Hi there,
I need a carpenter to replace 4-5 decking joists that have started to rot. The deck is about 4m wide so the joistss are approximately that length too.
Would like to get the joists replaced with treated pine so this problem doesn't happen again for quite a while.
The decking itself is still in alright condition, so you may be able to reuse it.

I'm looking for a qualified builder/carpenter only.

Hi Ji, unfortunately with a task like this, you will need to pull up most of the deck to get to joists. Can do for you no problem . Materials inc in offer. Cheers

Hi JJ, yes I'm qualified and have ABN with Insurance. I just wanted to ask though, the images show about 4 joists that need replacing due to damage. Can you confirm that is the case ? Cheers

Awesome. Yep it's about 4 joists that need replacing. Possibly a 5th one. But as far as we can tell it's just 4 at the moment.
No worries jj, happy to do this task for you.
Hi Jj we can probably just install new joists beside each one instead of pulling up the whole deck. Providing access under deck is adequate
Hi Jj O, can you show me what is behind the balustrading of the deck might be able to slide the beams in instead of pulling up the boards. Then it is just refixing the dropped boards
