Composite Deck Repair and Maintenance
by Atlantic Deck Systems
Give Your Composite Deck a Long Life
Built for a long lifespan, if you currently have a composite deck you’ll know that this is true. Composite deck boards are created without cutting down a single tree. Reclaimed wood and recycled plastics make up 95% of their composition and when combined together with heat, they form a heavy duty product that lasts between 25 and 30 years longer than your usual wood deck.
A fairly new product, composite decking came along in the 90s. But it’s rapidly gained popularity to the point where the majority (57%) of clients across the US ask for it for their decking needs.
While you won’t be stuck power washing and resealing a composite deck every two years, there are however some tips to maintain your deck and of course—if you run into issues, our team at Atlantic Deck Systems are more than happy to lend a hand.
Stay on Top of Problems
Abrasions, broken boards, deep scratches—if your deck has experienced one of these things you may want to replace the affected boards. One life hack you can employ is simply turning the board over to reveal the cleaner underside. But what if you scratch that one? Then you’re pretty much out of options. Our deck repair contractors can easily replace one of these boards within 24 hours so don’t be concerned about the appearance of your deck—just call Atlantic Deck Systems—we’ve got you covered.
Older uncapped composite may warp. In which case, you will also need to replace boards. In fact, even more so than with a cosmetic scratch. Warped boards can cause people to trip and injure themselves and no one wants that!
