Naperville Wooden Deck Builder

Create a Backyard Sanctuary with a Wooden Deck in your Naperville Home

Naperville offers the best of both worlds with historic homes from many eras mixed with modern ones. It is west of downtown Chicago and is an excellent place to unwind after a day in the city. You can take the Riverwalk or go out for a day with the family at the DuPage Children's Museum. Afterward, you can come home to spend time on your backyard deck. Wolf Spirit Deck is an experienced deck contractor who can help you design a new wooden deck or give your old one the refresh that it needs.

Advantages of Wooden Deck Material

When it comes to modern decks, you have two main choices. Many Naperville homeowners want to try a composite deck because of their durability, but some still prefer the traditional feel of a wooden deck. One of the main reasons why people choose a wooden deck is because it has a natural look. If you have an older home, a modern composite deck might clash with the architecture. Even though wooden decks do require some maintenance, much of it is easy to do and takes little time. You can choose from a wide range of hardwoods, softwoods, or have a designer parquet floor installed. The natural wood grain of teak is another popular choice. You can choose to stain it, paint it, or just apply a protective coating and let the natural wood shine through. The last reason people choose wooden decks is affordability. Wooden decks are often much less expensive than composite ones.

Wooden Deck Maintenance Naperville

The average lifespan of a wooden deck is 10-15 years. They can last much longer, even up to 20 years or more, with the proper upkeep and routine maintenance. Here are a few things you can do to help your wooden deck stay looking like new.

• Keep it clean and dirt-free with regular sweeping.
• Give it a professional power wash once a year.
• Keep the paint intact and repaint anything that is peeling.
• Be careful about anything that could scratch or gouge it.
• Reapply sealant every few years.
• Inspect the railings, steps, and structural components to make sure they are solid.

Maintaining your deck is not hard, but you also have the option of having a professional deck builder do it for you.

Wooden Deck Resurfacing Naperville

If your deck is sound but has seen the results of many years of use and weather, deck resurfacing might be an alternative to replacing it. Perhaps you inherited a deck from the previous owner that was not well-maintained, or you just want a new look. Deck resurfacing is an affordable alternative that can make your Naperville deck look new again. Deck resurfacing involves doing any minor repairs that it might need and stripping off the old paint or varnish. Any scratches or gouges are repaired, and any split boards are replaced. The entire surface is professionally sanded until it is smooth again. Then, a new paint or stain is applied. Many homeowners are surprised at what can be accomplished by resurfacing.
