This was a fun project. Several summers ago when the homeowners first moved in to their house, they budgeted to do a few repairs each summer to their deck and landscaping. We sanded down the boards, replaced 4 rotten ones, and then gave everything a nice coat of Sherwin Williams Deckscapes paint/stain combo. It’s tint-able so they were able to pick the color they wanted and it came out nice. We also rebuilt their seat along the edge of the deck and stained it too.
This last summer they were ready to have all new boards installed on the main deck. After ripping up the tired, old pressure treated lumber, we replaced it with all new already-stained brown pressure treated wood from Home Depot. They also have some pesky neighbors, so we built a lattice backdrop with pressure treated wood to help give them some privacy on spring and summer evenings.
The last picture is two custom-made planters made out of some left-over decking material. It was our gift to them for being a great customer over the years. (We also completely rebuilt the sprinkler system that was originally installed in 1983 and was in bad shape. Just don’t have pics of that big project!)
As long as it’s fairly dry for at least a week, winter could be a great time to replace your deck boards! We would be glad to come by and take a look at your project, and get everything done now so when spring sneaks up on you and you want to spend time on the deck, it’s beautiful and ready for company.
