Deck Post Cracks ❗ Resason for Concern❓




Every Year I look at hundreds of decks in the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky area , and I see the same thing on all of the support post. 

Vertical Cracks

Are they a reason for Concern? 

Many of these cracks can be gnarly looking wide and long. 

With that being said , myself and other deck experts agree. They are rarely dangerous, and even scarce to cause deck collapse. 

Deck post are wide and strong, intact the cracks called (checking) by industry professionals , are factored into the equation before your deck is even built. 

We know that these post are going to (check) or crack with the expansion and contraction phases of wood. That's why we use 4x4 and 6x6 and larger post . 

It's extremely common , and unless you see the following signs they cause no real concern:


Signs a Deck Post Crack needs repaired:


Get a long screwdriver or something similiar. - see if you can push it all the way through the crack and all the way through the post. If so , it may be time to have the crack looked at professionally.  

If you see a horizontal crack accompanying the vertical crack or running through it. It's time to call a pro . 

If you see bowing or bending in your post . 

These are all good indications that you need to get a professional out to look at your deck post and determine if danger exist.

  10. We realize that painting can be a very stressful experience especially when you have to get the interiors painted as well. Before we start painting your walls, we prepare them to make them smooth. We fill up the cracks and holes in the walls and even everything out before we apply the paint. After applying the paint, our painter Townsville applies high-quality finishes as well so the paint can last for a number of years.
