After a summer of avoiding the deck stairs because we deemed them unsafe, we decided it was time to redo the entire deck. We have spent too many summers re-staining the deck just to make it look decent. After all the hail storms and adverse weather in Colorado, a wood deck just isn’t practical. We went ahead and upgraded to a composite deck with iron railings. We had them replace all the support beams and the other posts. The end product looked better than we could’ve imagined. No more staining for us. This deck will be maintenance free and should last the rest of the time we live in this house.
