Support Bolts and Fasteners
Rust stains emanating from bolts and metal
fasteners on this wood planked balcony are not to be ignored.
Deteriorated fasteners on elevated wood decks or balconies require prompt

water spray. Be sure to carefully inspect all
structural supports and other metallic elements for corrosion defects.
