Is your deck looking like it’s seen better days? It might be time to consider deck resurfacing. Read on for some information you need to know before you get started!
What’s the Difference Between Deck Restoring and Deck Resurfacing?
Although some people mistakenly use these terms interchangeably, these are different processes. Deck restoring typically involves the aesthetics of the deck – think new stains and protective coatings. It can also involve power washing your deck to remove dirt, bird droppings, and other grime. Deck resurfacing, on the other hand, is the process of actually replacing the floorboards, stairs and/or railings – literally providing a “new surface” on your existing deck frame. This is a more cost-effective solution than completely rebuilding an old deck, but as we'll explain shortly, it isn't always an option.
Improve the Safety of Your Deck
Deck resurfacing is an effective way to improve more than just the aesthetics of your deck - it can also improve its safety. Warped boards, loose or cracked stone or tiles, unsafe railings or stairs, and splintered wood can be hazardous and should be fixed promptly, even if the deck isn’t old.
If you are unsure whether you need deck resurfacing, we invite you to contact DeckTech, Inc. to request an inspection. We’ll take a look at the frame and determine whether it is in good enough condition that resurfacing is an option. If the frame is too old and in bad repair, it may make more financial sense to forego resurfacing and replace the entire deck. It is not a good investment to put a new surface on top of an old frame that is reaching the end of its usable life.
