How do you get a new deck without building a new deck from scratch? At Illinois Deck, we help clients get new decks the easy way with deck resurfacing. Deck resurfacing may be an ideal option for you if your deck framing still has a few good years left. Many homeowners are reluctant to tear down decks because they want to avoid the time, cost, and chaos involved even though they aren't happy with their existing decks. Let us show you why we're the best deck contractor for deck resurfacing near Chicago, Illinois.

When is deck resurfacing a good idea?

There are many reasons why you might choose to resurface a deck over starting from scratch. Consider deck resurfacing if:

• You have a relatively new deck that hasn't been properly maintained to preserve the integrity and appearance of its surface boards.
• You have railings and stairs on your deck that are in disrepair.
• You don't love the look of the materials or finishes used on the deck of a home you just purchased.

What is deck resurfacing exactly?

Deck resurfacing is a process that removes your old deck surface before refreshing your deck system with pressure-treated or composite wood. In addition to replacing deck boards, a resurfacing project can also replace any railings or stairs on your existing deck that you're unhappy with for any reason related to appearance, damage, or safety concerns. Resurfacing can be a great option if you'd like to update to composite decking or Trex without completely tearing your deck down. Your deck will essentially look like a completely new deck after the process is finished!

The first step to a deck resurfacing project is actually determining if resurfacing is the best option for your deck. Bring in Illinois Deck to help you explore your resurfacing options. We'll conduct an inspection of your existing deck before providing an accurate assessment of what's possible through resurfacing. There are some key points to consider when deciding if resurfacing is your best option for getting a deck that you're wild about.

Start by looking at the age of your deck. While many decks can last up to 25 years, replacing boards or rails on a deck that's getting close to turning 20 years old may not be the best use of your money. The state of your deck frame also plays a big role in determining if this is the best option for you. Your deck frame will need to be stable enough to support new decking without concerns. What's more, it's necessary for the frame to meet manufacturer specifications for installing new composite decking that you might choose for your deck update to ensure that your manufacturer warranty will hold up.

At Illinois Deck, we're always honest with our clients about the fact that deck resurfacing may not be the best investment in every scenario. However, we'll be more than happy to help you move forward with giving your deck a much-needed facelift if it's determined that resurfacing is a safe, effective option for enhancing your deck.
