Does My Deck Need to Be Refinished, Repaired, or Replaced?


Perhaps when you originally built your deck, you selected a company that designed your deck with questionable materials that haven’t stood the test of time.

When you built a deck for your family home years ago, it was a beautiful addition to your home’s exterior. Your deck brought forth memories filled with alfresco dining, lounging in your outdoor furniture during summer evenings, and fun experiences with your family. Perhaps when you initially built your deck, you selected a company that designed your deck with questionable materials that haven’t stood the test of time. Or, maybe your all-natural wood deck is looking a little bit worn compared to composite decks that are rot-resistant. Regardless, you might have a few questions about the restoration of your deck. Will you need your deck refinished, repaired, or replaced altogether? Fisher Lumber can help.

Signs Your Deck Needs to Be Refinished, Repaired, or Replaced

Perform a complete visual inspection of your deck. This can help determine if your deck shows any of the following red flags for requiring deck repair or replacement. Cracks, green discoloration, visible rotting, and weak spots within your deck are all telltale signs that your deck needs to be repaired. A consultation with Fisher Lumber can help determine your deck’s vulnerable areas, an estimate for repair, and an overall estimate for replacement when necessary. 

Weigh the Potential Costs of Refinishing, Repairing, or Replacement

An investment in refinishing, repairing, or replacing your entire deck can be a costly process. You’ll want to weigh the potential costs between your available options for what works with your family’s budget. You’ll also want to consider that an investment in fixing your deck can also serve a greater purpose: creating a deck that will last a lifetime within your home or even a greater market value.

Consider Materials Used for Repair or Replacement

If you’re opting to repair or replace your deck, you’ll carefully consider the materials you use. Fisher Lumber has a variety of materials to choose from for deck design. Whether you’re searching to incorporate engineered hardwood or stick to natural lumber, we can assist you through your deck repair and replacement process. Additionally, you might want to consider replacing out-of-date wood decking with something a little updated that will last longer than natural wood. We can help!
