How do you know it is time to re-deck your existing dock or deck?
It’s important to know when it’s time to re-deck your existing dock or deck. Doing so will ensure your structure is safe and secure, as well as looking great. Knowing when to re-deck can be difficult, so here are a few key indicators that it’s time:
- Age: The age of the structure is a key indicator that it may be time for a re-deck. If the dock or deck is over 15 years old, it’s likely time to replace the boards. Over this time there may have been wear and tear to the boards, leading to potential safety issues.
- Material: Another indicator that it’s time to re-deck is the type of material used. If the dock or deck is made from wood, it’s likely this will need to be replaced sooner rather than later. Wood is much more susceptible to weathering and rotting and should be replaced as soon as possible.
- Damage: If there is any visible damage to the deck or dock, it’s time to replace it. Even if the damage looks minor, it’s best to replace it as soon as possible to ensure that the structure remains safe and secure.
