Composite Deck Repair and Much Much More in Gainesville, VA
When you purchased the home you’re living in now, did it have a deck attached? Was it in relatively poor condition? That’s a common issue, and if you’re a little daunted by the prospect of handling the repair work on your own, we can help with that.
As the top-rated fencing, decking, and porch company in the area, nobody knows more about composite deck repair in Gainesville, VA than we do and you’ll be hard-pressed to find more skilled craftsmen anywhere. In most cases, we can restore your deck to its former glory and get it ready for outdoor entertaining for a fraction of what it would cost you to have the existing deck torn out and have something new built in its place.
Then, once we’ve got your deck back to looking its best, our recommendation is to schedule an annual inspection to allow for incremental repairs as needed. Aside from that, the only other thing you need to do to composite decks to keep them looking great is to wash them as needed with warm soapy water and a damp cloth. Unlike wooden decks, composite decks don’t need to be power-washed, stained or sealed to help protect them from the elements.
If you don’t have a deck yet, but you’ve always wanted one, know that our talented craftsmen are capable of far more than simple composite deck repair in Gainesville, VA. We’ll be more than happy to work with you to build the deck you’ve always dreamed of having.
Understand, however, that a custom deck project is quite a bit more involved than a simple composite deck repair job in Gainesville, VA, and as such, we’ll need to work closely with you to capture the details of your vision. If you know you want something custom but you’re having trouble seeing the details of your vision, we encourage you to spend some time browsing through the large and growing collection of photos we keep elsewhere on the site.
Doing so will provide you with two important advantages. First, it will allow you to see the quality of the work our crews are capable of, allowing you to hire us with confidence. Second, it’s sure to give you plenty of ideas for your own custom deck project.
Once you’ve got a firm, clear idea of what you want, we’ll sit down with you and capture your vision, turning the details we get from you into a project plan. The more and better information we get from you on the front end, the happier you’re bound to be with what we ultimately build.
There are a lot of details to collect and in order to get your mind turning on the subject, here are a few examples of the kinds of questions we’ll be asking:
- How big do you envision your dream deck being?
- Will it be all on one level, or because of the way your land slopes, will you need something that exists on multiple levels that steps down gradually into your yard?
- How do you access the deck from inside your home?
- How does it attach to your house?
- How do you access your yard from the deck?
- Will you need stairs or safety rails? If so, what should they look like?
- Are you interested in adding built-in bench seating, a built-in picnic table, or hidden storage?
- Would you like us to leave space for a hot tub or a wet bar, or some other extra like that?
- And finally, what should your dream deck be made out of?
The last question is particularly important and broadly speaking, you can opt for either a wooden deck or a deck made out of composite materials. Wooden decks tend to be somewhat cheaper to build initially, but require more in the way of maintenance in the longer term.
Composite materials are a little more expensive to build with but require less in the way of ongoing maintenance. Note, however, that since composite materials cost a bit more when you do have to make repairs, composite deck repair in Gainesville, VA also tends to cost a little more.
Ultimately, there are no right answers here. It comes down to your personal preference and how much you want to spend initially.
Once we’ve captured the details of your vision, we’ll use that information to create a project plan. When that’s done, we’ll give it to you for final review along with a free, no-obligation estimate so you’ll have a clear understanding of what it will take to turn your dream deck into a reality.
Then, assuming you’re comfortable with our estimate, we’ll get to work. Before you know it, you’ll have the deck you’ve always wanted, and your outdoor entertaining options will expand exponentially.
What about fences? If you have a fence anywhere on your property that’s sagging and starting to show its age, don’t break your back and use up your precious free time trying to fix it yourself, just give us a call. Our craftsmen can employ the same skills used to handle composite deck repair jobs in Gainesville, VA and get your fence looking like new in no time.
If you don’t yet have a fence but you’d like to add one, that’s great news. Fencing is a solid addition to most any property that will enhance its value if and when you decide to sell your home at some point, and in the meantime, it will enhance your enjoyment of your property and make an eye-catching addition.
Even better, since we’re a family-owned and operated company, we have virtually unlimited flexibility. Since we don’t have to answer to a far-off corporate office, we can focus all our time and attention on giving you exactly the fence you want at a price you can afford.
You should also know that we do porches too! If you already have a porch, we can repair it if it’s in need of some TLC and keep it in great shape so you can use it for outdoor entertaining as you please. If you don’t yet have a porch but adding one has been on your wish list for a while now, we’re more than happy to assist.
Our process is similar to the one we described for custom decking, above, but the questions will understandably vary. To get your mind turning on the subject, here are some of the particulars we’ll need to gather from you:
- Where do you want the porch? Will it be a front porch, back porch, or side porch?
- Should the porch wrap partway around your house? If so, how far?
- Will the new porch need to connect to or tie into one or more existing porches already in place?
- Should we make the new porch extra wide to give you plenty of room for a porch swing or other outdoor furniture?
- Does your dream porch have safety rails or steps? If so, what should they look like?
- Do you want plain, functional support columns, or something more ornate and decorative?
- Do you want your new porch screened in?
Screened porches are incredibly popular in this area. It’s easy to understand why. After all, they offer you a great, convenient way to enjoy the fantastic views this part of the country has to offer and entertain family and friends without having to contend with insects and other pests.
Whatever your needs and desires are where your outdoor spaces are concerned, we’ve got you covered. If you can dream it, our skilled craftsmen can build it, so if you’re ready to stop dreaming and start building, we’d be thrilled to help turn your desires into reality and help you transform your outdoor spaces into the fabulous showplace you always knew they could be.
