When do Decks need to be replaced?

Now that the snow is finally melting, how does your deck look?  Hopefully you didn’t shovel it with a metal tip, but if you did, it can be fixed!  Scratches that happen from metal shovel s can be sanded away.  Then the deck should be powerwashed and treated.  Provided you deck is approximately less than 15 years old, it can be restored and last you a few more years.

Yes we are in the deck building business, but we also know when a deck does not need to be replaced, as that can be a very expensive endeavor.  Many times we have been called out to replace a deck and informed the homeowner that the deck is safe, just needs some TLC.

If you are unsure as to the safety of your deck, or the restorations process that could possible bring your deck back to “life”, we recommend you research when it was built.  If you have any questions, please call us at 203-978-9050 and we will try to advise you the best course.
