Deck Repair Changes for 2022!


Deck Repair Blog

In addition to general carpentry repairs and replacing rotted wood we also perform deck repairs in Overland Park, Leawood, Olathe, Shawnee, Lenexa, Loch Lloyd Village MO and Kansas City. The biggest change since 2021 is the huge increase in the cost of cedar and other lumber and trim. We usually recommend cedar decking but because of the huge price increase some of the synthetic composite decking products now have a similar cost to the cedar decking. We recommend the new and improved Trex decking and a powder coated metal railing that will not rot!

There are are wide variety of composite decking materials on the market for you to choose from. We recommend Trex product that has a variety of high quality composite decking products that we feel offer the best value for our customers as well as a 25 year product warranty. There are cheaper products out there but the overall appearance and performance often do not meet our customers quality standards. These lower cost products are available if cost is a primary concern. The high end products are great and have a wide variety of great looks and are perform well over time in our harsh climate but the cost difference is significant especially with a larger deck!

At Premier Painting Company we are still using cedar for deck repair of steps, railing or partial deck repair or replacement. Often when doing the partial replacement we will pressure wash the deck and apply deck stain and or paint. Pressure washing and deck staining will help will get the new boards to look like the older parts of the deck for a uniform look.

Another common deck repair we perform regularly is leveling the deck or steps in addition to replacing rotted deck boards, steps and railings. Arbors and other wood structures that are exposed to the elements often need repair as well. Our goal is to get your deck safe to use and to get it looking like new for your outdoor enjoyment!
