From the inspection I noticed the joists are beginning to rot (which I understand is common with this kind of structure and age). It has been recommended that I remove the deck before the rot continues into the house.
Question: What would be the best way to replace this balcony if the joist are removed ?
I was thinking it would have to be a smaller balcony that uses brackets attached to the outside. Does anyone know of a manufacturer of such an item? Or suggestions.
