Real Reviews From Homeowners


Dayton Riter


My family and I have been renovating our home for the last two years and have used many local companies. Deck Bros was hands down the best!

The quality of work, attention to detail and communication with my husband and I throughout the project was second to none.

The workers were meticulous and did beautiful work on my back deck and front porch.

Luan (the owner) was very responsive with our questions and was always checking in on the project to ensure we were satisfied. Highly recommend using Deck Bros!


Debra Whisonant


Luan and his crew are first-rate deck builders.

They refurbished and re-supported our old deck and added on additional new decking in a week after all was approved by the city of La Vista.

The only problems were with the composite supplier which Luan handled quickly.

Definitely recommend them if you are looking for a new deck or want to update an old one.

Hot Tub On Deck Care

A hot tub is a great addition to any deck, providing relaxation and enjoyment for you and your family.

However, to ensure your hot tub stays in good condition, proper maintenance and care of your deck are essential. Here are some tips and advice on maintaining your deck and hot tub.

Regular Cleaning

Cleaning your deck is essential to maintain its integrity and longevity.

A good rule of thumb is to sweep your deck daily to avoid the accumulation of dirt and debris that can cause staining or damage to the deck boards. You can also use a pressure washer to clean your deck.

However, be careful not to use too much pressure as it can damage the deck surface.

Cleaning your hot tub is equally important, especially if you use it frequently. Drain and refill your hot tub at least every 3-4 months to keep it clean and hygienic.

Protecting Your Deck from the Weight of the Hot Tub

A filled hot tub can be heavy, with an average weight of 5,000 pounds. This weight can cause damage to your deck boards, especially if it is not designed to support the hot tub’s weight.

Consult with a professional to ensure that your deck can handle the hot tub’s weight. Drop us a line; we’re happy to help with that!

Protecting Your Deck Surface from Chemicals

Chemicals used to treat hot tub water can damage your deck surface. Ensure that the chemicals used in your hot tub are compatible with the deck surface. You can use a hot tub pad to protect your deck surface from the chemicals.

We offer ongoing maintenance and repair services to ensure your deck remains in excellent condition.

The Most Common Questions About Installing A Hot Tub On Deck

Yes, you can put a hot tub on a deck, but you need to make sure that the deck can support the weight of the hot tub. Most decks can handle a hot tub if the deck is built to code and has enough structural support, such as a reinforced frame and foundation.
The weight a deck can support varies depending on the deck’s size, material, and support system. Typically, a deck can support 50 pounds per square foot of dead load, which includes the weight of the empty hot tub, plus 20 PSF of live load, which includes the weight of people and water in the hot tub.
Yes, you need to reinforce your deck for a hot tub to ensure it can support the weight. This may involve adding additional beams, posts, or footings to the existing deck, or even building a separate structure to support the hot tub.
You can put an inflatable hot tub on your deck, but you still need to ensure the deck can support the weight. Inflatable hot tubs are lighter than traditional hot tubs, but they still weigh several hundred pounds when filled with water and people.
You need a strong support system for a hot tub, such as concrete deck footings or pressure-treated wood posts. The support system should handle the hot tub’s weight, plus any additional weight from people and water.
It’s not necessary to have a concrete pad for a hot tub on a deck, but it can provide additional support and stability. A concrete pad also makes it easier to level the hot tub and prevents it from sinking into the ground over time.
Yes, a hot tub can damage your deck if it’s not properly installed or supported. The weight of the hot tub can cause the deck to sag or even collapse, and the moisture from the hot tub can cause wood rot or decay over time.
To ensure your deck is safe for a hot tub, it’s important to consult with a professional contractor or engineer who can evaluate your deck’s structural integrity and recommend any necessary reinforcements or modifications. Or just send us a quick message because we’re happy to help with that!
