Is your deck aged from wear and tear, or become structurally compromised and unsafe? If so, redecking may be the answer to refresh your outdoor space from dull to dazzling. Instead of tearing out that deck and starting from scratch, redecking can modify your existing structure. If your decks’ substructure is structurally sound we can improve the existing footprint of your deck without the hassle of lengthy permitting processes. In most cases, the original structure, or “bones” of the structure can be used if the underlying footings and joists are in good shape. This can save you hundreds, or even thousands, making redecking both pleasing to the eye and the pocketbook.
Once your existing deck is deemed a good candidate for redecking, we will then work with you to help your choose the material that best fits your needs and budget. Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio has many decking choices to choose from. We can help you decide on a wood or synthetic decking material. Many homeowners; opt to redeck using PT (pressure treated wood) or even a hardwood such as Ipe, but, if you are tired of the endless maintenance required to preserve your deck, a composite material may be the best answer as they are easier to maintain and last longer than wood. Synthetic materials, such as composites, capstock and solid PVC are composed of materials that stabilize and protect it from UV damage. This combination of materials also has several advantages over most species of wood. The synthetic material is much less likely to crack or chip, and there is no evidence that termites will attack it. Another benefit is a synthetic will never have to be treated or stained. We use only the highest quality synthetics on the market, such as AZEK, Timbertech and Envisions.
- Composites give the ultimate flexibility when designing your deck. Are you tired of the same old square deck? With composites, you can sculpt your re-deck to a rounded shape giving your space a softer appeal. With this type of malleability you can unleash your imagination and modify your deck to fit your needs and lifestyle.
- When building a deck around water such as a pool or spa, some composite materials offer better slip resistance to ensure sure-footing and increase safety around your backyard water feature, thereby making this a top choice to use in place of wood.
- Unlike wood, composites do not retain heat, so in the summer they make a “cool” addition for those bare feet!
- Speaking of bare feet, with composite material there are no more splinters!
In many cases redecking gives you the option to extend your outdoor living area, so you may want to add other structural amenities such as integrated bench seating, upgrade or replace your existing railing, add a pergola or covered area for shade, or even change the direction and flow of the stairs–redecking makes the perfect time to do it all!
