Deck Repair Burnaby
Any landscaping structure that is exposed to the elements always runs the risk to be damaged acutely or over time. Your deck is no exception as it receives high traffic as well as being exposed to mother nature (less exposure with a patio cover). If you have a professional deck contractor constructing your deck, you reduce the likelihood of requiring a repair in the future. Sometimes there can be things out of your control in which you may require deck repair services. When our team takes a look at a damaged deck, we do a full assessment to determine the extent of the damages and try to pinpoint the underlying issue. In some instances, the damage to your deck can be caused from areas where it might not be visible in plain sight. Structural framing of the deck and underneath areas can also be damaged and may require repairs as well. Our team has repaired countless decks in both residential and commercial settings. If you notice that your deck is damaged, don't hesitate to call us for a free consultation on your deck repair.
A common repair job that we get called for is wood rot on the deck. The pacific northwest climate provides an ideal environment for mold and rot. Warm summers, the amount of precipitation, and the winds coming in from the coast are all things that allow rot to thrive. When we perform a rot repair, it's imperative we find the exact spot it started from. This combined with knowing the type of rot allows us to understand how it could try and spread and we can make sure we tackle the issues accordingly. Once we finish this assessment, we typically find out what was the cause of the rot growth and can even potentially put in some measure to mitigate future risks for you deck as well.
While less common than wood decks, Vinyl decks may also need repair or restoration work as well. We typically see more inquiries from our commercial clients compared to our residential. With vinyl decks, dirt and stains can accumulate as time goes on which can create a unpleasant look. Regular cleans should be done as many manufacturers require regular maintenance work on your vinyl to be valid. If the membrane of your vinyl id damaged, there are some options for you to consider. If the damage is small and you are not worried about a small blemish on your deck, a quick patch repair can be done. Its a very economical repair and is a fairly simple fix as well. If you have multiple spots that require repair (or a large area) or the area below your deck cannot be exposed to moisture leaks, a full replacement of your vinyl deck may be required.
If the damage is not significant, there are some alternative solutions we can try. If a patch repair is enough for the job but you don't like the look, we can try to rearrange the patio furniture to help cover the blemish. If your deck is getting up there in age, applying a new deck coating could be another option as well. This is a great way to add another layer to your deck to renew it and to help keep out any unwanted moisture.
If your deck is damaged in anyway, give our team a call for a free consultation on your deck repair.
