Post Need a deck

I just bought a new home and the deck needs replacing and adding. the current deck is off the sliders and slanted away from the home, plus its 17 feet short of the back door, (Mobile Home)

How do I remove the existing deck and build a new one??? Should the planks on the deck be one piece and is that better that two pieces???

Need a deck

wrweeman@aol.com,

Not sure what you mean by planks on the eck are one pc and is it better than 2 pcs? Have to explain this one to me.

You say that the deck needs to be replaced and added on and then you ask if you should remove the old and build a new one.

First, are the existing posts, deck boards in good condition or are they questionable?

I have attached links on the how-to and hopefully this will help.
