Daily use and exposure to the Baltimore County climate can really wear on even the best quality decks over time.

Signs Your Deck Needs Replacing
If you think you may be in need of a deck replacement, Excel Fencing and Decking can come to your home and assess the situation. In the meantime, there are some telltale signs that your deck could be nearing the end:
- The middle of the deck has begun sagging and is uneven.
- The railings surrounding the deck or on the stairs are weak or loose.
- Nails or screws will not remain securely fastened.
- Rot is beginning to edge its way around the frame.
- Deck boards are rotting or “springy” when walked on.
Another enemy to older wooden decks in Baltimore County is termites. Even hardwood decking, which lasts for decades, begins to rot and becomes susceptible to a termite infestation. When a deck begins to sag, all of the rot attracts termites and makes it easier for them to burrow. If termites are caught early, it is easy to repair, but if not they will make your wood more vulnerable to collapsing. This is an accident waiting to happen and would be more costly to repair.
When your deck is a safety hazard because of a structural issue, it’s always better to replace instead of repairing. When Excel Fencing and Decking assesses your current deck, we will advise you on what is the safest and most cost efficient choice for you and your family.
Regardless of whether your deck is made from wood, PVC, or composite decking, Excel Fencing and Decking is the Baltimore County expert to call. We will ensure that everything is replaced and restored to peak condition, so you and your family can go back to enjoying all of the beautiful seasons that Baltimore County has to offer.
