If you are thinking about making some upgrades to your backyard but don’t know exactly where to start. How about someplace you spend a lot of time on? Like your backyard deck. While your old deck might last you through the end of fall and through winter, what about when the weather starts to warm up again and you want to start spending time outside? There is no time like the present to start your deck home project.
One of the first signs that you might need a new deck is if your deck you have now is sitting on rotted posts. This posts a problem because the last thing you want is for the rotted wood to give out completely and your deck collapsing. With the added weight of the winter snow, this is something to consider. Another important factor is if your railing shake if you touch or grab onto them. Safety of who is on the deck should be your top priority, and if you are unsure if they can hold someone up then that’s a sure sign. If deck boards wobble and don’t stay in place when you’re on your deck is another great sign you need a new deck. Sometimes it’s easy to overlook signs and focus your attention onto a different part of the house – but your deck shouldn’t be something that is overlooked.
