The size of my deck was great. The colour of my deck was great. The rotting boards, not so great. After inspection we discovered that only the top boards were rotten and the main support of the deck was fine. We would have a resurface job “only”. But I wanted the “dock look”, the gray tones of the wood was what I loved most about my deck.
We found grey treated boards at Lowe’s and grey deck screws too! They are new products this year! The deck was stripped back and then a little more work then we had originally thought, had to be done. My husband decided we needed extra support. Much and I mean much more wood was added to the structure. Typical to renos, a little more work and money then we had planned on was the end result. Actually, the end result was a pretty nice deck! Way to go hubby!!!
Here are some pictures of the process.
