Deck Repair and Replacement in Fort Worth, Texas
The Texas weather can do a number on your outdoor structures over time. Mix in damage from pests and your deck will soon be in need of repair. The weather can deteriorate the look and the strength of a wooden deck. Boards will warp and crack. Posts will begin to rot. Termites, carpenter ants, and other pests can eat and nest in the wood, making the deck unsafe to use. Fort Worth Deck and Fence can help repair your deck and bring it back to new. We provide termite protection, weatherproof decking, and damage deck repair services.
Heavy Texas springtime rains can cause the wood to bend, rot, or grow mold. The wood absorbs into your deck boards causing the wood to expand. This expansion can weaken the boards and well and bend and twist. The hot and dry summer can dry out the wood making it more susceptible to water retention and will make the wood look gray.
Most decks should be sealed every one to two years to help prevent the water from absorbing into the wood. So how do you know if your deck is in need of sealant? Water will bead up on the surface of the boards rather than pool up. A properly sealed deck can prevent a number of other repairs down the line and is rather inexpensive, so don’t wait until the damage is already done. A stain will bring the dull-looking boards back to life and make the wood look like new again. This added with an anti-weathering agent will block UV rays and protect the wood from sun damage.
Our deck repair process begins with an inspection of the deck to identify the weak, warped, or rotten boards. Next, we remove and replace those boards, then sweep the deck and power wash the deck. We allow the wood dry completely before we apply the stain, anti-weathering agent, and sealant.
Termites can cause a world of damage to wooden structures and your deck is no different. Termites will build a nest in the wood and eat the wood causing it to become fragile and eventually break. They generally start near the ground and will eat through the posts holding the structure up. This causes an unsafe hazard for you and your family.
We inspect all the wood on your deck for termites, carpenter ants, and other pests. Once we have determined the pest causing the damage, we treat the infection to rid them from the wood. If necessary, we replace any unsafe boards, then treat the wood with a preventative that will keep the pests from returning.
