Looking to Remodel Your Deck - Here’s How

Posted March 23, 2022

As people spend more time working and relaxing in their homes, they are more willing to invest in their outdoor spaces. Perhaps you are, too.

Improving your backyard is an excellent way to expand your space, improve your mental and physical health and encourage more time outdoors. Plus, a beautiful backyard adds value to the home when it comes time to sell.

Since the deck is a main focal point of your outdoor space, it’s worth giving attention to. How is your deck looking these days? What do you like about it? What do you wish you could change?

Here are some of the ways that you can remodel your deck for improved aesthetics and functionality.

Switch to Composite/PVC Decking

One of the first things we recommend is to switch out your wood deck pieces with composite and PVC. These man-made decking materials resist rotting and deterioration so that you may enjoy them for years to come. They also stay cooler than traditional wood and won’t fade or stain.

Composite decking is available in numerous colors and finishes to complement any style. We find that shades of brown and gray are most versatile and popular. And another bonus - you don’t have to worry about splinters!

Add a New Deck Railing

Another way to remodel your deck is by adding a new railing, especially if yours is coming loose. A new railing will give your deck a finished look while keeping it safe. Deck railings can also be made from composite materials so that you don’t have to worry about them rotting, warping or splintering. Mix and match colors on your baluster, posts and top rail for a truly distinct look!

Install Benches and Seating

Need more seating on your deck? Instead of investing in more patio furniture that you have to care for throughout the seasons, you can install deck benches and seating. No more chairs to move around or unruly clutter to step over. The built-in composite benches will blend in with the rest of the deck and provide plenty of seating for your guests.

Incorporate New Lighting

New lighting is always a great way to enhance any outdoor space. The right lighting illuminates your space, makes it easier to entertain at night and also provides a soft ambiance. Consider installing post cap lights, accent lights and stair lights to keep you and your guests safe. And, with a new composite deck, you won’t mind the light shining down on your clean, warp-free boards!
