Wood is Rotting

This is one of the first signs that it may be time to invest in a new deck. Wood will rot over time outside in the elements. You can see wood rot on the deck boards, the joists, and the bottom of the posts. Moisture and fungus are your deck’s biggest enemies. If you notice your deck wood is rotting, it may be time for deck removal.

Cracked or split Lumber

If you are tripping over your deck wood that has cracked, split, or upheaved, it’s probably time to replace your deck. When wood begins to crack, it loses a lot of its structural integrity, which is a safety hazard for walking on and for your deck furniture to sit on.

Missing Hardware and Railings

The rails of decks are for safety, and if those start to go missing, it’s definitely time to consider a deck replacement service and to have your deck removed by your local junk hauling company in Cheyenne. Nails, screws, and bolts can also disappear, positng a safety hazard as well.

  1. In cases where the underlying structure is okay, you can replace the deck boards and preferably treat them as well. Use a water repellant from the local hardware store to increase the lifespan of your new boards. You’ll also have to replace all the railing at the same time, but it’s so much cheaper than replacing the whole deck! Make sure your rafters are even and level before you add the new deck boards.
