One of the big
frustrations for homeowners is receiving conflicting information from deck builders. One question that often rises is if the consumer can use their existing structure and simply replace the deck boards and rail or if they need a complete tear down and new structure.
Deck building is a science and an art. The average deck should last 25-30 years when it is built properly. If you have a deck that is 15 years old and I is in need of a face lift, have a professional out to do a deck safety inspection and chances are you could save a considerable amount of money with a re-deck as opposed to a complete tear down!
