Your roof deck or balcony needs just as much love, care, and attention

DeckTech, Inc. and our San Luis Obispo deck resurfacing team can help you with that!
4 Signs You Need Deck Resurfacing
Cracked or splintering boards - When it comes to your deck's stability, a defect in any one spot
can lead to an unbalanced deck and problems later down the line. If you're
seeing splinters or cracks in your deck's wooden boards then give
our deck resurfacing professionals a call.
Paint that's flaking or peeling - You can repaint your deck all you want, but if your deck wasn't properly
cleaned before painting then the paint might not stick as well as you'd think.
3.Visible rot - Always be sure to inspect your deck for rot, mold or mildew. Always make
sure to check where your columns touch the floor of the deck and if the
rot is substantial enough you may need a new deck.
4.It's faded or discolored - This fading or discoloration is natural over time as the weather, foot
traffic, and cleaning solutions can degrade your wood and bring about
this off-putting discoloration.
The Benefits of Deck Resurfacing
Resurfacing your deck offers many advantages, as it can make your deck
look and feel brand new again by restoring its vitality and beauty. Damage
to your deck surface can happen for many reasons—from weather and
natural elements, or simply due to aging. When the surface has worn thin,
it can be slippery and very dangerous to walk on. Below, our
San Luis Obispo deck contractors share some of the benefits that resurfacing can offer.
Some of these added benefits include:
- Provides protection from slipping or tripping
- Reflects heat, making it more comfortable to walk barefoot
- Offers a customized design based on your personal preference
You have the ability to choose the type of material (e.g.,
tile, stone, brick, concrete, etc.)
- Adds longevity to your deck for years to come
Can You Lay New Decking Over Old Decking?
After identifying the telltale signs a deck needs resurfacing, many homeowners
may wonder if new decking can be laid over old decking. The short answer
is yes. New decking can be placed over existing wood decking. There are
a couple of things to keep in mind, however. It’s important to make
sure the existing deck surface isn’t rotting and in need of replacement
as well as the age of the deck material. Why is this important? If the
existing deck surface is old and rotting it can directly affect the lifespan
of the new material. Be sure to have the experts at DechTech, Inc. inspect
the condition of your existing deck surface today!
How to Make Your Roof Deck Last Longer
Examining and monitoring the quality of your roof deck is a key component
to being a homeowner. Properly maintaining your roof deck will help you
avoid problems in the future, which can result in time-consuming and costly repairs.
Here are a few tips on how to lengthen the lifespan of your roof deck:
Routine Inspections. Performing regular maintenance checks on your roof deck allows you to
spot potential problem areas; by monitoring its quality, you have the
opportunity to take a proactive approach in fixing any issues. When giving
your roof a look, be sure to inspect any damaged spots. If you live in
a stormy area, be sure to check the quality of your roof deck after any
severe weather condition.
Beware of Nearby Tree Branches. If you notice any tree branches growing close to your roof, be sure to
trim them back. A simple gust of wind can cause tree branches to run back
and forth along the top of your deck, which can scratch and abrade away
the surface of your roof deck. Climbing vines, such as roses, should be
monitored for the same reason.
Clean Up Debris. Any debris that you notice accumulating on your roof deck should be gently
cleaned up and removed. It’s recommended that you use a leaf blower
or a soft bristle broom to remove dirt and leaves. The acidity formed
as the leaves and dirt rot can impact the lifespan of roof deck on which
it rests, and it can be difficult to inspect a roof with a layer of leaves
covering the surface.
