If your deck is looking a little tired and worn out, the good news is that you might not need to replace it. Many times, it can be resurfaced and restored to be as good as new. This is a cost-effective alternative that will often allow you to get many more years of life from your old deck. Deck resurfacing adds value to the home and makes your outdoor space look as good as new.
If you have an old deck that has seen better days, one of the main questions that we get is whether it can be saved and resurfaced, or whether you have to start over with a new deck. Resurfacing is a possibility if the only thing wrong is that the wood is grey, the finish has flaked off, or there is a little bit of moss growing on the surface. If this is the case, we can usually easily clean and resurface your deck and bring it back to new.
If the wood has warped and shifted over time, or there are many splits, then we can often make necessary repairs and replace a few boards if the damage is not excessive. However, if your deck is a safety hazard, then it is time for a new one. This might not be the news that you wanted to hear, but you can start dreaming about the new possibilities and create something even better.
If you think that your deck can be resurfaced, we can have one of our team members come out and do an inspection. We will discuss your options with you and come up with a solution that is cost-effective and that will allow you to get the most enjoyment and value from your deck. You might be surprised at what a few aesthetic changes will do to your deck if it can be resurfaced.
Another question that many homeowners ask is whether they can resurface the deck themselves. The answer is that many times it is possible, but this is not always a good idea. Resurfacing a deck requires more than just removing the old stain or paint and applying new. If it is not done properly, and you do not have the right equipment, a DIY job will often not last an entire season. When you have it done by a professional, the resurfacing job will usually last for many years.
Resurfacing a deck is a multi-step process. We have the equipment and experience to do the job right and make sure that you are happy with your refurbished deck. We can also get the job done more quickly and get you back to enjoying those barbecues and time with family soon.
Many homeowners underestimate the amount of work and expense that it will take to resurface their deck by themselves until they get into the job. Experience counts, and when homeowners attempt a deck resurfacing job themselves, many times, they end up calling in a professional to redo the job right. Taking the DIY route can seem like a way to save money, but in the long run, it can end up costing you more. We have the equipment, experience, and knowledge to get the job done right the first time and to get it done quickly.
Resurfacing is an affordable option for many homeowners, and we offer competitive prices. If you are wondering whether you can resurface your old deck or whether it is time to consider a new one, give our team a call, and we will be happy to come out, take a look, and prepare a quote.
