Say Goodbye to Rotting Decks: Upgrade to #TimberTech Composite Decking

Are you tired of the annual headache of maintaining your wood deck? Do you find yourself constantly battling rot, splinters, and weather damage?

Wood decks can be beautiful, but they come with a hefty price tag when it comes to maintenance.

From yearly staining and sealing to constant repairs, the costs can quickly add up. In fact, studies have shown that wood decks can cost up to three times more to maintain than composite decking.

Rotting decks become soft, cracked, split, and discolored. They require deck replacement or repair, depending on the severity of the damage. 

What causes a deck to rot?

Wood rot is a common issue among homeowners with wooden decks, especially in humid climates. Understanding the causes of wood rot can help you take the necessary steps to prevent it and protect your investment.

One of the primary causes of deck rot is repeated exposure to moisture. When wood decks are constantly exposed to water, whether from rain, snow, or even high humidity, fungal growth like mold and mildew can begin to form. This can weaken the structural integrity of the wood over time and lead to rot.

It's not just wood rot you have to worry about when it comes to water damage on your deck.

Excessive moisture and rotting wood can also attract pests, such as termites and carpenter ants.

These pests can further damage your deck and create infestations that can be costly to eliminate.

Signs of rotten deck boards

Inspect these areas and symptoms for rot:

  • Posts and wood near the ground

  • Dark, discolored, or moldy spots

  • Around the ledger board

  • Gutters, sprinklers, and other neighboring water sources

  • Suspected pest infestations and damage

Replace rotten boards

You have to replace any rotten decking you identify to maintain a safe and attractive deck. You can replace individual boards if only a few are affected.

Extensive decking rot may warrant replacing the entire deck surface.
