns as termite or other bug infestations.

Jack from Best Rate Repair also informed that there are times that whole deck replacement may be a better solution than deck repair. This includes older decks that are showing signs of excessive rotting or cracking in many pieces of wood. Problems with railings and erosion around supports are also a big concern and are signs that maybe it’s time to replace an entire deck instead of attempting to repair it. According to Jack, if deck repair bills are starting to add up, then whole deck replacement might actually be the less expensive alternative too. He also reminded that a customer having to replace a deck is not always a bad thing. The company spokesperson says that this is especially true for those that moved into a house with an existing deck already in place. They now will have the opportunity to let the experts at Best Rate Repair design and build a new deck for them that incorporates the features into it that best suit a homeowner’s needs. Jack says this can make any deck even more enjoyable to own.

For those that have concerns about possibly needing a deck repair, Jack encourages them to get in touch with Best Rate Repair by phone, email, or by filling out the contact form on their website.

Ukrainian leader felt Trump pressure before taking office

Jul 11, 2020

KYIV, Ukraine — More than two months before the phone call that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Ukraine's newly elected leader was already worried about pressure from the U.S. president to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Volodymyr Zelenskiy gathered a small group of advisers on May 7 in Kyiv for a meeting that was supposed to be about his nation's energy needs. Instead, the group spent most of the three-hour discussion talking about how to navigate the insistence from Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for a probe and how to avoid becoming entangled in...

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

Jul 11, 2020

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

The Latest: British govt insists there is Brexit progress

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 10 a.m. The British government says talks with the European Union are making progress, despite the lack of a breakthrough overnight.

But both sides say gaps remain over plans for maintaining an open...

Bulgarian prime minister condemns soccer racism

Jul 11, 2020

SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov condemned the racist behavior of his country's soccer fans on Tuesday, a day after the national team played England in a European Championship qualifying match. Local fans made Nazi salutes and directed monkey noises at the black players on England's national team. England won 6-0, but the match was halted twice in an effort to stop the abuse. "It is unacceptable that Bulgaria, one of the most tolerant countries in the world where people of different ethnicities live in peace, to be associated with racism and xenophobia," Borissov wrote in a post...

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Jul 11, 2020

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....
