Replacing an Old Deck

We have been all about home improvements 
this Spring. This time it was the deck.

Replacing an Old Deck and adding Patio Furniture

Our old deck was getting close to 30 years old which meant it was way past it's prime. The boards were rotting, the stairs were rickety, so it was time.

We got a few estimates for different types of wood and man-made decking materials but in the end decided to go with Trex which is a durable man-made product that lasts a lifetime. It will be the last time we will need to replace the decking.

As you can see this was not a DIY project for us. We hired RDC Interiors on Long Island for this project and they did a fabulous job. 

They began by removing the top layer of wood decking. We were lucky enough to be able to save the footings and the under side of the deck.

This was a big job and removing all those nails alone took half the day.

The dog usually uses the back door to the deck to get to the yard and had a bit of a hard time with this renovation.

Construction of the new deck went quite well but I will admit Mother Nature gave us more than a few set backs this year. 

A few days it was cold and rainy but they worked...

As you can see things were coming along nicely...

And then there was this... We had to shovel off about a foot of snow to continue with this project. These guys were great!

Finally the railing was added and it looked like it was time to put out the furniture.

And then again there was this... What the heck? I was all about getting the cushions out there and enjoying the deck!

Finally after a few more cold days the weather turned and it seems we went from winter to summer all in a week.

Our deck furniture came from Amazon. It was put together in a few snaps and we love it.

The cushions came from Target and the rug came from Tuesday Morning. I ordered the yellow sunbrella pillows {here}.

We built a DIY fire pit just behind the railing a few years ago and added the vinyl fence last year. 

Our yard is ready for Summer and so am I!!
