How old is your deck? Is it ready for redecking or a complete deck replacement? When it comes to aging, sagging, or crumbling decks, there are a few options. Many times the support structure is intact, and in great shape, this would simply require redecking. Redecking is when the surface decking boards are removed and replaced with new. If the support structure below is not structurally sound, your deck might need a complete replacement.
This South Ogden family experienced both when they called us to have their aging deck redone. The initial plan for redecking and a porch ceiling replacement was adjusted once our team discovered the structural framing under the open portion of the deck was too deteriorated to keep.
The stunning results speak for themselves, but the journey is just as important as the destination:
We replaced the structure and framing of the open deck area while keeping the existing deck framing underneath the covered porch. We added Trex RainEscape to create a dry patio space underneath the deck for easy enjoyment outside of the walk-out basement.
Next, we installed TimberTech Tropical low-maintenance decking in the Antigua Palm color, a neutral, timeless natural brown that accentuates their home’s exterior palette.
Lastly, we replaced the porch ceiling and reinstalled the homeowners’ beloved custom-made steel railing.
Deck Replacements Offer Big Opportunities
When it comes to deck replacements or redecking, there are more benefits than just having a safe, great looking deck to enjoy. In the case of this South Ogden home, the choice for composite decking by TimberTech gave the homeowners a splinter free outdoor living space they will never have to stain or seal.
TimberTech offers a 30-year warranty, meaning this deck will not need redecking or replacement for many many years. While the deck boards were off, we were able to add the benefit of a dry below-deck patio. And when we installed the TimberTech Tropical decking boards, we chose a diagonal pattern that gave the space an up-to-date design for that all important stylistic refresh.
With so many options for today’s decks, a needed deck replacement or redecking is an opportunity to improve the aesthetics and function.
