How to install a deck with a hot tub

Winter is coming, which means its finally winter hot tub season! If you already have a hot tub, well… we are all jealous, but if you are looking to purchase one, ensure you are preparing your deck. A deck that is compatible for a tub includes taking some steps to ensure the build is level and inline.

To begin, the most important step is to choose a hot tub, measure the dimensions precisely and send them off to the deck contractor. Now we can build the deck to accurately match the measurements of the tub. From here, our team will build the hot tub hole to perfectly fit the future installment of the tub.

The tricky part of this process is actually getting the tub into the deck. The best case scenario would be to hire a mover to install the tub perfectly in place, otherwise the tub might be damaged because of the overall weight. if you find yourself moving the tub alone place a few cylindrical pipes underneath to gently roll the tub into place. Finishing touches to the deck and tub are the last step.
