DECK MAINTENANCE IS VASTLY MISUNDERSTOOD

It’s important to look under your deck to ensure that fasteners, connectors, and joists are all in good shape. That includes making sure that the nails, bolts, screws, and other metal connector pieces aren’t rusted or otherwise compromised. But wait, it doesn’t end there.
