    Hey,
    I have a deck I want to take up. Its been damaged due to the hot tub that was sat on it. It was put down with nails......!
    Do I use a crowbar to lift the boards up?

    I'd hammer the boards up from the underside.

    Set it on fire. Fire is good.

    use a long pry bar...once you get the first board up the rest will be easy. or fire....fire is good. Tannerite is fun too.

    If you're replacing the whole deck, a recip saw or even circular saw will work faster. Then pry the joists apart at their joints. But if not get a long pry bar as mentioned above. Harbour Freight has them decently priced.
