For much less than the cost to replace your deck, G&T can rebuild it with new decking, railings, and stairs. After powerwashing and stripping, we'll stain the whole project for what many happy customers have found to be better-than-new because of all the money they saved!
Whether you're just wishing for a new stairway, or you're ready for a double-decker deck, G&T can design, build, stain and finish the deck you're dreaming of! Call for a free estimate, and ask to see some of our finished deck projects.
While decks are required to meet certain code standards and load capacities, it's estimated that only half of the 40 million existing decks are code compliant— leaving 20 million decks that need to be rebuilt or retrofitted.
G&T's deck experts will inspect your deck's construction, connections, fastener corrosion, and materials for rot and cracks that may compromise your safety. We'll also give you an estimate for any work needed to make it code-compliant.
Any connections that do not meet the requirements discussed in this guide can compromise the safety of the deck. In many cases toenailing (i.e. joining two wood members with angled nailing) does not constitute a proper connection. Connectors must be installed with the correct fastener.
Vital connections may have degraded over time. Wobbly railings, loose stairs and ledgers that appear to be pulling away from the adjacent structure are all causes for concern.
Metal connectors and fasteners can corrode over time, especially if a product with insufficient corrosion resistance was originally installed.
Wood can rot and degrade over time with exposure to the elements. Members within the deck frame that have rotted may no longer be able to perform the function for which they were installed.
As wood ages it is common for cracks to develop. Large cracks or excessive cracking overall can weaken deck framing members.
"Goldie did an excellent job replacing wood that had rotted around our windows and roof. He went the extra mile when he found additional problems, to ensure we would not have this happen again. He painted the new wood, and cleaned up the area before he left. The job was completed very professionally and expediently. We would definitely call him for any future work." -R.T., Macomb Township, Michigan
"I would like to express my appreciation for the fine job you did in building the pool deck for my family. The project was of very high quality, on time and within the estimate you provided. The site was left very clean and all waste materials removed. I would have no hesitation in recommending you for other work." - D.M., Clinton Township, MI.
"I am writing this letter to express my appreciation for the work you and your company did to refinish the decks of our home... your people did an excellent job diagnosing the problems, stripping the old paint, replacing as needed the rotted boards, sanding the deck floors and finally recoating with the proper coating. The decks now look great. We were very pleased..." - R.D. -Bloomfield Hills, MI.
