Types of Deck Repair

There are various types of deck repairs that you may need to make over time. A few types of common deck repair include:

  • Deck Rail Repair: This involves reinforcing or replacing the deck rails to ensure the rails are sturdy and safe. 
  • Replace Warped Boards: Sometimes, a piece of wood dries out at a faster rate than the rest of the board, resulting in warping. When a board becomes warped, the best thing to do is to replace it. 
  • Replace Rotten Posts and Boards:  Sometimes, wood rots if you don’t apply the right sealants and stain. Rotten boards and posts need to be replaced right away. 
  • Hardware Replacement: All of your deck boards, posts, rails, and supports are connected using multiple nails, screws, and bolts. If the hardware fails, this can compromise the structural integrity of your deck. Replacing the hardware can help protect your deck. 
  • Reconstruction: Reconstruction is when the deck surface or framing must be completely replaced. 
  • Stair Repairs: It is important to have stable stairs. If they become wobbly or worn out, they need to be replaced.

Signs Your Deck Needs Repairs

Here are some signs that the professionals at Colorado Lumber Crafts need to repair your deck.

Loose Boards

Boards can become loose when the nails holding them in place begin to rust or break down over time.

If you step on a board and you feel like it's going to give way, then the board needs to be replaced. A deck with loose boards is dangerous for those who use it and can lead to major structural damage because of rot over time.

Cracking or Splitting Wood

If your wood starts cracking or splitting, it could mean that other issues are going on underneath the surface of your deck. This damage makes it difficult for water and moisture to get in, leading to mold and mildew growth inside your house.

Crooked or Broken Railing

If your railing is crooked or broken, this can pose a serious safety hazard for those using the deck stairs or platform area. It's important to repair this type of damage immediately so that everyone using the deck has a safe place to stand while enjoying your outdoor living space.

Gaps Between Wood

If you see gaps between the boards, this could be from wood warping or nails that have worked themselves out over time. Getting these fixed as soon as possible is important so that rainwater doesn't get into your home through those gaps.

The Wood Looks Dark or Damaged

If you notice that your wood is starting to look darker than normal, this could mean there is decay underneath the wood's surface. The sooner you get this repaired by a professional, the better off your deck will be in the long run.

Sagging Wood

If your deck sags, it means that the joists underneath have shifted. Several factors, including uneven settling and poor construction, can cause this. A sagging deck is dangerous because it could collapse if you step on it or if too much weight is placed on it (like when someone sits down).

Warping Wood

A warped deck is another sign that you need to call professionals. It means that your wood has warped because of moisture damage. This is usually caused by water seeping into the wood after rain or snow melts on top of the deck boards and drips into them through cracks in the sealant between boards.

Give your deck a once-over periodically. If it's starting to show wear and tear, it may be time to call in the professionals. It will likely cost less money—and take less time—to repair the damage with expert assistance than removing and replacing the entire deck. Consult a professional today if your deck shows any of these signs of damage.

Deciding to Repair or Replace Your Deck

If your deck is damaged, you may wonder if you should repair or replace your deck. 

If your deck has minor damage and is still in good shape, repairing it may be the most cost-effective option. 

In some cases, even a professional deck, porch, or patio repair may not be enough if there is structural damage. Buying a new deck, patio, or other outdoor space may be a better option if this is the case. 

Our team at Colorado Lumber Crafts will carefully inspect your deck, give you our professional option on the viability of repairing versus replacing your deck and work with you to create a safe outdoor living space that you and your family can continue to enjoy for years to come.
