Getting Underneath the Surface

Is your deck surface showing signs of wear? Is it chipping, flaking, cracking, delaminating, soft, dry rotted, or leaking? While these deck coating deterioration signs may be cause for alarm, what’s going on underneath the surface might be even moresurface cracking troubling! Whatever the coating is showing, doesn’t necessarily reflect the problems going on structurally. It is imperative to make sure that when you start see any signs of water damage, that you take the proper steps at getting underneath the surface. Calling Prestige Deck Coating is a wise first step.

Underneath Deck Surface Solutions

When your decking has extensive foundational damage, deck repair is crucial. At Prestige Deck Coatings, we perform various types of wood repair.

Dry Rot Repair. When the deteriorating plywood section is only 16 ft.² or less, we perform what we call dry rot repair. This includes removing the damaged deck area, and replacing the unusable plywood with three-quarter inch plywood.

Plywood Removal and Resheeting. If the deck surface issues are extensive, the plywood removal and resheeting process is necessary. This usually means that we remove all the plywood on the subfloor of the deck and replace it with three-quarter inch tongue and groove plywood.

Sistering Joists. In the worst case scenario (like the example to the left), we have to perform structural rebuilding. In other words,sister joists_surface leaking we might have to replace 2 x 6 beams and or sister joists. In this case, you waited far too long to attend to the state of your deck coating.
