Split wood, rotting wood, loose or missing nails or screws
Loose or missing anchors where the porch attaches to a house or building
Missing, damaged or loose support beams and planking
Loose handrails or guardrails

The entire process takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Once construction begins and depending on the size of the project, actual construction typically takes 1-2 weeks.
What kind of Lumber is used?
