Experts tend to agree that the average lifespan of a pressure treated wood deck in Bel Air, Maryland is somewhere between 10 to 15 years. Sorry to burst your bubble. All good things must come to an end, as they say. Even your once proud deck will eventually need to be replaced. But when? 10-15 years is a large gap.
Is it Time for Deck Replacement?
As we have already said, the average lifespan for a wood deck is 10-15 years. And that is just the average. Some decks last longer. Others don’t even make it a decade. So how do you know when your deck needs replacing? Well, there are several factors to consider:
First and foremost, it is important to choose the right decking company. With 40 years of experience, Freedom Fence & Home has provided the highest quality deck construction services throughout Baltimore and Harford counties. Specializing in Wood (we use pressure treated southern pine, cedar, and Ipe), Low Maintenance, and Composite decks, our crews are experienced, knowledgeable, and high skilled, ensuring each deck we build is properly installed to meet your expectations.
Wood decks require annual maintenance. Without regular sealing and staining, your wood deck will not last. Period. When moisture is allowed to penetrate your wood decking, it will accelerate the aging process, lead to woot rod and eventual structural failure.
