Sometimes It’s Best To Start Fresh When Craving The Perfect Outdoor Living Space

This family home in The Colony inside Denton County, Texas, had a second-level balcony deck that needed some attention.

After meeting with the homeowners for their complimentary redesign consultation, it was decided that the best course of action for the long term was to reframe and redeck the structure.

The beauty of having a balcony deck is that the area under it becomes a protected enclave for an outdoor room with walls – a bonus outdoor living area, if you will.

When the family desires to catch some rays, it’s up the new spiral staircase or back down at the poolside for sunbathing.

After a sun-and-swim, they head under the new balcony deck for some appreciated UV protection and shade, while still enjoying refreshing breezes from the two open areas beneath the deck.

Enhanced Safety And Structural Integrity Can Now Be Enjoyed

Reframing and redecking this balcony deck not only addressed safety concerns and improves structural integrity, but it also transforms the space into a more aesthetically pleasing, functional, and valuable asset to this Texas home.

Over time, balcony decks may deteriorate due to exposure to the elements, leading to safety concerns. Reframing involves reinforcing the underlying structure, ensuring it can support the weight and withstand the stresses of regular use.

By refurbishing the deck with redecking, you can address any potential safety hazards, such as weak or rotting boards, loose railings, or unstable supports. This helps create a secure and stable environment for those using the balcony.

In doing so, for this redesign installation, we used low maintenance TimberTech Edge composite decking. TimberTech Edge composite decking is an excellent choice for redecking projects such as this as it offers a combination of low maintenance, durability, aesthetics, and environmental considerations.

Choosing composite decking over traditional wood contributes to reducing deforestation and the demand for new timber resources.

Looking toward the future, composite decking is engineered to be highly durable and long-lasting. It is resistant to moisture, rot, and insect damage, which are common issues associated with traditional wood decking. TimberTech Edge composite decking is specifically designed to withstand heavy foot traffic and the elements, ensuring its longevity.

Being virtually care-free, TimberTech Edge composite decking is designed to require minimal upkeep. Unlike traditional wood decking, it does not need to be stained, painted, or sealed regularly. And, it resists fading, staining, and mold growth, making it easier to clean and maintain its appearance over time.

Even better, redesigning the deck during the reframing process allows you to optimize the layout and maximize the available space. You can add features like built-in seating, storage solutions, or additional amenities to make the deck more functional and enjoyable for various activities.

Furthermore, by replacing old and worn-out materials with new ones, you increase the durability and lifespan of the balcony deck. Choosing high-quality decking materials, such as composite decking, can provide excellent resistance to moisture, insects, and UV rays, ensuring a longer-lasting deck.
