My contractor installed a Trex deck of about 1,500 square feet for me
a few years ago. Now it is buckling. My son thinks it is doing that because
dirt from the oak tree is filling up the gaps between the boards. I have taken a blade and cleaned out the gaps in the boards but the deck is still wavy. Can we unscrew the boards and cut them to make them shorter and reinstall them?
I don't want to ask the contractor because he proved to be an idiot and I am
still trying to fix things he did around here.( ( My personal favorite, he
installed new, expensive wood doors and window without painting
the tops and bottoms.)
There is also a Trex deck at my ski condo and that is buckling, too.
Do all these decks buckle?
I would appreciate advice on what to do now.
