Before Monk’s Home Improvements arrived on the scene this Boonton, NJ home’s deck was in need of some attention. In a matter of days our team had completely refaced the deck, and completed other substantial repairs.
This Boonton deck was in need of some upgrading. At first glance the deck appeared to be in decent condition.
However, all the rotted wood that needed to be replaced is evident when we viewed the deck from below.
To begin this project all of the floorboards were removed.
Brand new joists were installed to properly support the deck. Additionally, new sistered 2x4s were also put in to give the deck even more support.
Monk’s carpenters installed all new pressure treated lumber decking and railings. Pressure treated lumber is a popular choice for exterior projects because of its moisture-resistant properties.
The homeowners requested a new lattice screen be installed. They wanted to add an element of privacy to the newly remodeled deck.
Monk’s painters will also stain the deck, but not immediately after installation. Pressure-treated lumber is not stained right away in order for the lumber to “off-gas”. This deck will be stained in a few weeks.
In only a handful of days our team at Monk’s Home Improvements had fully updated this Boonton, NJ deck. The homeowners are able to (privately) enjoy the beautiful summer!
