Before you know it, spring will be here. As you look forward to another season of warm weather and outdoor activities, your attention will probably shift to your deck. After a winter of cold weather, ice, and snow, is it looking a little worse for wear? It could probably use a facelift, but how major of one—a simple reface or a full replacement? To help make your decision, you might want to consider these questions:
How Old Is Your Deck?
Was this your deck’s first winter, or has it faced decades of outdoor exposure? If it’s the former, your deck probably has plenty of good years left and simply needs a makeover. If it’s the latter, it might be time to knock it down and start from scratch.
Is There Any Damage?
If it’s just some fading or splintering, you can probably get away with refacing your deck. However, if the aging is paired with other ailments like broken boards and failing support beams, it’s probably safer and more cost-effective to replace the deck altogether.
Could You Use More Space?
While evaluating the condition of your deck, do you find yourself wishing it was just a bit wider? In a time when outdoor gatherings and social distancing are especially important, having a larger deck could be worth a rebuild.
