Project Spotlight: Vancouver Home Adds Beautiful Port Orford Cedar Deck

Today’s project spotlight shows what a difference deck resurfacing can make! Our crew resurfaced a rotting deck that now looks brand new, adding years to the existing structure for a fraction of the cost of a new deck. We added a new staircase, new metal-and-cedar handrails, and replaced the old landing with a small deck halfway down the stairs that overlooks the backyard water feature. We love creating usable transitional spaces like this one! These are just a few of the options that Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking can provide to rejuvenate your tired looking deck. Let us turn your old eyesore of a deck into the envy of the neighborhood.

 The second-story deck on this Vancouver home was ingeniously placed—its height created a tree house feel. Yet the cedar decking was looking worse for wear. So our first task was to resurface 240 square feet of Port Orford cedar decking. We also resurfaced the family’s hot tub area. After our resurfacing handiwork, the cedar’s pure blond tones shone.

Next up: Add 152 square feet of custom decking to replace the old landing, which we demolished on site. We also built 68 square feet of cedar steps, for a uniformly charming and accessible decking area. For safety and aesthetic pleasure, we added sturdy cedar handrails with 26” round, black protective bars running vertically. After adding 3 gallons of natural deck stain with UV protection, we ended up with a breathtaking cedar deck.
