I need four timber posts repaired at the front of my house. The posts are holding up a timber deck and a small portion of the roof. One is supporting the end span of the main ridge beam. The posts are cast into concrete piles at the base but the soil level has been raised too high, causing rot at the base of the posts.
Ideally the posts would be temporarily propped allowing them to be cut off at the base where the rot has occurred. A Bowmac post bracket could then be fixed to the post and then concrete poured up to ground level (i.e. increasing the height of the existing footing).
