Deck repairs and deck leveling is common in Michigan. We can return the decks back to level. We update hardware to today’s codes if needed. We can add deck tension ties to guard rail posts to secure the rails. We update the post and beam connection with 1/2″ through bolts from decks that we see that are simply nailed. Nails tend to rust with time an will not hold the weight of a beam. We can add joist hangers to decks that they are missing on. We commonly see decks that need additional posts and are over spanned and can correct these problems. In some cases where the deck is built so bad we recommend that the deck be re-built.
Deck leveling and repair for Michigan homeowners
The last two winters we have seen a record amount of decks that have risen from the cold Michigan winters. We are able to level the decks for homeowners and update their current hardware to codes of today.
We repair and build decks all year round.
What do deck builders do in the winter? Build decks. If you are looking for the best price on a Trex deck or a wooden deck it is best to have the work done after December 1st. This is when we give our rock bottom prices. Large decks see the biggest discounts during this time and you have a new deck for spring.
Rebuilding a staircase or adding a staircase
Typically the floor on a cedar deck will rot out first. However, sometimes the 4×4 posts on a railing rots and will not hold the weight of a person leaning on it. We have handymen that can rebuild your railing sections. Sometimes it is worth just replacing the deck. That decision is based on how long that you will be in the home
Wood decks Pressure Treated lumber
Pressure treatment is a process that forces chemical preservatives into the wood. Wood is placed inside a closed cylinder, then vacuum and pressure are applied to force the preservatives into the wood. The preservatives help protect the wood from attack by termites, other insects, and fungal decay. Cedar decks rot and pressure treated decks warp, cup and split. The picture above is an example of pressure treated lumber 1 week after it was installed. We usually recommend that it be screwed down to slow the twisting of the boards. Homeowners that use treated lumber for the deck topping are doing so strictly on price.
The pros and cons of cedar decking
If the natural look of wood is tops on your list, use cedar. The heartwood of the tree (the deeper colored red part, not the white sap part) is rot resistant. Cedar doesn’t readily absorb moisture— and, since moisture is what creates twisting and splitting, cedar decking tends to lie flat and straight. Most carpenters figure a lifespan of 15 to 20 years for cedar deck boards, but it can deteriorate faster when used for ground-level decks
and for shaded decks that are slow to dry out.
To retain the color, you have to clean it and reseal it every year or two, and even then it’s a losing battle. I’ve never seen a 10-year-old cedar deck that still had that warm, rich look of new wood. Cedar is also soft; when used for stairs or for decks where furniture gets dragged around a lot, the edges in particular can get beat up. Finally, the cost of the cedar is moderate, more than pressure-treated but somewhat less than composite.
