deck repair

haz5005fixApril 22, 2013

I have a few problems here, the facia board needs replacing,as very well noticed.But the initial problem is the top deck is concrete, and it doesn't have a" drip lip"
so this is the culprit that has caused all my problems.
a carpenter ,advised me to cut back the floor boards by one or 2 inches under the faulty board and then put my new board on there. But where or how do I put on a drip lip for the run off of the upper deck?
Does any one have any better idea? what kind of material should I use? it faces south, lots of wind rain, etc on the hill~~

If there is no way to correctly put in a lip and wrap the fascia board, then I'd go with a wood alternative such as PVC or some type of composite. Most brands can be painted.
Hopefully the ends of your joists aren't rotted.

I am not a contractor, but living the same nightmare! We had this jestimate for our decks from our contractor, but once they ripped off the boards, there was "paper" underneath. Between the rot and the carpenter bees/termites, we need a whole new deck x 5!! Five decks. Big money!!

Good luck with yours!
