I know this isn’t a handyman forum but I thought I’d drop this here to get some input from the more knowledgeable members. The stairs to my mother in laws deck have recently become quite springy. Crawled underneath the last time we were visiting to look and found this.
The landing is at the edge of the driveway which isn’t level so that doesn’t help, trex treads, and pvc risers. I’m muddling out a quick fix (read bandaid) that I can do on our next visit. The propper repair I imagine would be to pull the stairs off and reattach or rebuild them, but I’m no deck builder, and she won’t do anything till they fall apart. I’m thinking of adding a rim joist for them to butt against and that I can attach Simpson stringer connectors to.
What say the experts (besides hire a contractor…)
