Maybe you added a deck to your home many years ago. Maybe you purchased a home that has a deck that was installed quite a few years back and you’re wondering how much more life you’ll get out of it before it needs to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up.
Either way, all deck owners in Denver, Colorado understand that these outdoor living spaces are built to last a long time, but they’re not designed to last forever.
At some point, you’ll need to talk to someone about deck replacement.
Below are just a few signs that you’ll want to contact a home renovation to talk about deck replacement services in Denver.
Top things to look for
First and foremost, you’ll need to be mindful of safety.
If your deck boards have started to splinter, or you’ve noticed that parts of your deck have started to sag or rot (especially around the base of the support posts, or in the places where your deck connects to your home), this should serve as a warning sign.
Most people don’t realize that deck rot, where your deck connects to your home, can remain hidden for years. If you suspect that the structural integrity of your deck is in jeopardy, this isn’t something you should ignore, because it can pose a significant safety hazard to your family, your children, your pets and your houseguests.
Second, if you start to notice that your railings are wobbly or loose, this is another sign that parts of your deck have start to rot. When boards become soft, they’ll become unstable. No one wants to have a loved one lean against a deck railing, only to have that railing give way.
Again, safety is of the utmost importance!
When you contact a home renovation company they’ll be able to tell you whether your deck can be repaired, or whether the repairs would be so extensive that it makes more sense to tear down what you have and rebuild completely.
