Archadeck is Your Go-To Expert for Redecking and Deck Extensions
Redecking is a cost-effective way to give your deck a fresh, new look without having to pay for replacing the entire deck structure. We call it “bringing old decks back to life.” Many homeowners are not aware of this service! If you have an aging deck that doesn’t look as good as it once did, redecking may be the answer. And if you want to expand the size of your deck, this is the time! We can easily include a deck extension in the plans while redecking.
There are two key points you need to know about redecking. First, not all decks are good candidates for redecking, so we will need to examine your deck before we can commit to redecking. The redecking process entails removing the deck’s surface, railings and stairs, replacing those elements with new materials. If your deck’s substructure is still sound and up to code, redecking saves you the materials and labor costs of building a new substructure. Second, you can choose either wood or low-maintenance composites for redecking, regardless of your original decking material.
Remodeling Your Existing Deck Seamlessly with Archadeck of Fort Wayne
Are you among the homeowners currently searching the internet for “deck remodeling fort wayne in”? As you might imagine, the term deck remodeling can mean different things to different people. In our experience, when homeowners ask for deck remodeling, they are usually referring to any of the following services:
- Adding more square footage to a deck’s footprint
- Changing stair placement
- Changing railing design
- Redecking with new wood or low-maintenance composite decking
Redecking is one form of deck remodeling, but it’s not the only one. Many homeowners love their deck but wish it was larger with room for separate dining and lounging areas. Or perhaps you have always felt like your existing deck stairs are in the wrong place. You wouldn’t be the first homeowner with that complaint, and it’s amazing the difference a better deck stair placement can make. Likewise, changing your deck railing alone can give the entire deck a new look and feel. Today’s thinner railings are low-maintenance and allow greater visibility, highly desirable if you live on the lake or have a spectacular view.
