Deck Replacement

Replacing decks with dry rot is a big part of the work that they do. Through the 1980s, many hillside decks in Marin County were built without pressure treated piers since it wasn't required. Decks would be cantilevered with floor joists coming from the outside of the house. For this reason decks would only be 6 feet out since you could only cantilever so far. Piers weren't put down because the builders didn't want to pour the extra piers with the house foundation. So instead they used the normal floor joists that were untreated. The joists would then begin to rot and fall off. In this situation Clough Construction would come in and cut the joists off and then bolt a ledger to the side of the house, flash it and pour piers with posts and a beam up. If you have an old cantilevered deck that needs replacement, hire us and we will get the job done right.
