Do you know what one of the most popular additions to homes is? If you guessed decks, then you are correct. There are millions of decks built and repaired annually, but not all of them are up to what homeowners put them through. This is why it is important to have your deck built by someone that has the experience and knowledge needed to do a good job. While a deck might look sturdy when it is newly built, it might be an illusion that quickly is shattered the first time you have a group of people on the deck.
When building a deck, the added weight of a group of people needs to be taken into account, and so does any additional weight that is added. For example, many want to have a hot tub on their deck, but this can add thousands of pounds of weight. Without proper support, your deck could collapse under it.
