New Deck or Redeck -- That is the Question

Is your deck showing signs of age or wear and tear?

If you answered yes, then redecking may be the answer to refresh your outdoor space and wooden floor board liftingtake it from dull to dazzling. Instead of tearing out your old deck and starting from scratch, redecking can modify your existing structure and save you time and money in the process.

deck with chairsThe first step in determining if your aging deck is a good candidate for redecking is to have it evaluated by a reputable Akron deck builder or contractor such as Archadeck of Akron. If the substructure (the base that the deck is built on) is in good shape, you may be able to save hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars through redecking, also referred to as resurfacing. The key elements we look at during a deck evaluation is the quality of the original substructure and how it has weathered or degraded over time. We also determine if any applicable building codes have changed since the deck was originally installed. If we do perform a redeck, we will make sure to comply with these new codes.

After a thorough inspection, we will have a detailed discussion with you about what you want out of your new deck. If you are hoping to replace pressure-treated pine planks with quality, low-maintenance synthetic decking products like AZEK or TimberTech, there are specific joist spacing requirements that must be met. Synthetics offer tremendous value in terms of longevity and ease of maintenance. However, we also offer wooden decking options for your redecking needs, too.

Archadeck of Akron  Low Maintenance Deck Buildersmay also be able to expand the square footage of your deck as part of your redecking project. This is possible by redecking the original footprint of your existing deck and extending out from there. We won’t have to install a whole new foundation. We will only need to install a foundation for the incremental extension. From here, you can then pick the decking materials, colors, features, and design options that best suit your needs. During the redecking process, you can make additional changes or add amenities. You can add integrated bench seating, upgrade or replace the railing, add a pergola or covered area for shade, or even change the direction and flow of the stairs.

Take a look at one of our most recent redecking projects in Canton, OH:

before and after redecking

For this redecking project (above), Archadeck of Akron replaced the wooden decking, stairs, skirting using low-maintenance TimberTech composite decking. We also replaced the deck’s existing wooden railing and pickets with low-maintenance materials.


We can redeck using wood, hardwoods or synthetic/composite materials. Many of our clients choose composites for their redecking projects because they have grown tired of routine deck maintenance. Synthetic materials can transform your Akron-area deck from a chore that needs tackling to a place to relax.
