Deck Building & Deck Repair
Lighthouse Renovation and Repair can address all your decking needs. We will tear down your old deck and build a new one, or we can simply repair your existing deck by replacing any rotten or bowing wood. Whether the wood is structurally unsound or simply cosmetic, an expert deck builder from Lighthouse Renovation and Repair can repair it. A common theme on our deck repairs is rebuilding handrails and replacing the old decking with an engineered product built to withstand the rough elements of the ever-changing Kansas City weather.
Choosing the Best Materials
Overland Park & Kansas City
There is always a trade off when selecting decking material. When looking at decking products, there are several varieties of engineered materials–some are composite materials, which have actual wood ﬁbers or dust mixed with different types of plastics. These products will not rot in the same way as wood, but they can be prone to molding and swelling. Using these types of material can later call for deck repair.
There are a few decking products that are 100% PVC and are guaranteed not to rot or swell, but these materials are the priciest of all the decking materials and can be very uncomfortable to walk or play on in the heat of the summer. When you’re trying to select the right deck material, trust an expert deck builder at Lighthouse Renovation and Repair to help you decide what material makes sense for your home and budget.
If you decide to use wood decking, the basic choices are cedar or treated lumber. Treated lumber will typically outlast cedar, but most people ﬁnd cedar to be a much more eye appealing option. With proper maintenance, cedar decking can last nearly as long as treated lumber.
