Deck Repair & Renovations in Franklin
Decks are generally pretty durable and capable of withstanding a lot of pressure from the weather, as well as people, but they can become damaged and dilapidated if they’re not looked after properly. These problems usually only occur after a long period of time, and there are steps that you can take to restore your deck back to full functionality. At Franklin Deck Services, we’re capable of taking care of any deck repair or deck renovation work that you require – and we know that you’ll be delighted with the quality of the results that we produce. There are a number of techniques that we can use to get your deck back in its optimal condition, which is best used largely comes down to the problems that are present. Read on below to get an insight into the repair and renovation services that we offer.
When you bring us in to look at your decking, and to assess and inspect the damage and deterioration, we’ll do our best to give you a clear idea of how much the work is going to cost you. This can vary a lot depending on the type of deck structure, the wood that is used, the size of the installation, and the difficulty of the work. There’s a reasonable chance that you’ll have more than one option available to you, so deciding which one to go with really comes down to you.
There are several different reasons that a deck might fall into a state of disrepair, and we’re equipped to handle each and every one of them. Board replacements are common requests for our deck repair experts, usually because the wood has become rotten for one reason or another. Faulty supports can crop up sometimes too, and we’re well-versed in overlaying and deck board flipping too. If you have a localized spot that needs a repair, we’ll explain what’s caused the issue before we begin to take steps to resolve it.
Deck resurfacing is a more substantial process than just a normal deck repair, so how exactly does it work? This is where we replace the deck boards, railings, and stairs on the existing deck frame and foundation. This might be because the damage to the boards has become so widespread and severe that a repair or refinishing intervention isn’t going to prove effective – but the foundations beneath are still in a good condition. This can also be a good option if you’re just not a fan of the materials that have been used on your deck.
Refinishing your deck is a good choice if the installation is still structurally sound and not irrevocably blemished, but it needs to be overhauled to give it a more attractive look. This process involves cleaning the installation, sanding it down to give it a new surface, and then staining the surface with a sealant and finish. This will give your deck a ‘like-new’ aesthetic, and can actually raise the valuation of your property like a new installation would.
