I replaced my 32X32 top dock deck with 2x6x16 ft boards about 8 years ago with Yella Wood tags all over it at a cost of about $6,000 including labor. Last year the wood started breaking into pieces and I realize that all of it was rotted or rotting and very dangerous to walk on with the possibility of falling through. The sales rep came out this summer and at first told me it was due to poor air circulation underneath. However, there are thousands of docks on the lake that have 25 to 30 year old wood on them that never rotted?
They agreed to pay the cost to replace the wood $1,800 but no labor, steel nails, removal of old wood, dumping, or delivery charges or re-staining/sealing of the new wood. When it came time to collect the check I was asked to sign a legal document stating that I could not come back to them for any future wood problems that occurred anywhere on my property. I refused to sign it, and later to avoid small claims court, they agreed to limit the document to all problems related to the dock.
Now three months later, there has been several boards that have warped and needed to be replaced and now I a sticky white substance appearing on the boards that appear to be some form of sap seeping out of the boards. Not sure how to resolve this other than sand it off and retains/seal it again. I now wish I would have sued for all damages and used replacement wood from a different source. No recourse as I signed their agreement.
Beware and do not sign any legal documents if this happened to you.
