Re: More Sub Standard Decks


Killer may be the strangest person I know of, but he seems to do very good work.

If his writing and composition skills were as good as his deck building he could be an English professor.

Or conversely, if his deck building skills were as good as his writing composition he would have been crushed to death by one of his decks long ago.



This is over-all complimentary.

Somehow I don't think I'd want to have my deck built by a fifth-grader. What disturbs me though, is grown professionals acting like one. :

Here's that awkward part where guys go from picking on your product to asking for jobs.

1000/day? 125 bucks an hour huh - and I thought my guys were well paid. Hope they don't get on CT and see that carpenters are making 125/hr these days. Good for those guys

Around pools your stepping off the edge, and don't want to peel the fascia.

On other kinds of decks:

Deck boards shrink and it looks better under the rail, than exposed on the inside of the deck next to a border board.
