Resurfacing Weather Worn Wood Decks
Is your existing wood deck looking rather sad and weather worn?
HandyDeck deck tiles offer a more cost effective and simpler remedy than a total rebuild or resurfacing with new wood planks.
Provided the deck is structurally sound and doesn't have an uneven surface due to warped planks, you can simply lay our HandyDeck tiles directly over the top of the existing deck for a fuss-free, cost effective re-surfacing solution.
Naturally if any of the old timber is showing some decay or is in an otherwise unsafe condition, it should be replaced, since HandyDeck deck tiles will not provide any additional structural strength and need to be laid on a firm level surface
Another great reason to use decking tiles to repair or resurface an existing upper level deck is that you can easily make the area under the deck waterproof. Here's how.
Firstly you lay down an EPDM sheet to completely cover your existing deck. You can buy EPDM in different widths with lengths up to 50' wide from specialist suppliers such Best Materials or Resource Conservation Technology who can also custom fabricate a single sheet to avoid seams.
Cut the EPDM sheet to fit the area you want to keep dry underneath and try to make sure there are no seams in the EPDM sheet if possible. If you need to seal around pipes or posts etc., there are sealers made specifically for EPDM such as M-1 Sealant.
Then you just click the deck tiles into place over the top and in no time at all, you'll have a great looking wood deck on top and a totally dry area underneath.
