On 07/12/2014, Our 501c3 Charity went to Menards and bought a Deck KIT... A KIT is supposed to have all the parts you need in it to build something....
Am I not correct????? This KIT was missing the very first pieces in the instructions , the J bolts and brackets to attach the footings to the concrete. They sent 18 foot boards and put 16 foot on the bill of lading. They sent post caps and not the sleeves they go on top of.
They did not provide enough top and bottom railing to do the stair railings. No 1 bys to go on top of the railing as is instructed in the instructions.
It had no 8 inch carriage bolts for the main support as stated to use in the instructions, straight nails not deck nails. All of this caused me to go $1000 over budget...
Reason of review: Not as described/ advertised.
Monetary Loss: $1500.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
