Obvious Signs of Wear and Tear on Your Deck
Pickets and railings are especially vulnerable to over exposure to moisture and wood eating insects. Stress fractures are also a concern that needs to be inspected and repaired. Even rotting lumber can be repaired without the time and expense of an entirely new construction. Let our expert crew come out and have a look at your deck to see what kind of repair options are suitable for your deck.
Badly damaged components, especially posts and planks will most likely need replacement. These affect the structure of the deck and could make it unsafe to use if excessive rot is evident. The new posts along with the ones that were not affected can then be covered with a vinyl wrap.
What is a Vinyl Wrap?
Composite vinyl wraps are made of sturdy materials that are resistant to weather and termite damage. They are used to give added protection to the wooden posts that provide your deck support. For replacing posts, a vinyl post sleeve will be slid onto the new wooden post before installation. This perfect fit ensures longevity for the wooden structure. Vinyl cladding or wrap will be used on the posts that do not need replacing. It is secured around the wood to maintain its integrity and structural strength.
Composite vinyl can be used for all of your outside buildings, including fences, porches and gazebos. Coming in a variety of sizes, they will fit posts and rails of any diameter. They are also available in different colors to either match your existing deck or to add a stark contrast for a dramatic effect to your St. Louis home.
So long as the majority of your deck is still structurally sound, you can remedy the unsightly wear and tear it has endured with this innovative solution. Composite vinyl wrapping gives you a completely fresh look that is maintenance free and easy to keep clean.
