Deck Rebuild and Stain – Let’s Take Fade and Make it FAB

Deck rebuild and stain is a hot topic every year for Residential Solutions. When your fencing and deck gets old, weather beaten and mildew covered, it’s time for a deck rebuild and stain project. Kansas City is home to a variety of weather all year round. The sun and rain can be brutal to wood, and left untreated it will only get worse. Sun damaged wood is more susceptible to mold and fungus growth, water intrusion and rotting. Split boards, splintered and raised grain, and pulled nails are hazardous – making your deck unsafe and virtually unusable.  Deck rebuild and stain projects for decks and fences can be simple or challenging, depending on your goals and current conditions. Simple replacement of a few worn boards can be limited in cost, where a complete overhaul can be very expensive. And then when is best for a DIY approach vs a deck rebuild and stain professional?  Just like any other home remodeling project, it’s important to begin with careful planning.

Most of the time the support and foundation of a deck is solid, so you probably won’t need to have a complete tear-down, rebuild and stain. The majority of the time not a single board needs to be replaced. A professional like Residential Solutions will handle your deck rebuild and stain project with care. We will professionally clean your deck, remove algae, moss, mold, and fungus feeding on the wood. Our professional crew will inspect each board and banister for safety and integrity, addressing any issues that might be found. Occasionally we run into decks that were built by a home’s previous owner. They are poorly constructed and falling apart. Thankfully, Residential Solutions also repairs and upgrades decks that have fallen into disrepair and have become hazardous.

If your deck is not up to code Residential Solutions can fix the deficiencies. If it has become hazardous due to rot, improper foundation, or shoddy construction, Residential Solutions can turn things around and restore your deck to your satisfaction. We assure you that your deck rebuild and stain project can be restored for a fraction of the cost of building a new one. Most deck rebuild and stain projects involve sanding down raised grain and applying a deck brightening solution. We will seal and stain your deck to protect it (and you) and enable you to enjoy your deck again.
