A client contacted me about updating a deck that was built over 15 years ago. The deck was built around a tree and now the tree was causing the frame to be moved as well as the deck planks were almost completely rotten. In addition the ground sloped away 2-3 feet from the deck and the last step was almost 18 inches tall, which is not up to standard codes.
They also wanted a new deck built at a secondary patio area where concrete blocks had become uneven over time. I have before pics of the patio but forgot to take before pics of the other deck as I rushed to demolish it.
