Nothing lasts forever – not even your old deck. Many properties have decks that are well-weathered. Since they are mainly exposed to various elements, sometimes unforgiving ones, chances are they will need repairing or replacement. If your deck has harsh abrasions on the surface, chipped paint and materials or decay, then it’s time to call your local home improvement contractor. Discover some new ideas on how to update your deck and preserve its life for more celebrations and gatherings to come.
Shade Your Deck
Don’t let the blazing heat from the sun or drizzly weather hinder you from enjoying the comforts of your dream deck. Bring shade to your outdoor space, and freely embellish your new patio with creative themes and styles like a tropical tiki thatched roof or classic pergola with unique latticework.
Stiffen Wobbly Railings
How many times have you leaned against the deck railing? Did you know that this flexes the rim joist, making the deck posts and railings screwed to it feel wobbly. Place a blocking directly behind the post to stiffen it so you can revive the strength and durability of your deck.
Refinish the Surface
Even if you choose not to add ornamental features to your old deck, a good refinishing job can work wonders. The entire surface of the deck receives unending pressure and punishment from the outdoor elements 24/7. Clean, and wash away any flaking deck stain, and put on a long-lasting coat that can penetrate into the wood to avoid peeling.
Don’t wait until your old deck gives up on you. Jeff Woods Construction, a trusted and highly-experienced roofing company and residential builder, provides top-notch craftsmanship.
