Decks Remodeling Washington DC-Get 4 Easy Steps Guide

Home Improvement
Did you know that you can remodel your decks just by following 4 easy steps? This job is not that hard as you think it maybe. Take a good look at the step by step decks remodeling process and give you home a new look.

Remove the rail carefully

Your first job is to carefully remove the existing rail around your deck. It is a delicate job. If any damage occurs during the rail removal process, you may need to start over from scratch. Repairing or replacing your deck would cost you extra and it will be a pain on your deck remodeling budget. For expert assistance, you can consult with any local Decks Remodeling Washington DC service provider.

Deck cleaning job

As soon as you completely remove the railing from the deck, you are now on the cleaning phase. The existing deck must be cleaned properly using a pump sprayer or other cleaning accessories. You can use a special deck cleaning solution along with the sprayer for best results. You must use water-based cleaning solutions and spray it evenly on the entire deck. Some old decks may have sticky dirt and worn out a paint job. You can use a high pressure water sprayer to forcibly remove the old paint job and dirt. Spray from a distance of six inches, not more, for best results. Give approximately a 12 hours’ time letting it get completely dry, then you can apply stain.

It’s time to rebuild the steps

Traditional decks have box-shaped steps on one of its side. You can create same style steps on the other three corners. You need to match the new steps with the existing one very carefully. It should not look like you have old steps alive with the new one. Taking correct measurements and using the same kind of materials are the two ways to get out of this problem. In case you want to totally replace the steps, give this job to a professional Construction and Remodeling Services DC. Curved and sculpted design on the wood steps is possible if you hire an expert in this remodeling job. The basic job of rebuilding the steps is quite easy. First, you need to build a frame around the deck area where you want to build new steps. After building the frame, it’s not time to put the floor boards one by one.

New paint job for your deck

Since you have successfully remodeled the deck, it is now time for a new paint job. The main purpose of this job is to hide the remaining worn out paint layers on the deck and its steps. The best option here is using the dark brown wood stain. This paint color will give your deck a rich and classy look overlapping the old paint layer. You need to use rollers and paint brushes for even layering of this new paint. Apply one coat of paint, wait for it to get dried completely, then you can apply a second coat if needed. Keep the remaining paint somewhere safe and away from heat. You will need this when you need to reapply a fresh coat or repair a worn out area. You can also hire Home Additions in Washington DC service provider for a perfect paint job on your newly remodeled deck.
