Winter is coming. Are you ready? More importantly, is your deck ready? According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, only about 40% of all decks are completely safe. And with snowfall being one of the leading causes of deck collapses, late fall is the perfect time to consider Re-Decking, especially with the winter we have on the way.
The Farmer’s Almanac is calling for another harsh winter here in Maryland: a “colder than normal, wetter than normal” winter. To put that in terms of expected snow fall, former TV meteorologist Justin Berk is predicting 30 inches of snow at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), while WMAR-TV meteorologist Mike Masco is predicting 28-35 inches of snowfall in Baltimore City, with as much as 50 inches in northern and western counties.
So maybe it’s time to address that old wooden deck of yours, especially if it is more than 15 years old. After all, the average wood deck lasts just 10-15 years with regular, preventive maintenance.
Is Re-Decking an Option before Winter Hits Baltimore?
Re-decking is a cost-effective alternative to total deck replacement. Instead of replacing the entire deck, re-decking utilizes the existing frame (if it is structurally sound). All that is replaced is the old, worn out deck boards. These are replaced with new, low-maintenance products, giving your deck a brand new look without the high price tag.
