Rotting Wood

Assuming you have a wooden deck, the wood will eventually deteriorate and can possibly decay over time. Rotting wood is a common problem and sign of an older deck that is beginning to lose its structural integrity. Rotting wood is where moisture and fungi have set it, causing the wood to weaken and fall apart. The most common places to look for rotting wood is around the deck boards, near the bottom of the posts, or the joists. If the wood is discolored or flaky, wood rot has most likely set in.

Cracked or Splintered Deck Boards

If you have a couple of cracked or splintered deck boards, you can easily replace these. However, if you are noticing a lot of these compromised boards that are even possibly lifting up from your deck, it’s probably time for a deck demolition. While replacing a couple of boards here and there is fine, it may be more worthwhile to replace your entire deck so that the wood is the same age. Plus, having a patchwork deck can detract from the overall aesthetics of your yard as well.

Loose Railings

Railings are on your deck for safety purposes. If your deck railings are wobbling or loose when you touch them, it may be a sign that your whole deck is compromised. You can replace these loose railings, but if the wood is soft or warped where they attach to the deck, they may never be sturdy. Replacing the entire deck will probably be the more prudent thing to do. Call ELEV8 Demolition in Jacksonville for a free deck demolition quote today.

Rusted And/Or Missing Hardware

If you notice a lot of loose or missing nails, screws, and bolts, it’s probably time for a deck removal service for your Jacksonville home, especially if you notice rust. Rusted hardware is not very strong, meaning your deck is not well held together as it used to be. With deck removal services, our demolition company can remove your deck so you can invest in a new deck. Call for a free estimate today.

Your Deck Looks Old

Everything wears out eventually, and if your deck has not been well maintained either by you or by a previous owner, it’s easier to invest in a deck removal service and have your deck replaced rather than try and repair all of the problems. Plus, old decks are unsightly and can be dangerous. Who wants to walk on deck boards that move when they do? ELEV8 Demolition offers superior deck demolition services in Jacksonville.
