Your deck is looking really tired and worn; deck resurfacing is done in Falls Church VA, but is it the best option for your home? How do you know if you should resurface or rebuild?
First, let’s get this out of the way – if your deck is just greying and has a bit of algae or moss – it just needs a good cleaning, staining, and sealing.
However, if your deck has decay, protruding nails, warped, split, or loose boards, and maybe even some shifting – something needs to be done. Leaving it as is can be dangerous eyesore, one which will bring down your home’s value.
If, after an inspection, you learn that the bones of your deck have become unstable, it’s time to tear down and replace it. There’s a lot of time and money involved with a tear down and major deck construction.
Now, if that inspection reveals that your deck is stable, you have the option of resurfacing. Resurfacing is a great option that will give you the look of a new deck, using the solid bones of your old deck, for a fraction of the cost for a new deck. Resurfacing can be done in days, rather than the many weeks a deck teardown and rebuild would take.
Resurfacing can breathe new life into your old deck. You can swap out the type of materials – say from wood to low-maintenance/high-performance composite – and change the colors of materials. Railings can be upgraded to a more contemporary style.
If you’re looking to sell your home, deck resurfacing can definitely give your deck a new look, for the fraction of the price of building. And that new look can improve your home’s resale value.
