We often get calls from clients who like the layout and size of their existing wood deck but hate the look of it in its current state. These decks tend to require a little more maintenance than just another coat of stain. The grain is often lifting, decking is cupping, spindles twist and warp, stairs have settled, and there are usually some loose boards that need to be fastened again–if this is the case with your current deck, you might want to consider a re-deck.

What is Redecking?

Redecking is an efficient way to restore a deck enjoying the benefits of a new deck without the full cost of a complete teardown and rebuild. Re-decking can involve removing your existing railings, decking, and stairs but keeping the structure. New decking, fascia, railings, and stairs are installed and you end up with a brand-new deck that is supported by your original frame.

Basic Requirements for Redecking:

Not every deck is a good candidate for re-decking. In some cases, the pros and cons may weigh in favor of a new custom deck. Here are a few basic requirements that will help determine if re-decking is an option for you.

  1. The structure and frame of your existing deck is in good condition
  2. We need to reasonably assume that the deck structure still has years of service life left
  3. You like the size, layout, and current location of your existing deck
  4. The deck has been flashed properly and is not causing any moisture issues to the building envelope
