Good afternoon everyone.
New to the inspection industry. I’m currently taking the Deck Inspection course. Sorry if these questions are pretty basic.
Is there an easy way to tell pressure treated wood from non, if it’s already been painted or stained as is likely with decks, or is it not pertinent as I should be looking for rot either way?
In the section on Footings and Posts, it illustrates an adjustable connection post base. I’m not familiar with these at all. How common are they and what are the advantages over a standard fixed post base?
