Deck Repair

"I was very satisfied with their customer service and knowledge. They ended up coming out multiple times, and turned a nasty weather beaten old ground level deck that was unsafe to walk on into something that is both safe to use and nice to look at. I'm glad I went with We Restore Decks."

Common Deck Problems

Nothing sets off a home and yard like a deck. These are wonderful additions to any home and make entertaining easy and enjoyable. This living space is continually exposed to the elements, blistering sun, pelting rain or hail, snow, even wind, can all cause damage to your beautiful deck.

With age, you may find that your deck needs repair, perhaps even the replacement of one or more posts. The good news here is that the professionals at We Restore Decks can repair your deck and have it looking as good as new in no time at all.

Some issues you may be experiencing include:

Deck Post Replacement

One of the most common types of repairs we see is the replacement of worn-out posts. Deck posts are the vertical parts of the deck’s structure that support the entire deck and keep it up off of the ground.
Wood that sits in or on the ground will eventually rot. Wood rot is a fungus that is attacking the wood and eventually eats the wood. Moisture helps the fungus by speeding up its growth. Because of this, structural deck posts set in the earth on footers will rot at the bottoms where the air meets the soil. Generally the soil is wet and therefore keeps the wood wet which feeds the fungus with the moisture it needs to thrive.
While some posts are set up on feet to breathe, most are set in the earth on top of the concrete below the surface. This means that after a certain period of time, the bases of these posts will rot and need replaced.

Replacing structural posts on an existing deck is not easy!
It is a dangerous operation that really should be left to the professionals to handle.
We Restore decks has the experience to handle structural and post replacements of all types. We guarantee our work and even offer a “settlement” warranty for structural repairs.
Have peace of mind when using your deck!

Replace or Repair Your Deck?

Sometimes, the cost of repairing a deck will cost nearly the same as replacing the entire deck.

Even if some parts of the deck are still structurally sound, if they are more than 10 years old, they will most likely need replacement shortly.
Of course, replacing several deck posts won’t even come close to the price of a new deck, but replacing beams and posts can become a costly endeavor that may come close to the price of a new deck.
Our deck experts will be happy to do a full inspection of your deck and show you where repairs are needed. Our quote will show you the price difference between repairing your deck or replacing the deck, so you can make a more informed decision.
