Face lift in Andover, MN! They chose to go with maintenance free and it looks great!

Face lift-What is a face lift?

 

Well let me explain it here. A face lift is what we call it, when we’re able to reuse the current framing, and footings on a deck. This deck actually needed on of the 6″ x 6″ posts replaced so we did that as well. What we do is we remove the old decking, railings, and stairs (if you have them) and replace the decking, railings, and stairs. These homeowners decided to give their deck a face lift. It saves money as well, we don’t have tear down a completed deck and we reuse the existing framing, and footings as long as they are ingood shape. It’s amazing what a face lift can do for an old deck. It looks brand new! 

What is this deck made out of?

This deck is a AZEK maintenance free deck with Trex select white railing system with black circular aluminum balusters. White fascia boards around the perimeter of the deck and 2 white solar post caps on the railing.

Gorgeous Deck Face Lift in White Bear Lake, MN! Are you ready to update your deck?

What a difference a face lift can make!

This deck in White Bear Lake was older and showed it’s age. The family wanted to update their current deck to a composite deck so they could enjoy the beauty of a new deck and not have the maintenance that comes along with Cedar and Treated Pine Decking.

 

AZEK is what they chose to go with and I think it’s beautiful!

The existing deck is a 14′ x 16′ and we added 4′ wide stairs which is typical on our decks. This deck is 5′ off the ground and they wanted angled stairs, I think they really compliment this deck nicely. We also added 3 new 6″ x 6″ support posts to make the frame sturdy again.

 

The homeowners chose to use AZEK in Slate Grey with white fascia and a custom maintenance free railing in white as well. This one turned out so well and our home owners are very happy with there new face lift deck!

Deck and Gazebo Facelift, Maple Grove MN

To transform your ordinary deck into a beautiful and comfortable space that you will enjoy, you should start with a professional deck design tailored to your home. Every home offers various prospects for building a creative design for an attractive and useful deck. A truly attractive deck design is one that incorporates your existing home and garden. If you own an older home, chances are that you have a wood deck that needs some revamping or a “deck face lift” as we like to call it.

Justins Camera June 2012 038

Although sometimes these old decks can be an eyesore that you just want to tear down and haul away, they can also be quite helpful in determining the ideal characteristics of your new deck. As well as save you money if your old deck frame is in good condition and can be reused in the new deck construction.

Having a deck in place is going to help you immensely when performing a deck face lift. You can ask yourself the following questions.

Justin Camera July 2 082

Does our current deck location provide you with shade? If not maybe an expansion can be added to your deck to provide you with a shaded area that you can enjoy. If your yard does not have natural shade from trees, then it may be important to place a pergola or gazebo on your deck to give you the much needed shade that you will desire on a hot summer day.

Justin Camera July 2 079

You can also ask yourself does our current deck layout provide us privacy from our neighbors or busy streets or lots in your area. If you do not currently have the privacy on your deck that you desire than it may be a good idea to include privacy panels when remodeling your deck.

Also consider the placement of your deck on your existing home. Is it placed off a living room? This can cause problems if you have a carpeted living room, the heavy foot traffic from the deck will track across your living room and very quickly soil your carpets. It is always best to place a deck off of a Kitchen area, this makes it much easier to move food and dishes inside and outside if you care to enjoy a nice meal on your deck.

Our professional deck designers can help you figure out the layout and the materials that are going to work best for your new deck based on the factors that are already in place with your existing deck.

Another great idea when remodeling your deck to make it seem bigger and get a more specific use of space is to provide multiple spaces for specific purposes. You can have multiple deck levels or just sectioned areas. You can have a reading nook that is shaded and set back from the high traffic areas, an area in full sun for lounging or sun tanning or a step up to a dinning area where you can cook and entertain with a bump out to set your grill on to keep it out of the way of people walking around the deck.

Designed properly, a deck remodel can provide innumerable hours of enjoyment for you, your friends and family as well as increase the value of your home.

Call our office today to have a designer come out to give you a free estimate on how much it would cost to give your old deck a new face lift. Call our office at 763-753-9796.

Deck and Gazebo Remodeling, Maple Grove, MN

We love making old decks look new again. We recently did a deck and Gazebo remodeling project for a homeowner in Maple Grove. The homeowner had a deck and gazebo that were in need of a makeover. The deck boards and railing were cracking and decaying and the gazebo was also in need of some repairs and was experiencing some deteriorating, They knew that this deck was in need of some TLC and a fresh new look, so they called us and boy did we enjoy making this deck beautiful again! The homeowners liked the shape and flow of their existing deck and gazebo but because the gazebo was open, they were not able to enjoy this space as much as they would be if it were screened in to protect them from the mosquitoes and bugs at night. So we took a look at the framing and structure of the deck and determined that we could give them a beautiful deck and gazebo face lift, for a fraction of what it would cost to build them a new deck and gazebo. We removed the old decking and railing and replaced it with a new Azek composite decking and we screened in their gazebo so that they can sit in it and enjoy it at night without worrying about the bugs bothering them. We also applied new composite fascia to the outside of the Gazebo to give everything a fresh new appearance. The homeowner’s love their new deck and screened in porch and we know that they will be able to enjoy it for many years to come. If you have a deck or porch that is in need of a makeover give us a call today. Call our office at 763-753-9796 for a free estimate!

Deck Make Over with Maintenance Free Decking

We had a customer come to us in the fall of this year, 2011, with a deck that was in severe need of an extreme makeover. As you can see in the before picture, the outdated railing style really showed the age of this deck. The deck was also starting to show signs of aging and deterioration that could possibly lead to a safety hazard in the future. The customer liked the lay out of his deck, he thought it worked well with the space and flow of his back yard, but he just wanted something that looked new and was safe and secure. We built the customer a new deck using Azek decking in Morado color. The customer had a budget that we needed to stay within and so in order to stay within the budget but still make the deck as low maintenance as possible, we used cedar railing that blended well with the decking and black circular balusters. Since the railing gets very little wear and tear, it is common to mix cedar railing with maintenance free decking to save money and as you can see by the after picture, it still gives a very nice appearance. The customer was pleased with the new updated deck that was not only beautiful, but also safe and secure, and comes with a warranty that will ensure it lasts for many years.
