Are you planning to remodel your deck yourself? In an article for Time magazine, Porch.com editor-in-chief Anne Reagan suggests stepping back first and thinking about what your remodel will entail. Will your deck just need a few touch-ups, or do you want a total makeover? For complicated or detailed jobs, you might want to leave it to a licensed contractor. A qualified deck-building professional has the experience necessary to remodel a deck using the correct materials and building it to code. A pro will provide you with a project timeline, and will have access to the resources necessary to keep things on schedule. In addition, a pro will have experience in handling project hiccups, such as uncovering dry rot or discovering sinking deck footing, without letting the timeline get too far off track.
