I have a couple of questions.
I have gotten tradepersons to install new deck railing back in Dec 2018. So it is about 2.5 years old.
However I can already see some rust sipping out to the surface. One of the veridical wood plank is also bending.
Is it an indication of poor workmanship or material? I just want to understand if it can be totally avoidable in the first place, so I will not repeat the same mistake next time. Not to assign blame.
If I want to rectify the situation, what can I do? For the rust mark, I am planning to apply some outdoor paint. Is it enough?
