Common Deck Maintenance Issues
Forty years ago, pressure-treated deck boards were the greatest thing to hit the housing market since vinyl siding. But while treated lumber holds up well under most conditions, it's going to need work such as cleaning, stripping, sanding, and sealing.
Today, composite decking does even treated wood one better by doing away with the bulk of the upkeep. Made of a mix of waste wood or cellulose fiber and plastic, composite boards typically require only an occasional cleaning and re-anchoring boards. The same goes for new nonwood railings that are offered in a variety of materials, including composite, vinyl, glass, and metal.
Deck designs have evolved, too, with more homeowners seeking activity-specific spaces that mimic rooms inside their houses. The deck has become a hub for outdoor living and entertaining.
In general, decks suffer from a number of common problems. With normal wear and tear, wood planking becomes loose or cracked. Boards that start to give too much can result in nasty trips. Handrails start to loosen. The support posts grow old.
