Is your deck looking gray? Do you have some boards that are showing signs of rot? Are some boards split? If your deck has seen its better days, it may be time for decking board replacement at your home in Manassas, VA. No matter if you have one or two decking boards that need to be replaced, the process is all the same. You can splice boards instead of having decking board replacement over the entire deck in Manassas, VA.
Start your deck board replacement by slow-walking completely around your deck in Manassas, VA checking each individual board looking for—
- Long splits in the wood grain
- Splintering, gouges, and loose material
- Knot holes where the boards are most likely to fracture
- Boards curling up at the edges known as cupping
Any board that is broken or looks worse than the neighboring board should be included in your decking board replacement project. Measure the boards that need replacing and purchase new ones at your local Manassas, VA hardware store. Once you get your lumber home, you can start removing the old boards. Hopefully, your decking boards are screwed on, so all you need do is back the screws out; but if they are nailed, it just takes a little bit more time to pry the nails out.
