Re-decking is the process of renovating a deck by using the existing substructure and replacing the decking boards, railing, and steps. Sometimes we re-deck to give the deck a facelift and other times it is a safety issue after years of wear and tear. Re-decking is only possible if a deck’s substructure is sound and up to code.
A re-decking project doesn’t have to mean only replacing the deck boards and railings as they were. When an aging deck needs the boards replaced, it is a good opportunity to update the design and function. Options include upgrading to composite decking, updating the railings, moving the stairs, or adding other accessories to enhance the use of your space.
For this Raleigh re-decking project, the homeowners wanted to update the look of their deck and add new features for their enjoyment.
To begin, we replaced all the aging decking boards with new pressure-treated pine. Then we updated the railings with a modern dark infill, added custom benches, and created a wide cascading staircase with built-in planters instead of handrails for design interest. With the addition of colorful flowers and deck lighting, this family’s back deck is transformed into a charming space to be enjoyed day or night.
Small changes to a deck design can make a big difference in appeal and functionality. If your aging deck needs revitalization, call the experts at Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham, and the Greater Triangle for a design consultation today: 919-972-1523. We look forward to working with you!
