This was a disaster waiting to happen.

The site foreman just got back and told me that so far he's dumped 7 TONS. So - roughly 14,000 pounds. Right? I could have two trucks on my deck. That is how heavy all that concrete was. This deck very easily could have pancaked to the ground.

I still have all the stuff from the last photo to dump.


  1. That's still only about 25 to 30 psf of concrete, which isn't quite as bad as I thought it was going to be so far ...

    My 90 psf guess probably means almost 26 tons, at least if I'm right about guessing the size of the deck.

    Of course, I still see concrete left to remove.

  2. It looks bigger in pictures. I can barely fit a sedan inside. It's a two car garage. But from the pictures it looks like a 3.

  3. That's about 50 psf of crap that's off your deck, given that adjustment.

    You probably still have over 5 1/2 tons to go. :-)
