Things to Consider Before Wood Deck Repair in Manassas, VA
Are you in need of wood deck repair on your Manassas, VA property? It happens. Sometimes it’s easy to lose track of everything in and around your home that needs regular maintenance. If it’s been a while since your deck has seen any maintenance or gotten any TLC, then you may want someone to give it a quick look and some basic repairs before you start using it for outdoor entertaining this season.
Perhaps you’ve recently purchased a home, and the deck attached to it looks a bit sketchy. If it’s bad enough that members of your family are nervous about even stepping out onto it, it could definitely use some work.
The good news is that you don’t have to let the project soak up all your free time, or worse, miss work to get the job done. As the #1 fencing, decking and porch company in the region, nobody knows more about wood deck repair in Manassas, VA than we do. In the vast majority of cases, we’ll be able to restore your aging deck to like-new condition for a fraction of what it would cost you to have something new built in its place.
Every once in awhile, though, the damage is so extensive that repair is an inefficient option. We won’t know for sure until we’ve had an opportunity to survey and assess the damage, so if you decide to call on us, that’s our first step. We’ll send one of our experienced estimators out to take a look.
Once we have a better understanding of what we’re dealing with, we’ll be able to give you a professional recommendation on how best to proceed and a free estimate, so you’ll know exactly what it will take to get your deck restored to its former glory. Then, assuming you’re comfortable with our estimate, we’ll dispatch one of our veteran crews and get to work!
Some of the clients we work with prefer to see the fact of a damaged deck as an opportunity to upgrade. Rather than worrying about potentially extensive wood deck repairs on their Manassas, VA property, they just tell us they want the old deck gone and a new, custom deck built in its place.
We’re happy to do that too! In fact, our skilled craftsmen love the unique challenges that come with building a totally custom deck.
Understand though, that a custom deck build is a substantially bigger and more involved project than simple wood deck repairs on your Manassas, VA property. We’ll need to work with you very closely to make sure we capture every aspect of your vision. The more information we get from you before the build begins, the happier you’ll be with what we ultimately create for you!
To that end, here are the kinds of questions we’ll be asking and the kinds of information we’re interested in collecting:
How big is your dream deck?
How do you access the deck from inside your home? How do you access your yard from the deck?
Do you envision your deck as existing all on one level, or because of the slope of your property, do you need something that exists on two or more levels that step gradually down into your yard?
Will your dream deck be one giant, open space, or do you see it as being made up of a number of distinctly defined areas, each with their own specific functions?
Will you want extras like a built-in picnic table, built-in bench-style seating, or hidden storage compartments?
Should we leave space for a wet bar or hot tub?
What material do you want your custom deck built out of?
As you can see, there are lots of details to consider. If you know you want something custom but you’re a little hazy on the details, we can help with that too. Our recommendation is that you spend some time browsing through the extensive collection of photos we keep elsewhere on the site.
Doing so will not only give you the chance to see the quality of the work our craftsmen are capable of, but you’ll also get plenty of great ideas for your custom deck project that will help crystalize the vision in your mind.
Where materials are concerned, broadly speaking, you’ve got two choices. We can build your deck out of pressure-treated lumber or some type of composite material.
Both types of materials have advantages and disadvantages. If you choose to build with pressure-treated lumber, you’ll find that your upfront costs are a bit lower. Still, you’ll see more in the way of periodic maintenance as wooden decks require an annual inspection, annual sanding, re-staining, and resealing to help protect them from the elements and a random power washing to keep them looking like new.
If you opt to have your dream deck built with a composite material, you’ll pay a little more on the front end, but you won’t have to sand, stain, reseal, or power wash, which cuts down greatly on maintenance. Ultimately, there are no right answers here. It comes down to your personal tastes and preferences.
Of course, we do a lot more than simple wood deck repair in Manassas, VA and custom deck build jobs. In addition to that, we’re the area’s top-rated fencing company and can install any type of fence you want or need, including custom fencing solutions.
On top of that, we can also refurbish damaged porches and fences, restoring them to their former glory in the same way we do where decks are concerned. We can also design and build a totally custom porch for you if that’s what you desire.
Our process is similar to the one we outlined above, for custom deck builds, but many of the questions understandably change and include things like:
What type of porch do you want? Front porch? Side porch? Back porch? Or maybe you want one that wraps part way around your house. If so, how far?
Will the new porch tie onto any existing decks or porches? If so, how will the two be connected?
Do you want your porch to be standard width, or would you like something extra wide, so there’s plenty of room for a porch swing and other outdoor furniture?
Will your porch needed steps? If so, what should they look like? Will it need safety rails? If so, which should those look like?
What do you want your porch made out of?
Do you want your porch screened in? Do you want a catio?
Where materials are concerned, the same pros and cons we talked about earlier apply here as well. Screened porches are wildly popular because they allow you to enjoy the great outdoors while providing enough protection to keep the bugs in the great outdoors from enjoying you. It’s a fantastic way to take in the fabulous views and vistas this part of the country has to offer.
If you’re a cat owner, turning one of your porches into a deluxe, safe outdoor kitty space is a great idea and rapidly increasing in popularity. You can find literally thousands of examples on Pinterest if you want to create an unforgettable outdoor space for your four-legged friends.
The bottom line is simply this: You can consider us to be your one-stop shop where all your outdoor spaces are concerned. Whether you’re looking for a simple decorative fence to add a bit of flair to your property, a tall and imposing privacy fence, a new porch, a totally custom deck, or repairs on any of those, we’ve got you covered. Getting the custom deck, fence, or porch you’ve always wanted has never been easier.
Since the day we first opened our doors, we’ve built our reputation by exceeding the expectations of each and every customer we serve, and we’ve loved the opportunity to impress you. When you’re ready to stop dreaming and start buildings, help is just a phone call away.
Give us a call, and let’s build something amazing together. We’ll be there when you need us!
