Decking is an ever popular garden feature, and for good reason! Many of our customers are looking to take advantage of the additional free space in their outdoor garden - and create a place where they can entertain visitors outside! Much like any part of your home or garden, decking does require repair and maintenance if it is to look its best. A Victoria Deck Pros, we can offer repair and replacement services. These range from more simple to complex solutions. Whatever the challenge a timely repair can save you much more money in the long term!
Any exterior to a residential property is inevitably exposed to all of nature's elements. Across all the seasons, from cold winters to hot summers, it is likely that water and sunlight will discolour your decking over time. Sadly, faded boards can make your outside space look tired, and run-down. If you spot discolouring, we can get those boards looking good again! Our Deck Stain is available in a variety of colours which means we will always have the product to match your vision. You could pick a colour which contrasts with your house, or simulates the appearance of a brand new deck!
Broken Deck Boards
This issue is one of the most common that we see in our work at Victoria Deck Pros. This problem can often arise as a result of water damage or the movement of people on your deck. As they become weaker, the crack. Whilst this is something that is really easy for us to repair, you shouldn’t delay! If you spot a broken deck board in your outdoor space, then get in contact with us as soon as possible. Inevitably, a replacement deck board is much cheaper than a whole new deck!
As many of the decks we service have been made from wood, they are unfortunately susceptible to deck-rot. Deck rot can arise for a multitude of reasons: if the temperature changes, or there is a pool of standing water on or by your decking. Even leaves and sticks stuck between your deck boards can cause rot! As bacteria and fungus break down the wood, it can ruin the structure of your deck. If you see that parts of your deck are suffering rot, then get in touch with us so as to get it repaired as quickly as possible!
These guys are outdoor decking’s enemy number one! Termites, or tiny little insects, can burrow their way into your wooden decking and make a network of homes. This can be very dangerous, as your deck boards become soft or hollow! These pests have been known to spread to your home if they aren’t dealt with speedily. If you notice that you have this issue, employ a contractor to remove them. Then we will be more than happy to replace the boards and beams which have been damaged, making your decking look as good as new!
