You can enjoy outdoor living to its fullest when you have a sturdy and stylish deck in your backyard. But you’ll want to keep an eye on its condition–like most exterior components, the decking can sustain extensive damage from the elements, affecting both its aesthetics and structural integrity. Triangle Home Exteriors, one of the trusted siding contractors in the area, shares when a deck replacement makes perfect sense.
1. Serious damage to the material. The deck material usually displays the more obvious signs of damage. Wood decks, for example, may be warped and rotten, while vinyl decks may be worn and faded. It may be possible to just replace the individual boards when they’re broken and leave the rest untouched if they’re still intact. But when large sections of the deck already exhibit significant damage, the better solution is a replacement. This prevents the structure from being a huge safety risk.
2. Water damage to the posts. Check the base of the posts holding up the deck. Did you find any rot or water damage? Given how these posts serve as the support structure of the decking, you’ll want to make sure they’re secure and unbroken. Again, the issue of safety should come into play. When most of these posts are already rotting, turn to one of the area’s premier home exterior remodeling companies, Triangle Home Exteriors, for a high-quality deck replacement.
We offer a wide range of deck materials and finishes to suit your specific needs and match with any architectural style and décor. From attached single-level decks to multi-level and poolside complexes, we have you covered. Our trained and experienced will make sure this upgrade is completed in a timely and efficient manner, with zero potential for mistakes.
3. Ledger board is weakening. Once your decking is older than six years, have your local home improvement contractor inspect its overall condition. Do this even when your deck isn’t showing any signs of damage. One crucial area that should be checked promptly is the ledger board or the bit of the deck that connects to the rest of your home. When the ledger board has weakened and is already pulling away from your home, you should consider a deck replacement.
