Deck Resurfacing

We specialize in turning ordinary decks into extraordinary outdoor living spaces. Often, an essential step in this process is resurfacing the decking. Deck resurfacing typically involves replacing old wooden deck boards and deck railings with new ones. The new surface gives your deck a fresh, updated look and strengthens it against the elements.

Materials for Deck Resurfacing Project

When our deck builders work on a resurfacing project, we usually replace wood with composite materials. Composite decking manufacturers create their innovative materials from recycled wood fibers and plastics, giving them a wood-like appearance that is more durable than wood.

We recommend replacing your old decking boards with Trex composite decking at Mitchell Construction. We consider Trex a superior wood alternative.

Why We Recommend Trex Decking

If you are resurfacing a wooden deck, you know maintaining natural wood decking is labor-intensive. It requires regular painting, staining, or sealing to combat issues like rotting, splitting, and splintering. The upkeep required for natural wood is time-consuming and costly. Plus, the risk of insect infestations, such as termites, can lead to significant structural damage. For these reasons, when we are on a deck resurface or deck remodel project, we do not recommend using wood deck boards.

We prefer Trex composite decking. This product offers a hassle-free solution that is always ready for your enjoyment. With a 25-year guarantee, Trex composite decking requires minimal maintenance, only needing a light cleaning with soap and water. Additionally, Trex decking is environmentally friendly, being composed of 95% recycled materials. 

When you seek durability, quality, and the aesthetic appeal of natural wood, selecting a Trex composite product is the ideal choice.

While we resurface your deck, we can upgrade its style to match any aesthetic you have in mind. We will carefully inspect your deck and determine the best method for completing the job and whether it requires replacing only the surface decking or completely overhauling your existing structure. (If your deck’s structural integrity is compromised, your resurface project might turn into a deck renovation project.)

Once the new decking is in place, you’ll be amazed with your new backyard space.

Why Homeowners Choose to Remodel Their Decks

There are many reasons why people like you to remodel their decks. The technology, innovation, and design of decks have improved dramatically over the past couple of decades; it might be time for you to take a look and see if remodeling yours is a wise choice. Here are some of the reasons:

  • Enhancing Aesthetic Appeal: A deck is a prominent feature of a home’s exterior, and a fresh remodel can dramatically improve its appearance and the property’s overall look. Upgrading to modern materials, incorporating stylish design elements, or simply refreshing the existing structure can transform an outdated deck into a stunning outdoor space.
  • Improving Safety and Compliance: Over time, decks can become safety hazards due to wear and tear, weather damage, or outdated construction. Remodeling provides an opportunity to address these issues, ensuring the deck is safe, secure, and compliant with current building code requirements and regulations.
  • Updating Functionality: Homeowners’ needs and lifestyles change, and a deck remodel can adapt the space to new requirements. Whether expanding the area, adding privacy features, or incorporating outdoor kitchens, fire pits, or entertainment systems, a remodel can tailor the deck to fit the homeowner’s current lifestyle.
  • Improving Outdoor Living Space: Decks serve as a bridge between indoor and outdoor living spaces. Remodeling can enhance this connection, creating a comfortable, versatile area for relaxation, dining, and entertaining. Upgrades like better lighting, comfortable seating, or weather protection can make the deck more usable and enjoyable year-round.
  • Addressing Wear and Tear: Exposure to the elements can take a toll on a deck. Remodeling allows homeowners to repair damages, replace worn-out materials, and update the structure to ensure it remains durable, functional, and attractive for years.

Personalizing the Space: A remodel offers the chance to customize the deck to reflect the homeowners’ tastes, interests, and preferences. Personalization can make the deck a more enjoyable and meaningful space, whether it’s a particular color scheme, material choices, or design features.
