sloping deck

Posted by Larry on April 8th, 2002 10:05 AM

The covered deck on my newly purchased home has a noticeable slant to one side. Seems as though the deck is sturdy, but the water dripping out of the gutters to the base of our house is a concern. It's hard to tell, but my guess is that the support beam in that corner is either rotting or wasn't set properly.

Does this sound right? We want to have someone look at it, but I want to get an idea beforehand so I'm not ripped off. Any idea of a very general estimate of repair for this? The deck is raised about 4 feet off the ground and is about 20' X 8'. Seems to slant maybe 1 1/2 feet from one side to the other. Thanks for any suggestions!
