Repairing, resurfacing, restoring, and revitalizing your deck.

We specialize in restoring the beauty and functionality of your deck, ensuring that it continues to be a place of relaxation and enjoyment for years to come.

Decking Repairs

We have the expertise to handle any decking repair project, from addressing rotting or damaged boards to repairing loose railings and structural issues.

We thoroughly assess the condition of your deck, identify the underlying issues, and implement effective repair solutions to restore its structural integrity and safety.

Deck Resurfacing

In addition to repairs, we offer deck resurfacing services to breathe new life into your worn-out deck. Resurfacing is an excellent option when the deck’s structure is sound but the surface has become faded, splintered, or worn. 

Our resurfacing process involves:

Deck Cleaning

We thoroughly clean the deck surface, removing dirt, debris, and any existing coatings.


We address any underlying issues, such as loose boards or protruding nails, to ensure a smooth and secure surface.


We sand the deck surface to smooth out rough areas and prepare it for the new coating.

Deck Coating

We apply a high-quality deck coating that not only enhances the appearance but also provides protection against UV rays, moisture, and everyday wear and tear.

Not Sure Whether You Need to Repair Your Deck… or Replace Your Deck?

Figuring out whether your deck needs repairs or a complete replacement can be challenging. Variables include how old your deck is, the kinds of materials used, and what kind of maintenance has been done. 

To help you get started, we’ve put together a short guide on the signs that can lead you to a deck repair and the signs that should have you thinking about replacement.


Surface Damage – If your deck has minor issues like cracks, splinters, or stains on the surface, repairs can address these cosmetic problems and prevent them from worsening.

Loose or damaged Boards – If you notice boards that are loose, warped, or rotted, repairing or replacing them will restore the structural integrity of your deck.

Railing issues – Loose or wobbly railings pose a safety hazard. Repairs can fix these problems and ensure the safety of your deck.

Fading or peeling finish – If the deck’s coating is faded, peeling, or chipping, refinishing or reapplying a protective sealant will restore its appearance and protect it from further damage.

Mildew or mold growth – Regular deck cleaning and treatment can eliminate mildew and mold, preventing them from causing further damage to the wood.

Weathering – Over time, decks can show signs of wear due to exposure to the elements. Repairs and resurfacing can address weather-related damages and extend the deck’s lifespan.

Sagging or uneven surface – A sagging or uneven deck surface might indicate underlying structural issues that can be addressed through repairs.

Local damage – If the damage to your deck is localized and not extensive, repairing specific areas can be more cost-effective than a full replacement.

Sentimental value – If your deck holds sentimental value or is an integral part of your home’s history, repairing it allows you to preserve its character and charm.

Time constraints – If you need to restore your deck quickly and don’t have the time for a complete replacement, targeted repairs can be a practical solution.


Structural instability – If your deck is severely weakened, has major structural issues, or is unsafe, it’s best to opt for a full replacement to ensure the safety of occupants.

Extensive rot – When a significant portion of the deck’s framework, posts, or joists is affected by rot, a replacement is necessary to prevent collapse and further damage.

Insect infestation – If your deck is infested with termites or other wood-destroying insects, a replacement may be the only way to eradicate the problem and protect your home.

Widespread decay – When the majority of the deck’s boards show signs of decay, replacement becomes a more practical and cost-effective option.

Age and wear – If your deck is very old and has undergone numerous repairs over the years, a replacement might be more cost-effective in the long run.

Expanding your deck – If you want to expand your deck significantly, it may be more efficient to replace the entire structure instead of trying to integrate new and old sections.

Building code compliance – In some cases, older decks may not meet current building codes, making it necessary to replace the deck to ensure compliance and safety.

Aesthetic upgrade – If you desire a completely different design or material for your deck, replacement offers a fresh start to achieve your desired aesthetics.

Increased property value – A new, well-designed deck can add substantial value to your home, making a replacement a wise investment.

Long-term durability – A new deck built with high-quality materials will provide long-lasting performance and require less maintenance than an older deck.

Our experienced team is here to help you make the right decision. We’ll assess the condition of your deck and provide honest recommendations to ensure you get the best value for your investment.
