Replace, Don't Rebuild
If your existing deck is old, shabby, and a maintenance nightmare, you don’t have to tear it all down and start over. Chances are that the structural parts are still in good shape. If so, you can simply remodel it with new decking, rails, and stairs, saving tons of money over the cost of a complete rebuild.
A Sound Structure
The number one thing we check before deciding to reuse the deck framework is whether the deck footings, posts and joists are structurally sound. Here are the main things you should examine when making the decision. We look at many things from the footings, to the wood condition to structural integrity to ensure your foundation is solid.
Our next step is in the replacement is to remove the existing railings and decking. Once everything has been removed we start installing the new decking and new rails. Once we have it all replaced we will apply 2 coats of color-enhanced sealant.
If you choose to replace your deck with DeckGuru, we use Trex composite decking materials. There are many different benefits to composite decking over wood, including its low maintenance upkeep and durability. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors and finishes so you can build an outdoor area that you love! Find out more about composite decking and the benefits in our blog post.
