Scope of Work: Deck Resurfacing Using Zuri
Town: Denville, NJ
Timing: 6 days
Most homeowners love their back deck. Especially during the Summer when they can enjoy al fresco dining and cocktails, grilling, and relaxing. However, most owners of pressure-treated wood decks find the annual upkeep a little much. Oftentimes, what should be annual maintenance gets put off year after year. At which point the deck needs more than just a restaining.
In this case, the homeowners wanted to enjoy their deck without this maintenance burden moving forward. They asked us to resurface their wood deck with Zuri composite.
Deck Resurface Using Zuri Composite Decking
A deck resurfacing project, or as we typically call it, a deck refacing project, is a process of replacing the non-structural elements of a deck. The posts, beams, and joists remain, while all the decking, railing and stairs are replaced. Because the structure is not changing, the project doesn’t require a building permit or the associated inspections. This cuts down on the project timeline and allows us to finish these projects in just a couple of days, in most cases.
For this deck resurfacing project, we removed all the railings, decking and stairs. After inspection of all the structural components to ensure that they are in good shape, we began by laying the decking. Zuri composite is a prefinished material that comes in a variety of colors. You can see all of them at our showroom where we have an actual deck composed of all the color options.
After the decking, we installed the railing system. This began with the posts, and then included the balusters and railings. The system is also a man-made material that will handle the weather and require little to no maintenance. We also put in a gate at the top of the stairs to allow the dog to enjoy the deck as well.
New Zuri stairs were installed and then this resurfaced deck is ready to enjoy for years and years without anything to do but a sweep and a rinse.
