Deck Makeover for Early Fall Entertaining
Written by Todd Fratzel.
Makeover An Old Deck with Trex Decking
For less than a third the cost of a new deck you may be able to “makeover” your deck just in time for Labor Day weekend and early fall entertaining with some tips from eco-friendly Trex decking. Deck renovations are often cheaper, and a lot cooler, in the early fall than they are in the heat of summer.
Rather than doing a complete rebuild, homeowners can save money by retaining the existing sub-structure and simply replacing the deteriorating planks and railings. It’s a simple three-step process:
- Make sure the deck’s current sub-structure is sound and meets local codes.
- Remove the old decking, but leave the framework intact. Make any necessary repairs or adjustments.
- Install replacement deck boards to the existing framing. Add complimentary railing for a completely updated and customized appearance – and then accessorize with lighting, plants and outdoor furniture.
