Do I Need to Rebuild My Deck?

As summer officially begins, you’ll be spending a lot more time outside. From backyard barbecues to graduations to family reunions, there are plenty of reasons to bring people together at a home you’re proud to show off. Before that, check in on your deck – is it summer-ready? If winter and spring hit your Connecticut home particularly hard, you might be asking yourself: “Do I need to rebuild my deck?”


Deck Repair

When should you opt for deck repair? Decks have a typical lifespan of around 20 years. If you’re within this time frame and have some minor repairs, you may not need to demo and replace the entire deck. While we do not currently offer deck repair services, our team can examine the framing and assess the structural integrity of your deck to make that determination for you. Sometimes, all that is needed is repair. Other times, a full deck replacement and upgrade is the more appropriate choice.


Deck Replacement

If you’re ready to upgrade your yard with a beautiful, luxury deck that will last, you’re in the right place! If your deck is more than 20 years old or your deck is generally unstable, rotten, or beyond the help of a cosmetic overhaul, you’re also likely looking for deck builders to completely replace it. This is where you’ll need a professional contractor like us. Generally speaking, if the deck boards are significantly rotted or have obvious, gaping holes, severe cracking, etc., or if your deck has become structurally unsound, you’re probably looking at a deck replacement.

Deck Replacement Cost

A deck replacement is akin to building a deck from scratch, which means the cost of a deck replacement can be significantly higher than deck repair (the national average of building a new deck is $7,743). If you plan to significantly expand the deck – or redesign it completely – deck replacement makes the most sense, and investing in the addition of this space is a practical and reliable way to increase your home’s value!

When making such a significant investment in a space you’ll spend a lot of time in, choosing experienced contractors who stand behind their materials and their work is important. Working with Harmony Home Improvement means choosing to work with the best contractors in Connecticut who care about your satisfaction.
