Backyard barbecues, parties, you trying to Riverdance that one time, hot summers, wet winters... You get the idea.
Routine maintenance can protect and enhance your deck, but we know that systematic, quality care doesn’t always get done like it should. So, the real question now is, can your deck be brought back to life with careful repair and refinishing, or is it time for a replacement?
Here a few key indicators to check for:
In short, the best way to assess the current condition of your deck is to carefully probe and inspect. And, the best way to do this is through the eyes of a trusted, experienced, deck expert. Similar to updating an interior space, like a kitchen, they can you help you decide whether your current deck needs only a minor facelift, a little refreshing, a few key updates and improvements, or if it’s time to start from scratch with something tailor-made for your needs and preferences.
And, as always, remember to invest in routine maintenance. It really will drastically extend the life of your deck, and will keep it looking its very best as well.
It’s time for a new deck when the damage and liabilities are just too extensive. If large-scale wood replacement is necessary to eliminate a rot problem, or there are design flaws that are causing premature decay, it’s best to replace your deck with one built by a deck design professional.
You also may have simply outgrown your deck, or your needs have evolved in such a way that the current design isn’t cutting it anymore. This means it’s time to revisit your options, exploring size, design, and features that you may never have before. It’s an exciting world out there, and decks have come a long, long way.
