Hi there. I have an existing deck on my house. I want to put a hot tub on it. How can i find the weight capacity rating of my existing deck? Would you be able to help me figure that out.

You'll need an engineer for that

Hi Greg

The ability of your deck to support the hot tub will be based on the capacity of the hot tub ( weight factor of tub filled with water and patrons ) combined with the structure of the deck itself.

To do the calculations, we would need to see the actual deck and supports to determine exactly what is there.

Please provide your address, contact information, and tentative schedule for the site visit.
