Emergency Covered Deck Repair

If you enjoy dealing with a old fashioned craftsman, you will enjoy JR. He is the true professional. If he says he will call you back, he does. He calls, when he is coming over. It is, what he quotes. And his work looks really, really fine. I have seen why this gentleman’s company is rated “A”.

Description of work:
I had a sudden failure of a center 4″x6″ center post supporting two 16 foot 6″x6″ cross beams holding up my covered deck. Going out in the morning, with my coffee, all I could do was stare at a couple of thousand pounds of 16’x 26′ wooden roof covering smiling at me — sagging in the middle as the center post was for some reason disappearing from the bottom up. To Angie’s List — called Jose Reyna of J R’s Custom Decks and JR took it from there. JR, with help, immediately came to the house to jack up the cross beams to make the upper structure secure and safe. That allowed him to inspect below the deck (very tiny space — and JR isn’t) for the source of the failure. Problem identified a solution was proposed and a specific time was given for the costing of the repairs. All were done exactly as promised. The concrete footing under the center support was improperly applied. The center part of the deck would need to be removed and a new concrete laid and a larger post support would be inserted. The 6″x6″ cross beams would leveled also be reinforced. Since the rafters are 2″x6″ and the covering is rolled tar and there are under-hanging ceiling fans, structural reinforcement became center to JR’s remedy. His solutions are meant to last a long time.
