This Client came to me through nextdoor.com looking for someone to resurface her 10’x17′ deck. Working in the air, on a 2nd story deck adds its own set of challenges but I think it turned out great. Let me know what you think.
My Client decided to have her deck resurfaced with Trex Tiki Torch deck boards and use their white vinyl rail system. If you don’t want the hassle of sealing a deck every year or two this composite and vinyl combo is the way to go.

Old, gnarly, deck boards

Found this after removing all the deck boards
I love having a truck. I backed down this hill between the two homes so I could load up the old decking.
Ready to go to the dump
I covered all the existing joists and box band with the flashing tape. It keep water from getting into the original nail holes and rotting out the treated lumber. It also seals around the new screws used for the Trex decking.
Now you see them…
…now you don’t. I really liked this color matched hidden fastener system.
Nice, clean new decking and railing.
It looks great in the afternoon sun.
Also installed a new railing system.
Instead of using the Trex facia board for the box band I Installed pieces of decking. I think it finished off the deck nicely.
