Safety first! When deciding whether to repair or replace your deck, the first step is a thorough inspection. While you may consider doing it yourself or with the help of a friend, expertise is key to ensuring that the project meets code requirements. The most important factor is to make sure that your deck is safe and structurally sound.

When to repair: If the existing deck passes the safety check, then it is often possible to remodel a deck by installing new decking, railing, and trim, or to replace certain boards that are in need. This can be a great way to keep costs down while restoring your home’s outdoor space.

When to replace: In some instances the work to repair a deck will approach or even exceed the replacement cost. If your existing deck is more than 20 years old then the answer is usually to demolish completely and build a new deck structure. Our team can help review these factors and determine the best investment based on your goals.

Building a new deck solves every structural question and provides the opportunity to consider new layouts and design choices.  This is where we can get creative. Desksos is a design build firm that is there with you from the beginning. We love the blank canvas moment and custom tailoring a space especially for you.  A good deck is the bridge to the outside world, complementing the house to nature, and to your neighborhood.  Our local and knowledgeable specialist, is equipped to help you through every step: text 978-788-2055 or schedule a brief call HERE.

Although it is often possible for homeowners to pull their own permits, when hiring a contractor it is best to have their company file the project permit according to their scope of work. This ensures that the work is being performed by licensed professionals and also gives the homeowner access to the state insurance fund.

Dexksos removes the hassle by handling all permitting and providing guidance along the way. Our knowledge surrounding building codes, zoning restrictions, and city ordinances ensures your project is completed on time and within budget, while avoiding potential fines for code violations. Permit fees are based on the cost of your deck; each municipality sets its own fees. To estimate your costs with ease, text Dexksos at 978-788-2055 or schedule a brief call HERE.

  1. Define the size and layout of your deck by narrowing down its purpose. Will it serve as an extended living area to dine or entertain? Or is it meant to be an intimate space for storm-watching and lounging nearby? This will shed light on its proximity to your home, the views you’d like to have, the square footage it requires, cut-outs for a firepit or pool and more.
  2. Select a decking material that aligns with your building and budgeting goals. If you prefer a low-maintenance deck that comes at a higher price point, Dexksos would recommend composite material or the cheaper alternative–vinyl. Vinyl is affordable and easy to clean. But can lack in strength and durability, and tends to fade in color. If a painted or stained wood aesthetic caught your eye, we may suggest hardwood or pressure-treated pine. These come at a lower price point, compared to composite, but require recurring treatments to preserve their color and durability.

  3. Explore decking features that seamlessly blend with their surroundings to create a beautifully coordinated display of stylistic expertise! Not ready? We can plan for features if they fall outside of budget now… If stairs are part of the design, Dexksos will help you select railing and balusters to complement your vision. Whether it’s steel, wood, aluminum, cable, glass or more, this choice will depend on the design of your stairs (straight, L-shaped, U-shaped, spiral) and your previously selected decking material (composite, hardwood etc). Additionally, consider the look of your decking trim or perimeter skirt, available in vertical or lattice styles with a variety of colors with diagonal or square patterns to choose from. We even offer custom-built benches to enhance your outdoor oasis! Discover the options available for your dream deck by texting Dexkos at 978-788-2055 or scheduling a call at your convenience HERE.

Grasping the anatomy of your deck is crucial, as it helps ensure the structural integrity, safety and effective upkeep of the outdoor living space. The material chosen (pine, hardwood, composite, etc) defines your decking boards (primary surface/platform for your outdoor activities) and stairs (access points to and from your deck). The vertical posts that support the stability and uphold your deck structure are called posts, with beams or joists service the same purpose horizontally. For a more rigid underfoot feel, beams/joists can be spaced at 12” on center rather than the 16” typical spacing. The ledger board comes in your decking material chosen to horizontally secure and attach the deck to your house or building. The decking trim provides a protective seal to achieve a refined finish for your decking area, capping edges, corners, and exposed sections on decks or steps. This takes into account the parameter skirt, which acts as a cover or barrier around the base to enclose the underside of your deck. The fascia boards are installed bordering the deck surface to cover the end cuts/joists, running along the perimeter of overhanging edges. Lastly, deck footings support the posts and provide stability for the entire deck structure, as a a cast or poured concrete pad placed below the soil line.

Considering budget and maintenance, wood decks like Pressure-Treated Pine or Cedar are cost-effective but require more upkeep (such as water sealing or re-staining). Composite decking is pricier upfront but demands minimal maintenance. When it comes to style, both wood and composite offer customization–with wood allowing for stain or paint choices and composite providing various colors and designs. Composite withstands the heat best and doesn’t swell or splinter like the wood alternatives tend to do. This is especially important for families with young children, pets, (or anyone really) planning to walk barefoot on the deck throughout those hot summer seasons. Dexksos provides unbiased consultation for your unique project, leveraging a decade of experience and technologies: text 978-788-2055 or schedule a call at your convenience HERE.

How you maintain decking can depend on the type of decking, how old it is, if it has been previously treated, and its overall condition. Just as you prepare your home and yard for changing seasons, extend the same attention to the maintenance of your deck. It’s important to inspect its flashing along your home annually, as well as secure the fasteners, regardless of the material type. If the a wooden deck’s coating is starting to look tired or worn (as long as the finish is intact and hasn’t started to crack, peel or flake off), a renewal application will usually revive it by cleaning and applying a fresh coat of compatible decking paint, oil or stain.
