 This mid 90's constructed hot tub had seen better days: Non functional, un level and just plain old. The homeowner had a problem.
  Spa Tec has the ability to renovate the unit for about one half the cost of replacing it, or remove it and rebuild the deck with "No hot tub anymore" was on the table.
  With the homeowners consent the job at hand was started and completed with in 30 days which includes a couple weeks lead time for orders to arrive. It turned out great.

Remove all wood skirting, re level vessel and surrounding deck structure with new support posts, replace skirting with Trex transcend brand composite decking in their "Lava rock" color which was chosen by the homeowner.

Spa cover lifts are a must have. Benefits include: ease of operation and the biggest factor is any water inside the cover completely drains out for long cover life.

  Some repair jobs are just inspirational to me. I always appreciate how beautiful Michigan is. However, this would be a top ten for me, relaxing and admiring Lake Michigan while soaking in a perfect running 100 plus degree Jacuzzi with a glass of wine and an approaching sunset.
  Pictures never can completely capture the overall visual contentment I felt while working on this unit, let alone the sounds of cresting waves and wildlife songs in the back ground were like music to my ears.
  After the job was completed I walked a short distance to the edge of the dune grass seen in the photo and was surprised to see at least a 150' drop down to the sandy shoreline. Yes, the owner did have a  winding staircase to access the beach.

  Job details: Electronics replacement due to electrical surge caused by wind damage  to the homes power supply lines. Not only was the hot tub damaged but inside the house had major appliance, video and audio damage as well.
