Sometimes you just have to get up close to the damage.
I was called out to look at some wood decking that was showing signs of wood rot this week. While a lot can be seen from the deck top, often times we need to get up close to the underside. Water damage to the joists and deck boards needs to be looked at up close and not from the ground.
Many decks are well off the ground and a ladder is necessary to see it.
Since I was in this neighborhood in El Dorado Hills, I drove by, not knowing how high the deck was. I will need to return to give a better estimate of cost to repair.
The painted underside of the decking makes it even tougher to judge the extent.
