How to Replace Board in Deck with Invisible Fasteners?
Our almost four year old deck was constructed of kiln dried, planed, clear quality pine boards using tiger claw brand invisible fasteners. One-- and only one-- of the boards has split and is trying to twist. We need to replace it and do not want the original deck builder to do this. He had never used the fasteners and told me very frankly that if anything went wrong it couldn't be fixed. Is that true? I understand how the fasteners work, but isn't it possible to pull one board out and replace it with screws? Unfortunately this board is right in the middle if the deck. Has anyone had experience with replacing a board in a deck constructed this way? Thanks in advance for your replies and experience!
