We love the great state of Maryland with its charming rural areas and bustling mini cities. We even love Maryland weather…most of the time. Your deck…not so much. Hot summers, wet springs and icy winters have your Maryland decking looking old and worn. The wood is splitting. The color is faded. So the question is…do you replace or reface?

Signs of Deck Deterioration

There are many signs that your deck is deteriorating and is in need of repair. If you notice loose boards, rotting wood, color fading, or weakened rails, you should consider replacing or refacing your deck in the near future.

Deck Refacing – The Composite Option

Refacing your deck with composite decking can be more cost-effective than replacing the entire wood deck, but there are many things to consider before making this decision. For example, the deck structure must be sound, and you need to be happy with the existing deck size, design, and layout.

If the structure of your deck is not sound, replacement of your deck is warranted. However, if the structure is stable, deck refacing is a wonderful alternative to a costly new deck.

Composite decking is your best choice for refacing. It’s not only visually appealing, but it’s eco-friendly, and provides longevity, giving you the maximum benefit for your money. In addition, unlike traditional wood, composite decking will not split or fade. Composite decking provides superior durability and performance that wood can’t match. Finally, composite decking resists termites, won’t rot or warp, and never needs painting or staining.
