Quick Cure for Warped Deck Boards

warped deck boards

When you’re installing 5/4 deck boards, they are often warped and need to be pulled into place prior to fastening. And pulling boards with one hand while fastening them with the other can really be tough. Make it easier on yourself by driving the flat end of your cat’s paw into the joist next to the 5/4. Pull the cat’s paw towards you to straighten warped deck boards with one hand while you screw off the board with the other.
