I think, for many, there is a misconception that enhancing your outdoor living space has to be on a large scale in order to be effective. This is certainly not the case. Rebuilding or redecking an existing deck can rejuvenate your entire backyard and enhance the time you spend outdoors.
The option to redeck is great for those who want the total makeover experience without the stress and expense of a major renovation. A redeck, whether it is a partial or total project, still gives you a whole new deck, but it builds on what you already have.
Take for example our recent deck rebuild in Macon, GA:
These Macon, GA, homeowners had a wooden deck that was built by the previous homeowner. When they contacted Archadeck of Central Georgia, they only expressed an interest in replacing the floor of the deck. After a careful inspection, we deemed the deck was built incorrectly. This meant that half the deck needed to be rebuilt in order to meet code and considered safe. We were able to save the remaining half through the installation of new beams and posts without the need for demolition.
Granted, the new deck followed the lines of the old one, but jut look at what a huge aesthetic change it accomplished:
We used TimberTech Terrain decking in Brown Oak. We also removed the railing because code did not dictate railing was required. Since the deck is low-to-grade, having no railing give the deck an open and airy feel while providing unobstructed views.
If you are ready to breathe new life into your tired backyard deck and add years of outdoor living enjoyment, contact Archadeck of Central Georgia. You can reach us by phone at (478) 745 – 2000 or via email at [email protected].
