Get Decks Ready for Entertaining with Composite Deck Repair in Dumfries, VA
Do you find yourself in need of composite deck repair in Dumfries, VA? It happens. Maybe you’ve recently purchased a home that had a composite deck attached that the owners simply let go, and now it’s in a dilapidated state. Perhaps you’ve been a bit lax about deck maintenance and things have now reached the point where you and your family are leery about venturing out onto the deck.
Either way, we can help. In the vast majority of cases, we can restore your deck to like-new condition for a fraction of what it would cost to have the old one ripped out and have something new built in its place.
As the #1 fencing, deck, and porch company in the area, nobody knows more about composite deck repair in Dumfries, VA than we do, and our craftsmen are among the best you’ll find anywhere. One call to our office and you’re well on your way to getting your deck back and ready for outdoor entertaining any time you are.
Once we get your composite deck restored to its former glory, we recommend an annual inspection and an as-needed wipe-down with a warm, wet cloth. If you have a wooden deck, in addition to the annual inspection, we recommend an annual power washing, sanding, staining, and re-sealing to give it an extra measure of protection from the elements. Composite decking materials don’t require any of those things to keep them looking like new.
Don’t have a deck yet? If your home doesn’t currently have one, and it’s something that’s been on your wish list for a while, we can help with that too. The same skills we employ to take care of composite deck repair work in Dumfries, VA can easily be employed to create the custom deck you’ve always dreamed of.
Understand though, that a custom deck is a much bigger project than a simple repair or restoration job. We’ll need to work closely with you to capture the essence of your vision. If you know you want something custom, but you’re struggling with the particulars of that vision, we encourage you to spend some time browsing through the extensive collection of photos we keep elsewhere on the site.
Taking the time to do so will provide you with two key benefits. First, it will give you a chance to see some of the other projects we’ve worked on for our other clients, which displays the quality of the workmanship our craftsmen are capable of. Second, it’s sure to give you all sorts of great ideas for your own custom deck project.
Once you have your vision crystallized in your mind, we’ll sit down with you and capture the details. There are a lot more questions to consider than you may realize at first. To get your mind turning on the subject, here are the kinds of details we’ll be looking for:
- How big is your dream deck?
- How do you access the deck from your home? Put another way, where is the deck situated, relative to your house?
- How do you access your yard from the deck?
- Will you need steps or safety rails? If so, what should they look like, and what are they made of?
- Does your dream deck exist all on one level, or because of the lay of your land, will you need something that exists on multiple levels that steps gradually down into your property?
- Do you envision just one big, wide-open multi-function space, or would you prefer to have several distinctly defined deck areas, each with their own purpose?
- What about fun extras like built-in seating or hidden storage compartments?
- Do you plan to have things like a wet bar, a built-in picnic table, or space for a hot tub?
- What do you want your deck made out of?
As we said at the start, this is much bigger and more involved than a simple composite deck repair on your Dumfries, VA property, but the more of these kinds of details we capture upfront, the happier you’ll be with what we ultimately build.
Where that last bullet point is concerned, at your preference, we can either build your dream deck from pressure-treated lumber or some type of composite material. We touched on this earlier, but it bears repeating here: The key advantage of building with pressure-treated lumber is that your initial build costs are lower upfront, but wooden decks require more in terms of periodic maintenance.
The big advantage of building with a composite material is that although the upfront costs are somewhat higher, you’ll have less in terms of periodic maintenance. Overall, the two more or less balance out, so it comes down to what your preference is.
Of course, we do a lot more than handle composite deck repair in Dumfries, VA or custom deck builds. If you have an aging, sagging porch you’d like to have refurbished, we can do that too! If you don’t have a porch yet, but you’ve always wanted to add one, our craftsmen are up to that challenge as well.
As we described when we outlined the process of building a custom deck for you, a custom porch project is fairly involved and we’ll need to collect a good bit of information from you to be sure you’re thrilled with the finished product, but of course, several of the questions will be different.
For instance, where will your porch be located? Should it be a standard width, or do you want something extra wide to make sure you’ve got plenty of room for a planned porch swing or outdoor furniture for entertaining?
Do you want a porch that wraps part way around your house? Do you want your new porch to tie into another porch located on some other part of your house?
What about the possibility of a screened-in porch? Yes, we can do those too, either building something custom or screening in your existing porch. Screened porches have really grown in popularity in recent years and it’s easy to understand why. It’s a great way to enjoy the fabulous views and vistas our area offers, without exposing you to the bugs and other pests in the great outdoors.
On top of that, we also do fencing, so if you have an older fence that’s fallen into disrepair, or if you want to add one to a portion of your property, we’ll be happy to lend our expertise to that task as well.
How about a privacy fence for your backyard, allowing you to create a private paradise for your family to enjoy? What about a decorative fence around a secret garden somewhere on your property? The possibilities are endless!
Even better, since we’re a locally owned and operated company, we have a lot more flexibility when it comes to working with you to be sure you get exactly what you want. If you want your fence built out of some exotic material, we can do that. If you’re not content with the stock fencing options available and want us to work with you to design a totally custom fence, we can do that too.
Most people have a long list of improvements they’d like to make to their home, both inside and out. We can help turn your outdoor spaces into a stunning showplace you’ll be thrilled to entertain in.
