Scope of Work: Zuri Deck Refacing
Town: Mountain Lakes, NJ
Timing: 4 days
The back deck off this Mountain Lakes, NJ home had seen better days. The wooden structure had been repaired in places where it had rotted, but it was getting beyond a patch up job. It was time for some serious repairs. Instead of building a whole new deck, the homeowners opted for a deck refacing project. Deck refacing is where the footprint and frame of a deck remain, but all the boards and railings are replaced. Many times, homeowners opt to replace wood with composite for a longer lasting and lower maintenance option.
Zuri Deck Refacing
We began this project with some deck demo. All of the existing railings, built-in benches, and decking boards were removed. Once the frame and posts were revealed, we inspected them for rot. We replaced any rotten pieces with pressure-treated lumber.
Then our carpenters began to install the deck floor boards. The homeowner selected a warm mahogany color for the decking. Zuri composite comes in this color so there we do not need to apply any stain or sealer. This dramatically shortens the installation process and will eliminate a lot of maintenance down the road.
Once the floor boards are installed it is time for the stairs. The carpenters rebuilt the stairs down to the backyard.
Afterwards, the Intex railing system was installed. Intex is a PVC material that can be painted. It is very durable and requires very little upkeep. This product will never rot.
In about four days, this “new” Zuri deck is ready to be enjoyed.
