An Aging Macon Deck, Totally Renewed

Many understand the importance of hiring Archadeck of Central GA as their deck builder for today, but years from now could be where it really counts!

This wood deck was built in the 1990’s by Archadeck. When it came time for the deck to receive an update, these homeowners got in touch with us. The great thing about this aging deck, whose decking boards and railing were in need of replacing, is that the deck structure was still sound. This made what could have been a deck re-build, a deck facelift of sorts. So, what did we do to breathe new life into this deck?

Since the structural components of this Macon deck were in great shape, we were able to save the joists and post supports. These homeowners chose to re-deck with Fiberon Good Life decking in Bungalow, a multi-tonal wood-look finish. We replaced the entire deck stair, moving it slightly from its original position. The stair and deck railing were created using a pressure-treated wood frame and pickets, with a Fiberon decking top rail to match the decking and prevent splintering on the handrail.

On the upper deck, the homeowner considered adding a roof and screens to create a screened porch. However, we all decided instead, to add a low-maintenance metal shade canopy. This offers the homeowners the shade they so badly need on the upper deck, with cost savings over a screened porch conversion. Rather than adding gutters to the new canopy, which is rather far from the home, we were able to install rain chains to divert water away from the deck.
