If you have an old deck that has been battered by weather and time, you may wonder if you should tear it all down to start anew or if you could save time and money by simply resurfacing it. Only a genuine deck-building company offering you all the services related to decks will be able to expertly inspect your structure to see if resurfacing is possible.
Unlike most deck builders simply installing decks, Deck Guardian is one of the rare builders with a complete 360-degree expertise when it comes to decks, since we design and build them too.
What is resurfacing?
First of all, what is resurfacing? It is the replacement of the surface boards of your deck. It is basically giving it a facelift by replacing the visible parts.
In order to qualify for a resurfacing operation, your deck support structure (posts and frame) still has to be in great condition. It may happen that a post or a joist might need to be replaced because it is damaged, but that is not a big thing. However, if most of the structure needs to be replaced, then it is better to start anew. Of course, besides the good health of the components, our experts will make sure they comply with the current construction code. Even if your structure is sound, it will not be acceptable if it does not respect the current norms in place.
1. The first step
So, the first step in a resurfacing process is the inspection by our experts. They will inspect as much as they can while removing no surface board, to see if the overall structure is solid enough to last many more years with new boards on top of it.
2. The second step
The second step of the process is to remove the surface boards and proceed with a detailed inspection of the posts and joists that could not be properly inspected before. If needed, the damaged elements will be fixed or replaced. At this stage, it is possible to add or remove posts or joists to change the configuration of your deck. If we add posts, there will be some time required to let the cement cure before applying the surface boards in that area of your deck.
Once the support structure is totally safe, the new surface boards will be installed on the support structure.
Most owners do not realize that the new surface boards can be applied differently than those that were removed. For example, if your boards were initially installed with a 45-degree angle to the right, they can be installed heading to the left this time around, or straight. That is perfect to change the look of your deck at the same time you refresh it.
You can also change the material used for the surface boards. Even if your entire structure is made with wood, you can choose to apply composite boards on top of it. You would then have the benefits of a composite deck at a lower cost. Let our pros guide you in the material selection.
Resurfacing instead of tearing down and rebuilding will save you time and money (both in materials and labor time). So, contact our experts today to see if resurfacing is an option for your current deck.
