Can I replace my deck boards with composite deck boards?

We often hear, “What if I want to remove my old wooden deck and replace it with a composite deck?”  We can help you with that.  You don’t always have to replace the entire deck when going this route.  We can remove the wooden deck flooring material, and check the health of the joists running underneath it.  If the joists look to be healthy enough, we can simply just install the composite deck material utilizing the existing joists saving time and money.  We look to find good solutions that will help save you money in the long run.  The price of lumber right now is rather high compared to years in the past.  Since the start of the pandemic, many lumber mills have had trouble producing enough lumber to keep up with demand, and that is driving the prices up for customers and deck builders Belleville IL.  This price inflation is making it more and more justifiable to spend the money on a composite deck.  The price of the composite deck has always been at least twice as much in years past, but now with the price of lumber being so high, the cost is very reasonable in comparison.  The composite deck material also holds up better to the weather and elements for longer periods of time.  You will also not have to worry about the regular maintenance that the wood deck requires.  These are many reasons why many of our customers have been choosing to build their new deck utilizing the composite deck material.  It is a good long term investment that will last for many years and outlive the life of the wood counterpart.

Let's Build Your Dreams!

 A deck builder Belleville IL team can help you design and build your deck for you soon after we give you the quote.  Maybe you have an existing deck that just needs some TLC.  We can also provide you with some deck restoration solutions by identifying some less expensive solutions compared to building a brand new deck.  Some decks just need to be pressure washed and stained to improve the appearance and life of the deck.  Pressure washing a deck is a great way to remove unwanted algae and organic material that can cause wood to decay faster.  Removing this with a pressure washer will not only improve the life expectancy of the wood, but it will also improve the appearance.  Organic matter can build up on the surface of the deck creating an off color tint that makes your deck look old and distasteful.  What if you don’t have a pressure washer?  Some people use a detergent along with a pressure nozzle on their garden hose to clean their deck.  In some instances it may be necessary to scrub with the detergent to remove the organic material depending on the amount built up over time.

Finishing your deck project

 We always suggest finding a stain that you prefer, and applying it to the deck soon after pressure washing to make sure that the wood is sealed and protected.  Don’t wait too long between pressure washing your deck and staining it.  You would not want more organic matter to absorb into the wood’s surface.  We usually suggest waiting no more than a couple of weeks after pressure washing to make sure that the wood is sealed properly to increase the life of your deck.  We are more than happy to help you restore your deck back to life while saving you the cost of replacing it!  In some cases, a deck can be too far gone to restore it, in which case we can help you decide how to go about replacing it.  Our deck builders Belleville IL contractors can work with you to find the best option for you and your family.

Deck Repair Services in Belleville IL

 Our deck builder Belleville IL can provide deck repair services as well.  If you have a deck that has been damaged we can come and make repairs to it.  Sometimes the job can be as simple as replacing a few boards that are damaged or rotting.  Once the new boards are in place we can then treat the entire deck with a water repellent product to help ensure it lasts longer.  Many of our customers prefer to pick out a type of stain that appeals to their exterior decorations.  We can only recommend different types of stains, but we have to make the customer aware of the different products available to them depending on whether they are on the Illinois side or the Missouri side of the river.  Staining a deck will help to improve the life of the wood on the deck.  If you are going with a composite decking material, then none of this is necessary.  

     Most of the wood damage that we find is a result of water accumulation over time that can cause the wood beneath it to rot and decay.  Water damage is the most common issue we find with older decks.  Most people do not realize how damaging water can be, but nonetheless, it is the cause of most of the wood damage we find.  Many of our customers found out the hard way with their old deck.  If you are not made aware of this by your deck builder Belleville IL allow us to help you correct the problem.  Allow us to do an assessment of your deck so we can determine the best course of action.  We are looking to provide you with the best and most affordable solution so you can have a deck that lasts you for years.

Deck Staining Options

If you notice in the picture above, the deck has a nice dark tint to the wood.  Some customers prefer to have a natural look to their wood and want to have a stain that will help protect their deck for many years.  This stain will not last forever, but it will help to protect the wood from weather and water damage.  If you are looking for professional Belleville IL deck installation look no further, for we are the deck contractors for you.  Many of our customers prefer to spend a little more on their deck to have the maintenance free  composite decking.  

Why is this maintenance free you ask?  Standard wood decking requires regular wood treatment to maintain the structural integrity of the deck.  Depending on the products used, you may need to treat your deck every few years to keep the wood from suffering water damage.  If the wood is not treated with water repelling sealant, it can absorb that water and overtime break down.  Make sure that you have one of our deck contractors inspect your deck for you to determine if you need to have a water repellent sealant applied to your decks St Louis.  If your deck is sitting under a large tree, you may want to have the tree trimmed so that leaves and debris will not cause any damage to your deck.  Be sure to contact our tree trimming Belleville IL team to help trim your trees!

Composite Decking Options

Many of you have chosen the route of composite decking and do not need to worry about the water repellant sealant.  Our Belleville IL deck installation team will show you the benefits of the composite decking first hand.  The composite decking material is made from plastic so it will not absorb water like the wood option will.  Many composite decking options are also slip resistant and provide relief from splinters.  The composite decking is more expensive up front, but it may just be the best investment you make for your new deck.  If you are in the Nebraska area and are looking to remodel your kitchen check out Kitchen Remodelers Lincoln NE.
