There are few worse things to hear as a homeowner than the news that your monster deck is rotten and needs to be replaced. First, it’s a safety hazard and you can’t use it that way. Second, it’s a big ticket item to replace. And third, the home owner needs to figure out how to get rid of the old deck and what to do with all that rotten old wood before building a new one. This week’s blog covers a recent deck demolition by Green Coast Rubbish that made one homeowner’s life much easier.

The Challenge

Our homeowner client requested that we remove his 700 square foot deck due to rot issues. A carpenter was coming in to build a new deck so the old one had to go.
