Great article... can you expand it include warped face boards and other, more complex, deck problems?

Do you mean that the deck joists that support the deck floor and attach to the house are rotten?

I hired a handyman to repair /replace an outside stairwell leading to a rear deck. After ripping off tiles and floorboards, it exposed rotten 2x6 joists. These joists runs from the main house. How do we remove and replace these rotten parts and retain strenght and integrity of original joists ? Will metal brace be strong enough to join a continuing joists?
