A Client asked us to remodel a deck on a Cabin she just bought. During the initial inspection we found that a sizable portion of the deck felt very flimsy to walk on. Upon further inspection we found out why it felt un-secure. Someone had added onto the deck and used closet support brackets to hold up a section of the deck 2 feet wide by 18 feet long.

The crazy part is that they used metal roofing screws (with heads smaller than the holes in the bracket) to hold it on. there was literally nothing really holding the brackets onto the support beam.

Funny find on deck remodel
