This porch and steps were in need of repair. The deck boards had turned a very dark brown from grime and multiple layers of clear coat. In the first and second picture a portion of the decking can be seen. Also involved with this job was rebuilding the front steps. The old treads and risers were worn and dried out. Many of the treads had splitting which ran the entire length of the boards. Once the old boards were removed an other problem was discovered. The center stringers had begun to rot. In addition, the concrete pad had sunken. Using 2"x 6" pressured treated lumber the stringers were reinforced and made level.
Note: new blocking on center stringers and lower step.
The vertical blocking rests on the concrete pad. Each piece
was cut to level each step.
