I am having a deck installed and question how the posts are done.
The deck is from 2 to 5 feet above ground on a slope. The holes were dug, probably 5 feet deep near the house then about 4 feet at outer edge. Inspected by county.
They had started building the deck framing on temp supports waiting for inspection, then after they mounted the post to the frame so they were suspended in the holes. Maybe 2 to 4 inches above the dirt in the bottom. Then poured about a foot of cement in bottom and filled in with dirt.
I'm worried that the bottom of the posts shouldn't be sitting in the cement ?
I've been reading they should be on a gravel base, Do I need to worry ?
