Should You Restore Your Deck or Build a New Custom Deck?

Should you restore your deck or build a new custom deck

Your deck may have been one of the most valued and favored parts of your home, but after years of use, it's been through a lot, from normal wear and tear to the destructive forces of inclement weather, it may not be in the best condition. The wood stain might have eroded, the wood planks may be graying and discolored, or planks might start to come loose from the frame. However, just because your deck has seen better days doesn't mean you can't get it back into great shape.

Sometimes, restoring and repairing your deck can be beneficial, but in other cases, building a new custom deck might be a better option. At Renaissance Renovations, our Brighton remodeling contractors can help you determine the best course of action for your deck and provide you with excellent services.

Before you decide whether you should repair or replace your deck, consider these major deck problems that can mean that a new deck is your best option:

Underlying Structural Issues

The structure and frame of your Brighton home's deck are its most important features. If there are any major problems with these parts of your deck, you should probably have it replaced and not restored. If you're unsure whether you're deck's frame is structurally sound, call our professionals for a deck inspection.

If your deck's structure is in good condition, then restoring the surface features should be a great way to get your deck into excellent shape.

Wood Plank Problems

Wood planks will start to split or warp over time, and replacing wood planks that are in bad condition is a great way to improve the condition of your deck. If the repairs to your wood planks would be too extensive, adding a new custom deck to your home can be a much more beneficial project. Our Brighton remodeling contractors will work with you to decide on the best option for your home.
