Have you looked at the post base on your deck lately?  On our current project we are giving a deck a face lift. We removed the old decking material and are installing Azek composite decking material.  We are also installing premium aluminum hand rails made by Westbury. The home owner had us install post bases to their current post. This is something home owners may want to consider for future deck projects.
The benefit to installing post bases is that it lift the post about an inch off the ground to prevent water damage to the post and rot. Having post bases installed will save you money in the long run. It will also extend the life of your deck. If you currently do not have post base installed and would like to have them installed contact CH Construction and let us help you out.
