Mot deck problems can be fixed with some TLC repair services. Besides, well maintained outdoor spaces enhance your home. Here are some tips for home owners who have a deck falling apart.
Common Deck Problems
Home owners notice a variety of weakness on their decks. These red flags should cause concern. They vary in severity from small issues to safety threatening problems. Unfortunately, some deck problems stand out as more visible than others. Below are a few common decking problems. These are arranged in order from minor to severe.
Mold and Mildew
A deck falling apart usually needs a total restoration. If you have a strong foundation, there is no need to build a new deck. Consider investing in professional deck repair. When your deck needs more than a fresh coat of stain, consult a deck specialist. Some approaches to cleaning the deck, such as power washing, actually harm the wood. A professional deck company has the experience and skills to safely and effectively restore your deck.
How it Works
Restoration starts with removing damaged layers of wood. Commercial grade sanding strips the boards of old stain, damage, and oxidized (grayish) layers. Next, technicians replace warped, bowed, and rotted boards with new ones. All other boards with cracks get repaired with a sealant. Finally, after another phase of sanding, you’ll see a smooth, clean surface. The last step involves sealing the deck to protect it from future damage.
