New posts, a cable-rail system, and an applied rim board breathe new life into a weathered deck
When a home needs repairs, there sometimes is also an opportunity to make significant visual or structural upgrades. Such was the case with this deck. The framing was sound, and the pressure-treated decking could wait a few more years until it had to be replaced, but the painted rim and railing were in bad shape.
The homeowners decided to take the opportunity to dress up the deck with new posts and rails, cable infill, and trim around the rim. Their decision not only opened the deck to a better view, but it also transformed the whole exterior.
