Decks are great additions to homes not only because they are enjoyable but also because they add value to your home. Decks are also one of best home improvement projects you can complete because you are likely to get 80% of your investment back at the time you sell your home. After about 10-15 years, however, decks begin to fail and need repairs.
If you have been noticing a few rotten boards or wobbly areas when you walk across you deck, it may be time to consider hiring a professional to evaluate the structural soundness of your deck. If you just need minor deck repair to replace a few boards, repairing your deck can be quick and easy but be wary of completing a DIY project without having your deck thoroughly examined. Repairing a few boards to only come back to additional problems can make an at home project last until what seems like forever.
Another benefit of hiring a professional to repair your deck is that they have access to discounted materials and also have an exceptional level of skill when completing the repair. Sometimes, home projects can result in an unpleasantly, multi-colored deck or mismatching wood. A professional is much more likely to be able to rematch wood color and style. Additionally, professionals are more aware of what products actually perform well, leaving you secure with your choice of products such as the finish.
Remember that improperly repaired structures can often lead to additional damages to the home and also create risk for inhabitants of the home. Some warning signs of an unsafe deck can be the following: rot, corrosion of connectors, loose or missing connections.
