How to replace deck boards
I have some deck boards that have curled up on the end next to my swimming pool. I cannot easily remove the whole board because part of it is covered by a raised deck. About a foot from the end of the deck boards and underneath them are two 2x6 support boards (i don't know what the correct term is - maybe stringers or joists). They are about 4 inches apart. I was thinking I could use a reciprocating saw and cut the deck board off somewhere around the support boards and replace the damaged end. Is this the best way to handle this? If so, where would you cut - between the two 2X6s or on one side and attach a short 2X6 piece to the existing 2X6 to screw into or some other method?
I have pictures, but cannot see a way to post them to this message.
Thanks in advance. Larry
