In the second case, a homeowner was faced with a structural failure in her deck. She'd bought the home four years ago and for whatever reason, the previous owner didn't use the right materials during construction. Whether he didn't know to use treated pine or was just trying to save a few dollars, the result is the same: A lot of wasted effort and materials and a big headache for the next person.
I do my best to provide lasting solutions. There's a lot to know about building, more than meets the eye. I prefer to give you the right solution. And while that may require higher up-front costs, doing it right is better for everyone. It's important to treat people fairly, even if you will never meet them. We make the world a better place when we do the right thing.
