Deck Rot Finally Shows Itself

 

 

Wood decking can add value and enjoyment to your backyard experience. Maintaining it can extend the life of the wood decking and even hold off the rotting and decay of the wood members. Despite our efforts, wood will one day rot and show itself.

If your deck is in need of repair, contact a Placerville local general contractor for help in repairing or replacing your wood deck.

Good morning Tom. So nothing lasts forever. Bummer. I wish you luck with this but know you don't really need it.

Unless constructed prior to the beautiful lasting simulated wood materials, why would anyone construct a deck of wood today???

We have shifted to the manufactured decking and generally use pressure treated lumber for framing Lenn Harley . You are right, it is hard to make a good argument for the use of wood decking today.

My brother had a large deck off of the back of his house when he lived in The Woodlands in Texas....it was a lot of upkeep but it always looked beautiful.

Tom Arstingstall, General Contractor, Dry Rot, Water Damage Sacramento, El Dorado County - (916) 765-5366 The wood decks really took a beating this last winter and invariably we will be hearing about deck collapses, because homeowners overloaded them, or from just plain lack of maintenance. Another  great post.

I have an old wood deck in back, built around 1970.  It is showing its age.  Will be looking at some D-I-Y solutions.

I agree with Lenn Harley .  I'm not a fan of wood decking.  Too much maintenance.  Unfortunately for me, it's what my current home has.  Oh well.

Wood decks = Job security for contractors! They will always rot overtime.

I'm sure you will make that deck look like new again Tom Arstingstall, General Contractor, Dry Rot, Water Damage Sacramento, El Dorado County - (916) 765-5366!
