So you’ve decided to replace your deck…
If you’re stumbled upon this blog you’ve likely realized that it’s time to replace your deck. As we’ve mentioned in the past, even the best-constructed decks don’t last forever, which means at some point in your life, you’ll need to tear down what you have and hire a company to rebuild your deck from the ground up.
At the same time, you’re not looking forward to having workers on your property. When it comes to home renovations, they’re oftentimes loud, inconvenient and messy. Yes, you understand that you need to replace the deck on your Denver, CO home, but you’ve been procrastinating because you’re worried it’s going to be a huge inconvenience.
The good news is that when you work with an experienced contractor, the process will be much faster and a lot less painful that you might expect.
Deck replacement timelines
The first thing you’ll want to consider with regard to deck replacement timelines is the complexity of what you’re looking to build.
If you have a simple, outdoor deck that’s attached to the back, side or even front of your home, deck replacement may be complete in a few days.
On the other hand, if you’re looking to add screens, a ceiling, or you envision having a multi-level (or even two-story) deck, this will take additional time for all of the obvious reasons.
If your wife wants you to look into a larger, screen porch type project, that will have ceiling fans, electrical components and recess lighting, this will likely take about a week to build. If the construction is going to involve ladders or scaffolding, this will also increase the deck replacement timeline.
Your choice in decking materials can also play a role in how long it will take to replace your deck. For example, certain types of exotic hardwood, like ipe or teak, are more difficult (and time-consuming) to install. Composite decking can also require additional time, since these types of materials can be much heavier that woods like cedar and pine.
Will your deck require custom railings or doors? Do you want to replace your current deck with one that has intricate stairs? Will your new deck have components that will need to be welded? All of these things can add hours, if not days to the project timeline.
