Exterior decks are an excellent investment and a smart decision. When the weather is nice, your deck can actually be one of the most relaxing places to spend time. Grilling, sunbathing, and entertaining are all good things to do on your deck, especially in the summer.
It is important to keep your deck in excellent shape since it offers so many benefits.

Weak posts are a problem that should be addressed immediately. Having them on your deck can be a serious safety hazard and could endanger you and your family. Even though many modern decks use 6 by 6 posts, it is imperative to regularly inspect them to make sure they are attached firmly to the deck. Likewise, you should check for rotten or rotting posts which can result from water damage or moisture accumulation. For replacement of damaged or decayed deck posts, be sure to contact us as soon as possible.
Damage Deck Boards
Deck boards are constantly exposed to moisture and rain, so you may notice a broken board sooner than you think. Because it is constantly moving, it may crack or become weaker due to the constant movement. For this reason, it’s a good idea to call deck replacement and repair professionals like us to repair or replace your deck. As a cost-effective solution, experts recommend replacing the entire board as opposed to repairing it. Installing a new board requires professional carpentry skills and tools, and you should not attempt it on your own.
Over time, your backyard deck may fade or discolor as the temperature changes, especially during the transition of seasons. The discoloration of deck boards can actually make your deck look outdated, and this is why you need to refinish it every few years. Our professionals can assist you with this job in order to ensure a good appearance.
Besides checking your boards regularly, you should also check your deck beams for water damage or cracks. The beams should be firmly fastened and should not sag. A slight defect in your deck beams can be dangerous, and you should contact us right away to fix the problem so that your deck is safe to use.
Additionally, most decks are built by inexperienced homeowners, which compromises their integrity. When you step on your backyard deck, you may notice that it has a weakness. The decks under the structure should be checked to make sure that the joist hangers, post connections, and ledger boards are all secure and complete. Whenever you are unsure about support or connections, please contact us right away to assess the situation.
